Without the word of God, there cannot be comprehensive success. Nobody can have comprehensive success without following the word of God as a constitution and as a direction finder in this world. When we relegate the word of God to the background, we miss out the loaded blessings that are contained therein, we miss out the inherent blessings that are there. We thank God for calling us, for showing us the way and connecting us. We must never take this for granted because there are so many things out there that can be very confusing, deceitful and if you pursue those things, you will miss the real thing. May you not pursue shadow in the name of Jesus. May you not pursue vanity and miss the substance in the name of Jesus Christ.
Whether you realize it or not, the very moment you are born, know that you are born into a very intense spiritual warfare. Not to recognize this is to be a victim. God does not only want his children to be victorious but also more than conquerors. Being born into spiritual warfare is not an option. What is optional is to choose to be an overcomer. You just have to choose; it takes a quality decision to be an overcomer. The only people who are rewarded in God’s kingdom are overcomers. That is why you must opt to be an overcomer.
Challenges will definitely come but God has made ample provisions for us in his word to overcome. We shall operate the above only principle, we shall never be beneath in Jesus’ name. Never forget that the essence of this revelational knowledge is for you to apply for your personal benefit and for the benefit of others.
Eph. 6:12, “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.” We are not called to do physical combat; we are called into spiritual warfare. The kind of warfare raging over every soul born of a woman is such that it is a close combat thing. It is not fought from afar. Just like a wrestling match, it is a very close combat.
Many times people carry the demons inside of them which are capable of destroying them while still being arrogant. Spiritual warfare is real. The powers that are fighting against you are very wicked and the devil will do everything to make you trivialize it. This is because he enjoys it when you fail to recognize that there is a battle raging over your life.
Demons don’t operate from afar, when they do, they can only oppress, afflict or obstruct. However, they prefer to possess people in order to take absolute control of the mind knowing that whatever controls the mind controls the man. The devil does not like to play a second fiddle, he wants to take charge, he prefers to take the driver’s seat. It appears that demons operate best through human vessels.
- Everlasting and most merciful Father, I thank you for the generous provisions you have made for me to walk in dominion over the forces of darkness. I proclaim that satan has no part in me, no power over me, and no unsettled claims against my life. All have been settled by the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross at Calvary in Jesus’ name. Amen.
