10 PRACTICAL KEYS FOR SPIRITUAL WARFARE
LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF EPHESIANS 6:12(NLT)
"For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places."
1.When your warfare is tough , there is something great at the other side . be persistent and don't give up . Keep praying and remain hopeful and confident about your victorious end . Heb 10:35 (NIV)"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded."
2.Note : When the enemy is trying to discourage you by all means through consistent attacks . Beware! - he has seen something in the spirit realms , you have not "yet" seen . so don't give up , until the Lord gives you a glimpse of it . Remember the wise men who saw the star of Jesus . Matt 2:2(NLT)""Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him." Key- In spiritual warfare , the enemy can cover your star for you not to be seen .but glory to His name there is nothing hidden that shall not be made known . Luke 8:17
3.In spiritual warfare we fight from a victorious stand point. why? Jesus has already won the victory , we only stand our ground and enforce it in our lives by believing in His finished work.( Roms 8:37). Always have it at the back of your mind , what Jesus did on the cross . If not you would be discouraged , when the battle gets tough . Col 2:15(NIV)"And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross."
4.When you war , keep your focus on JESUS . never look down into the arena of your fleshly senses. That is Satan's domain , you won't win in that arena .Remember what happened to Peter when he allowed his flesh to dominate his thought in the storm. Matt 14:30(NLT)"But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. "Save me, Lord!" he shouted."
5.When you war , your faith has to be consistent with the truth . no matter whether the enemy is gaining an upper hand or not. Never let go of Mark 11:22 (Amp)"And Jesus, replying, said to them, Have faith in God [constantly]." Key- you don't doubt . whether you feel defeated or not . Hold on to the truth !
6.Discouragement will weaken your faith , when you engage in spiritual warfare . Even when you get spiritually weak . switch to worship and praise and then back to prayers when you gain strength again . Psalm 50:23(NLT)"But giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God."
7.Demons are not easily tired , because they are spirit beings . They can war you for a whole day . But prayer and fasting helps you to overcome them . Isaiah 40 :31"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
8. When the battle seems tough , switch into speaking in tongues. confuse the enemy and let your spirit pray directly to God via the Holy Spirit . 1 Cor 14:2 (NLT)"For if you have the ability to speak in tongues, you will be talking only to God, since people won't be able to understand you. You will be speaking by the power of the Spirit, but it will all be mysterious."
9. When the battle seems tough , switch again into reminding God of who He is. God loves it when you give Him praise .Psalm 18:2"The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower."
10.At times you might get beaten terribly , but rather than get bitter . Say "NO" to the spirit of bitterness and hold on to your peace . your trust in God is a testimony of Satan's defeat . Isaiah 26:4.(NIV)"Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal."
" your warfare is an experience people are waiting to learn from "
PRAYER : Father teach me the secrets of spiritual warfare's in Jesus name , Amen.
