Day 36: How to Fight the Enemy

From the 40 Days of Daily Bread Series.

roman soldier fightingYou probably know the devil doesn’t want you going forward in God. Remember you aren’t fighting people, but evil spirits (Ephesians 6:12). You’re up against his thousands of years of experience and you need to be aware of his plan against you. Often he wants to hinder the forthcoming victory in the area that you are working on, but don’t worry because you have spiritual weapons at your disposal.

The devil wants you to think the weapons God has given you are weird, useless and foreign so you won’t use them; however, if you don’t fight him, he will lay siege to your faith. It’s time to gain your victory. An example of this in action have been my last two posts. If you missed them you can read them in Salvation: It’s Not Just God’s Job and Sally’s Victory.

Weapons of Your Warfare

  • Faith

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

  • Word

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 NKJV

  • Name of Jesus

If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. John 14:14

  • Blood of Jesus

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Revelation 12:11 NKJV

These kinds of Christians don’t love their life in this world. They are the ones that produce testimonies.

  • Binding and Loosing

Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Matthew 18:18 NKJV

Bind: to restrain an evil spirit from moving against you

Loose: to release the powers of God

Use the opposite of the attack of the enemy (e.g.:  Bind evil thoughts. Loose the mind of Christ. Bind self pity. Loose confidence.)

  • Praise and Worship

Remember King Jehoshaphat? All they did was set the praisers out front and they won the battle supernaturally! (2 Chronicles 20:21-24) The Lord inhabits the praises of His people. When the presence of the Lord comes in, evil spirits move out!

Daily BreadApply the Word

This section is to help us respond to His promptings. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. James 1:22

  • Write the list of weapons in your journal. Don’t leave your weapons laying beside you. Put on the Armor of God, use it and win! Take some time right now to warfare!

  1. Perfect post for today! Satan has definitely been attacking me the past few weeks, since I started having consistent, focused quiet time. Thanks for the reminder that I have to fight back.

  2. I agree with Amanda……the enemy has been on the attack; we just have to use those weapons to gain the victory. I’m praying for you, too, Amanda! Timely post, Kelly!
