Mental anguish, frazzled thoughts, weariness of the physical body are just some of the conditions I’m experiencing from battling in the spirit. Warring in the spirit wears down the natural body. My body is tired from wrestling in the spiritual realm for the past couple of days and it’s not over. Warfare is real! It is defined as
It truly is an honor to be invited to the battle, but man can a daughter get some reprieve? When warfare presents itself, I get to praying in my heavenly language. Nothing prepares me better than praying out of myself and out of my mindset. I get understanding quickly of what to do next. I have been so pressed into this battle that I have completely lost sight of where I am. I’m at the bus stop praying in the spirit. While walking to my office the tongues are flowing. I get to the office and start binding the works of the enemy with no regard as to how I must look to the sinful people who don’t know or acknowledge my God. I’m at war and any man’s opinion of me means nothing; it holds little weight when I’m not at war.
Yesterday I warred against a principality attacking the mind of an individual to the point that they weren’t even coherent. Putting into practice binding the spirit that was oppressing the mind and loosening the Holy Spirit to bring peace and comfort were the weapons for that hour. Yes I have authority over demons and I exercise it! Time-out for lazy believers with no power, no prayer life and no fruit but lots of criticism of those who do put the time in building up their most Holy faith. Where is your fasting life? Where is your prayer life? Where is your study time? I rebuke lazy, coward believers; get in the closet and repent and don’t come out until you have some power from on HIGH.
A soul needed prayer and I began to pour out for them:
I cast out the spirit of despair and oppression that is attacking the mind and body in the name of Jesus. I ask that the body come in alignment with Your holy word and be made whole now in Jesus name. Let Your grace and mercy comfort and give holy boldness and courage to withstand the tricks of the enemy. Let this mind be in them that was also in Christ Jesus. Lord lift up a standard against this demonic attack on the mind, the body and their future. Jesus be glorified in them now through their willingness to submit to Your will and Your way through obedience and humility. Please hear the prayer of your humble servant this day…Amen.
The result of that consistent crying out for that soul yielded some peaceable fruit. An hour later I received word that things were better. Rational thinking was back and the heart was changed to forgive and apologize. Gentleness and meekness showed up. Even joy made an appearance. There was no more despair but an accepting of what God allows- maturity. I don’t rejoice that demons are subject to me, but rather I rejoice that my name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. I’m working to please my Lord so I can hear Him say well done thou good and faithful servant.
Well today I’m met with the kinsmen of the principality that was driven away yesterday. This one comes with a lying spirit. I hate lies because they are a rejection of Jesus Christ. He is the way, the TRUTH and the life. No man comes to the Father unless they come by Him. Why lie and miss out on access to unfathomable things.
I tell you being a soldier in the army of the Lord is work.
While walking to my office this morning the spirit of the Lord dropped an individual into my heart and I began praying in the spirit on their behalf. I hadn’t spoken to them but the Lord knew they were going to need someone standing proxy for them. Two hours later I heard from them…good thing I prayed because their behavior and conduct could have easily shifted me out of character. I will not destroy my witness for someone else’s weakness. I’ve been called to be a strength. I know my purpose, you seem to be in the dark about it, but I’m not. Let me help you get delivered. Who doesn’t want to be free?
The authority that comes with walking in the Holy Spirit is unmatched. God is ALL-POWERFUL and He won’t allow His children to be mocked and tossed to the side. He stands up strong in us when we yield completely to His power. He rose up in me this morning in a way that I have never experienced. When my heart for the individual was not being recognized, it didn’t stop me from being of Christ. I still prayed for them; deliverance means more to me than how one feels about me:
Thank you for their life, their heart, their soul and their body. Thank you for considering them worthy to be tested by the enemy in the manner in which they have been over these past few month. I pray now that they will surrender their will and life completely to You. I humbly ask that You open their heart to see where they need more of You in it. I stand proxy for them and ask for forgiveness of their sins. Lord allow Your blood to cleanse and make whole. Drive out all tormenting voices especially the wicked principalities that toy with the mind and lead them to say and do things that defile their witness before You. Drive out anger, drive out bitterness, drive out resentment, drive out fear, drive out rebellion, drive out immaturity, drive out lust, drive out manipulation, drive out false worship and drive out the enemy that desires to sift them as wheat. He wants to destroy their soul while they keep toying with the idea that the enemy is their loved one. Give them the mind of Christ that will reveal to them even in this state of mind that they are loved and the enemy will be destroyed when they receive that love. Touch the heart right now Lord and cause them to make decisions that please You and only You. Let them not shipwreck their faith and the faith of those who watch them and look up to them. Grow them up in the admonition of righteousness and bring back to their remembrance every pure and holy word spoken over their life through prayer, prophecy, ministry, teachings, readings, and time spent in Your presence. Be with them now to comfort and fill them with Your Holy Spirit until they produce fruit that remains. We bind the work and assignment of the principalities and rulers of darkness that want to drive a wedge between them and their family. We loose the love of Jesus Christ upon them right now, right where they are and cover them even as they go through this day We thank You for hearing the prayers of Your righteous servants and we believe that You’re able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all that we ask or think. We’ve asked a lot today but You’re God and You’re able to do all things well! Be thou glorified this day with us and our ministering to this soul. Amen.
Today’s reading which I only read moments ago because I was praying for the deliverance of a soul falls right in line. I even forwarded it to the individual so the Word can be received coupled with prayer:
Not Carnality but Christ
3 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, 7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.
