We can be strong in the Lord and stand against the wiles of the devil. Isaiah 54:17 tells us that there will be weapons against us but that they will not prosper. Satan seeks whom he can devour. We can get “captured” by ourselves by not listening to and obeying the Holy Spirit. Learn to dodge the next weapon. Every tongue that rises against you, you shall condemn. (Isaiah 54:17) Oppose, not tolerate, negative talk against you. You may have to condemn the words that even loved ones speak or have spoken against you. You have a heritage to break everything built up against you. You can say “NO!” and not let self-judgment cause you to back off. In Luke 13:11-17 a woman had a “spirit of infirmity” assigned against her. A “spirit” is a personality, entity, being. It is alive. She didn’t glorify God when she was crippled over but when she was healed. She was loosed (like a donkey is untied) from the spirit of infirmity which came from Satan. You can know the devil’s there, and still not get paranoid. Don’t look for reasons why something bad is happening to you, but if there’s sin in your life, repent and look to the blood. Then, when God looks at you, He sees the blood. If you stand against the enemy, you need the breastplate of righteousness on you. Romans 8:1 says that there is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. You empower Satan when you say, “What’s wrong with me?” What’s the devil’s “revival”? War. God is for you! You must condemn condemnation. The weapons formed against you are words. There is power in the Word of God. Sin no more. Get the living Jesus in your heart.
