“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” – Ephesians 6: 10-18
If you are in a season and it feels like everything is going wrong, and the ones whom you thought had love you have even turned their back on you. You have close friends and love ones plotting to take your very life, and you cannot quite figure out why. Well I can tell you why; it is because of spiritual warfare that is going. The devil has setup shop in your life and he plans to allow his business to take over your life. His pure mission and vision is to take your life. Nevertheless, you have not figured that out yet because you have been looking at it from a worldly stand point, when in fact there’s a fight going on in your life against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Come join me in prayer in the Sanctuary where souls are set free and self-empowerment is the new movement.
Father we come to You in payer declaring that no weapons that are formed against us shall prosper. Sickness and disease shall not prosper, and any other weapon that Satan has shall not prosper, satan. I serve you notice that your powers are useless, inefficient and inoperative in our lives. I decree it, I declare it, in Jesus Name. Thank You God – Amen.
