Before we can engage the enemy on any terms, we must first learn some principles that assure us. We need to be filled with faith. To engage and to be victorious are two different pieces to a whole.
Dealing with spiritual warfare, as every christian we must build our faith and believe that God will go with you and that you will be victorious.
Here are some key points that I have learned and continue to learn through out my sharpening and warring process.
Recognizing the enemies strategy
Knowing times and seasons you are in
Understanding spiritual patterns of warfare
These points wont win you the victory but are good to understand and be equipped with. Lets focus on setting positive principles that will enable you to gain ground quickly on the enemy. (Element of surprise) However it is only good as well for a short fleeting moment unless we hold that ground. Here are five points that will equip you!
Focus your attention on Jesus Christ. His Blood is the most powerful protection in the universe. Hang on to the fact of God’s promises in your life! Jesus Christ came and shed his very blood because He loves us. ( Confess the fact that He loves you and use a prayer such like this for your mornings and days in spiritual warfare: Lord, I cover my mind, emotions, my body, my soul, and my spirit with the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Read (Revelations 12:11)
Allow the Holy Spirit to have His way with you. Pray through out the day. Let the Holy Spirit show you negative attitudes, habits, feelings, and behaviors that need to be changed. The Holy Spirit is God’s power given in order for you to become like Jesus Christ. Read (Ephesians 6:18; John 16:13)
Immerse yourself in scripture. The Bible is the written Word of God. The Word of God is a living thing that works in us even when we may not understand or comprehend full what we are reading. Read (John 8:31) *Scriptures below that help you to build up your faith. Study them and learn their personal meaning for you in every situation*
Command the devil and demon powers, in Jesus Christ, to go away and leave you alone. Make it clear that you follow Jesus Christ no matter what. Above all, do not argue with the enemy and entertain his thoughts because you cannot beat him that way. Read (James 4:7)
Hang on to other Christians. The Christian walk is not a solo performance. You will need other people in the Christian fellowship to support you and edify your faith. Read (1 Thessalonians 1)
As stated before here are some faith based living words from the Bible that will help you engage your adversary. Build your faith and gain ground with them. Hold down your fort, where ever you go.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all
spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ
2 Peter 1:4
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature …
That ye be… followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
“Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or
three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
1 Peter 2:24
Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.
And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed, and many others, and cast them down at Jesus’ feet; and he healed them: Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel.
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
3 John 2-4
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
1 John 5:14-15
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
