SPIRITUAL WARFARE: Defeating the Spirit of Fear


During the 1930’s, while facing the Great Depression, one of the worst economic crises in American history, President Franklin D. Roosevelt began his inaugural address by saying, “…the only thing we have to fear is…fear itself;  a statement so profound and yet so true.  I believe President Roosevelt knew that if the spirit of fear had gripped the people of that day, it would have caused a nation-wide panic that would have crippled every American.  He knew that if they were going to rebound from the Great Depression that they would have to fight against the spirit of fear.

Fear is a very real enemy to your faith!  As simple as this word is, fear is a massive demonic nemesis that attacks the mind and can manifest in the life of the believer in so many different, subtle but, yet “deadly” ways.  Once the spirit of fear overtakes your mind, this demonic spirit can drive you to destructive and even self-sabotaging behaviors.  The spirit of fear can cause you to walk away from the plan of God for your life.

This tormenting demon will cause you to give up on a marriage that is ordained of God because you do not have the confidence or courage to make it work; fear will cause you to say “no” to the ideal man for your life because of your own insecurities; fear and doubt can overtake you and cause you to never launch the perfect business idea because you are crippled by the fear of failure.

The spirit of fear will drive you to self-destruct and waste your entire life living in regret, wondering what could have been or what should have been…if you had not allowed the spirit of fear to overwhelm you.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power,
and of love, and of a sound mind.

In 2 Timothy 1:7,  the Word of God encourages us that God has not given us a spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind. Fear is of the devil. If the spirit of fear has attacked your life, please know that this attack originated from the realm of darkness. It is not the will of the Father that you should be bound, crippled, stifled, hindered or blocked by spirits of fear, doubt, worry or any other spirit at all.

1 John 3:8
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested,
that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Fear is an illegal enemy that invades your life in an effort to destroy your destiny. The legal blood of Jesus was shed to deliver you from every demonic attack of the enemy – even the spirit of fear. God loves you so much that He sent His Son, Jesus to die so that you can have a right to live an abundant and blessed life. In 1 John 3:8, Jesus said that He had come to destroy every work of the devil. Receiving the love, power and grace of God, will empower you to overcome every spirit of fear and with confidence fulfill God’s divine purpose for your life.

PRAYER: (If you are wrestling with a spirit of fear, just pray this prayer, in faith unto God…)
Father, in the name of Jesus, I thank you that you ear is in tuned to the cry of the righteous and that you hear us when we pray.  I ask, O Lord that you would deliver me from every spirit of fear, in the mighty name of Jesus.  I repent for allowing this spirit to hinder me from believing in your love and power which is at work on the inside of me.   Deliver me  from every spirit of fear, now O Lord, that I may fulfill your divine purpose for my life.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION:
I decree and declare that you will no longer be bound by the spirit of fear but that the peace and love of God will rule your heart and mind, in Jesus name!

GAINING THE VICTORY OVER YOUR INVISIBLE ENEMY

In John 10:10, the Word of God reveals the enemy’s ultimate goal of destruction in the life of every believer. You will only be able to overcome the attacks of the devil as you commit to engaging in spiritual warfare.

(John 10:10)
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might
have it more abundantly.

In 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, we are admonished that although we are living, moving and functioning in a natural world that we have been given spiritual weapons in order to combat the attacks from the spiritual realm. Once you understand the enemy and the battle that you are facing, you will be better prepared to withstand his calculating, unforeseen attacks.

(2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty
through God 
to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that
exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into
captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

One of the greatest spiritual weapons given to the believer is Prayer. Your effectual, fervent prayer has the power to tap into the realm of the spirit and begin to shift and affect what is happening in the natural realm. In your fight against your invisible enemy, you must continually look beyond what you see in the natural and learn how to engage the spirit realm. The warfare that you are in is real. The enemy you face is real….but the power of God that is available to every believer is even more real and more powerful. Once you believe God and believe in His power which is at work in your life, you are destined to win!

SCRIPTURES:  Ephesians 6:13 – 18, 1 John 3:8, 1 John 4:4

 PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the power of God that is at work in me and on my  behalf.  I thank you that greater is Jesus Christ on the inside of me than the devil which is in the world.  I thank you Lord that as you have overcome the world, so can I.  Thank you for Your Word and Divine Presence in my life.  Thank you for giving me the victory, in Jesus Christ name!

PROPHETIC DECLARATION: PROPHETIC DECLARATION:  I decree and declare that the spirit of God will give you the courage and strength to overcome every invisible enemy and that your faith will be strong in Him, in Jesus name!

SPIRITUAL WARFARE – Fighting The Invisible Enemy (Part 1)

There are many times we are confronted with the challenges of life and are left trying to understand or “make sense” of what just happened.   At times life will throw unexpected curve balls that can destabilize us and leave us in a state of confusion or disbelief.  Is it just the proverbial “life” that we are facing or is there something greater at work behind the scenes that is affecting our every day existence?

For years, the spirit of God has spoken to me concerning the reality of the spirit or the invisible realm. This realm literally exists and is more active and impacting than the natural realm.  In many instances, activity takes place from this realm first before manifesting in the natural realm. The Spirit of God further revealed that there are several major challenges affecting the life of every believer, one of which is knowing the enemy that you are fighting and knowing how to engage the battle.

Ephesians 6:10, 12
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the
wiles of the devil. 
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, 
against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Unfortunately, whether you are willing to acknowledge, believe or accept it or not, there is a real war that exists in the spiritual realm between the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness.  As a believer, you are the light of the world and a part of the Kingdom of Light which is governed by the Almighty God. As a result, the devil seeks to oppose you and commands a confederation of demonic spirits from the realm of darkness to wreak havoc in your  life.

Jesus died and shed every drop of blood in His body so that you and I can have the power and right to live an abundant life, free from the vices of the enemy.  It is not God’s will that any of His people should live defeated.  He encourages us to be prepared for a spiritual battle that He has already equipped us to win.

SCRIPTURES: John 16:33,  Ephesians 2:2, Revelation 12:7-10

 PRAYER:  Father, in the name Jesus, I give you thanks and praise for everyone who have taken the time to read and understand the truth about spiritual warfare and how to win this fight against the enemy.   I am grateful that every child of God is a part of the powerful Kingdom of Light and is equipped to overcome their invisible enemy, the devil.  Thank you for the victory you have given us through the blood of Jesus Christ.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION:  I decree and declare that greater is Jesus Christ in you than the devil that is in the world and no weapon formed against you shall prosper!
