The Oil Of Joy - The Warfare
17 The seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.’
Whatever thoughts stay in our mind is what we attract (Terri Savelle Foy). Most of us have been taught that the warfare is about fighting demons which are doing things to us externally. However this kind of thinking leaves a big loophole in the background for the devil to work unhindered. Actually before the devil or any demon can do anything to us on the outside, they must first get us to accept it in our thoughts. This is how the devil worked on Adam and Eve, as soon as they accepted his suggestion, the next step just followed easily. That is how the devil tried to work on Jesus but He had precise knowledge and revelation of the word, which He spoke to stop the thought taking root in His mind during His temptation.
There is tremendous power available through taking time to study and meditate on what the word says about various issues. I have recently been listening to a series on the Authority of the believer and the power of the Name of Jesus by the Copelands and it has changed my life. There were certain areas of my life which i had left wide open for the enemy to work. But now I am to not just recognise his evil schemes but also know exactly what God wants me to do to put a stop to it. I use the three weapons of the word of God combined with the blood and the name of Jesus. Because i have built my faith through the study it causes the power to be released every time.
RELEASE THE POWER OF GOD IN YOU TO REVERSE THE ENEMY’S WORKS
Prayer: Father, i thank You for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses in Jesus's Name. Amen
(2 Corinthians 10:4 paraphrased)
