Without the power of pray. We will handle things poorly. When we’re being attacked by the enemy we may try to handle the attacks ourselves. That’s the wrong approach. We must put on the “Full Armor of God.” We’re not fighting against the flesh and blood but against principalities. When we take off our Armor we will be attacked greater. The best weapon to use against evil is prayer.
Any one using the past against others is not being Godly. We’ve all done it and some of us are still doing it. We must pray for healing. Satan will use those closest to us to project attacks. We may try to rationalize the attacks through arguments but that will only make Satan happy. When we remove our pray walk. We remove the protection and those days when we’re being attacked with great force we’ve removed our Armor.
Each time that we pray to rebuke Satan. We should say, “In the Name of Jesus.” We have the power to rebuke him in Jesus’s name. Satan attacks us when we’re vulnerable and he attacks us at bedtime and in our sleep. He attacks the mind. When people claim mental illness. They’ve taken on a lable that isn’t of God. God does not attack the mind and body. Satan does.
When we pray. We should pray for our minds because the mind is what the devil will attack first. When the flesh is trying to operate on your mind. They are being used by the devil. Pray that the weapon formed shall not prosper. Satan uses those who are in our lives because he knows they have the greatest influence.
He will attack anything that is good and anything that will help us. Praying for discernment will help us determine who is with us and whose against us. Sometimes those who portray to be with us are actually against us and those who may seem to be against us may be with us. We won’t know that without discernment.
With the Full Armor we will become frustrated and be without understanding. We will have to go through extensive prayer. We face battles that could leave us in a state of depression if we’re not prayed up. The devil enjoys using husband’s against wives and vice versa. He wants to create division. He isolates. When someone in your life wants to isolate you from others. They’re being used by the devil.
When we feel depressed, feel anger, and bitterness we’re being attacked. When there’s envy. The devil works over time. He doesn’t want us to prosper. He takes away from us. He makes us believe that we’re unworthy and that we’re losing our minds. He will tell us that we have mental illness and certain situations are taking a toll on us. He uses foul language and if we’re not careful that foul language will become our language.
We have to ask God for protection in the name of Jesus so that we’re able to overcome those things that are keeping us from being prosperous. God wants us to prosper but Satan does not. He will try to make sure that we suffer financial attacks. Suffer from sickness and that we become weak. He uses anyone while in their vulnerable stages. He’s a great pretender. He will make things look as if he’s doing good but he’s actually hiding his deceit. He attacks us at all hours. He uses people to sholve us in a corner so that we’re attacked.
No matter how upset we become. We can not fight against evil that way. Our weapons are prayer, worship, and fasting. God wants us to get closer to Him and sometimes those attacks are the answer but that doesn’t mean that every attack was formed to get us closer to God. Being attacked means that the devil realizes that God has something in store for us and he wants to stop it.
He wants to stop our “purpose.” He wants to steal our joy and take our peace. He can’t stand when we work for God. He’s God’s adversary. He will try to work extra hard on God’s people. He wants us broken, angry, and filled with despair. He wants us to feel hopeless and feel as if we have nowhere to turn. If he can keep us away from our assignment then he is pleased.
We have to stop allowing the devil to use us. We can’t fight evil with evil. When people have done or doing harmful things to us, things that upset us, it’s best that we pray about it. The devil uses our anger to create division and tormoil. We have to remove those things that keep us from having a relationship with God and Jesus.
