Lord, train my hands for war and my fingers for the battle. Let me not be outwitted by the schemes of the devil. I want nothing to be stolen from my life due to ignorance. Open my spiritual eyes and ears to discern correctly the true state of things. Teach me to deal with demonic hindrances and oppression, and how to experience the overcoming life.
Hanaya, your weapons of war are not natural, they are supernatural and mighty. The sword of the spirit is the Word. It's a double-edged sword. It deals with your flesh and with the lies of the devil.
My Kingdom suffers violence and the violent take it by force. You cannot swing the sword just by the knowledge of scriptures. You can only swing the sword effectively if you have a fiery spirit.
Many problems continue because my people are passive about resisting the enemy. Because of trauma or longevity of a trial, or some deception, the devil has managed to take the fight out of them. They become spiritually dull, settle for less, and accept things just as they come, without any spiritual investigation and discernment.
Not all sufferings are in My will. Some even die prematurely without fulfilling their purpose.
The one who is in you, the Holy Spirit, is greater than the one who is in the world. Submit to His counsel, resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Use the shield of faith to quench the fiery darts of the devil. He wants your faith to fail and give up. I submitted to the will of My Father and resisted the devil in the wilderness by speaking the Word and he left.
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. And I have given you the authority to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing by any means will hurt you.
My people do not understand their authority over the devil and he manages to steal from them. Your spiritual authority is based on your union with Me. You have the authority to bind the devil's power and release My power.
There are times when you have to enforce the victory that I won for you into your situations. People who are ignorant of the spiritual battle and the modus operandi of unseen demonic entities, especially in these times, are far more likely to become casualties of the schemes of the devil.
You don't need to overly focus on what the devil is doing. But do not be ignorant of his schemes. The devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. He doesn't appear in obvious ways. If you accept his narrative of lies and facts, you will become prey to his agenda.
Demons are afraid of your effectiveness because you're of the light. They will try to hinder you and break your momentum with fear and lies until you fight back with a fiery spirit.
Do not just settle for a breakthrough, aim for a permanent overthrow. That's how they will stop pushing your buttons. They will realize they have lost you because you are not reacting anymore as they predicted.
My kingdom is your promised land. Though I gave Israel the promised land, they had to rise and fight to possess it. And you too must fight for yours.
Base your faith on what My Word says, not on what you can see or feel. When circumstances do not change instantly, some give up and let the devil attack them without resisting him.
My truth is the reality that can defy the facts. When I walked the earth, I spoke a different reality into the facts that people were facing. I talked to the trees, the wind, the sea, the sickness, ...
