The enemy walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he can devour. He is so cunning and strategic, that often, we don’t recognize that he is working through people to harm us, often without their knowledge!
Demons target us throughout our lives, and sometimes the same demons will come against us through different people. It is important to ask the Lord for discernment and wisdom so that we can bind, demobilize, dismantle, uproot, and demolish any demonic attack targetted at us, separating the person from the demon.
There are two important ways to effectively fight against demonic attacks. The one is spiritual – declaring the Word of Truth, praising, speaking in Tongues, binding and loosening the spirits, and praying for the people involved.
The other is physical – setting healthy boundaries that protect the relationships, aligning it correctly.
Sometimes we are surprised that we go through the same hurts, fears, or experiences again and again. Patterns form in our lives from the trenches the enemy has dug through repeated attacks to weaken, discourage, and break us down so that we won’t inherit our purpose. The Lord is calling us to see beyond the surface, recognizing the enemy’s tactics, so that we can effectively and purposefully close all open doors and avenues.
The Truth sets us FREE! As the Lord opens up your eyes, showing you the demonic attacks and strongholds set against you, repent for tolerating those violations, and stand firmly against it. Do not give the enemy any ground. Love those involved, speak Truth, set boundaries, and remain walking on Higher Ground with God. Have ears to hear and eyes to see what the Lord is revealing to His sons and daughters at this time.
The Lord is setting us free! He is cutting the fetters off our ankles. He is breaking the chains, He is putting a STOP to all demonic patterns that have taken root in our lives. He is realigning our relationships to come into proper alignment according to His Will and Purposes.
The Lord has been shaking our lives, so that we can stand in purity before Him, ready to run this new race set before us. He has prepared us, just as He has prepared Joshua and Caleb in the desert. We are about to step into the greatest inheritance and purpose. Let the Lord continue the shaking in our relationships, for He is bringing forth new connections and new friendships… not only with new people, but He is changing the very DNA of old friendships and relationships, so they come into His Divine alignment.
If some relationships have to die in order for them to be resurrected again, let them. Give them into the Loving Hands of God, and trust that He will bring New Life to those relationships in His Time. Let the Lord be the One we pursue beyond all, the One we run with in freedom, abandoning all that would keep us bound and captive.
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
3For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. 4For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. 5We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, 6being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.
23And Jesus answered them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. 26If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.
1 Peter 5:6-9
6Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, 7casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 8Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.
