Sometimes your success is not due to avoiding enemies but MEETING THEM HEAD ON and overcoming them. The promise given to David was to “rule thou IN THE MIDST of thine enemies.”
I have a prophetic word for you: “One by one those strongholds in your life are coming down under the authority of Christ!”
This is a post I encourage you to both like and share with others. I sense it’s needed right now by friends nearing a breakthrough.
Before we occupy in the physical we overcome in the spiritual. Where is the real battle? The carnal mind is an enemy of God! Romans 8:7 says…”the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.”
THE REAL BATTLE
The first battle is to bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. If we can bring down the carnal mind we can win!
A “stronghold” is simply a pattern (perhaps generational) that has a STRONG hold on your mind. The Lord says “strongholds are about to come down.” We can access the mind of Christ!
USE WEAKNESS TO ADVANTAGE!
Humility enables you to admit your weakness. But then as you bow low God’s empowering grace fills the low place with power. This isn’t a battle of will power, but YIELD POWER! Use weakness to your advantage. God’s strength is made perfect in weakness. “HE GIVETH MORE GRACE. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but GIVETH GRACE unto the HUMBLE” (James 4:6).
The timing is NOW, right after PASSOVER, the BLOOD is calling you to draw near to God. NEAR to the throne of GRACE. Take time now in His Word. God wants to give you a fresh Word for war. Read till you find the scripture that applies to your battle. It will jump out! Once found – MEDITATE on these Words. Get still. Experience the strength that comes from His PRESENCE rising up in the midst of you.
Watch as your will is empowered by His will to rule in the midst of those other thoughts.
THEN your outward circumstance will submit to you.
