From Verse 11 and 12 of our passage, there are two kinds of enemies you can fight: already weakened enemies and determined enemies. It is easier to deal with the already weakened enemies but when you meet with determined enemies, you must take a stand, and one of the things you have to do is to let the enemy know that you are a determined fighter.
Until David was willing to fight, Goliath stopped the whole of Israel. The Goliath that Saul didn’t face dethroned him. The Goliath that David faced enthroned him. When the enemy that you are facing changes, God is giving you a signal that your season is changing. When you suddenly notice new enmity or opposition, rise and fight. If you will not fight, demotion will come. If you lose spiritual battles, it will show in the physical realm and when you win spiritual battles it will also show in the physical realm. If you allow the devil, he will give you all kinds of unbiblical experiences. Sometimes, it is not enough for you to just break the yoke, you must stand against the spirit supervising that yoke.
There are some demons that want to share your inheritance with you, and you must stand to say NO. There are Christians that the only place they make it is in their dreams; the devil has restricted their blessings to the spiritual. Those are determined and wicked enemies. Take a position in your spirit that you are not going to fail in life. It is not going to be easy, but there is nothing that the devil has done that cannot be undone by the power of God.
PRAYER: Lord, I take authority in the spirit over every onslaught of hell to dethrone me. I take my rightful place in the spirit and in the physical in Jesus’ name. Amen.
