4 Words of Encouragement When Engaging in Spiritual Warfare

by | Jul 14, 2020 | Spiritual Warfare

Have you been dealing with spiritual warfare? Are you getting discouraged and overwhelmed with everything going on around you?

Let’s read Hebrews 10:11-17 (NASB):

Every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins; but He (Jesus Christ), having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet. For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified. And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying, ‘This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days,’ says the Lord: ‘I will put my laws upon their heart, and on their mind I will write them,’ He then says, ‘and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.’

I would like to share with you four points to encourage you in battling spiritual warfare:

Forgiveness: When we have complete and total relationship with Christ, the atoning sacrifice and the shed blood of Jesus Christ washes us clean. He writes His laws upon our hearts and will not remember our sins and lawlessness anymore. We will become properly seated with Him in heavenly places.

Favor: It’s still being poured out over you from heaven, even during spiritual warfare. Continue to proclaim, declare and decree His favor over your life.

Footstools: In the Scripture above, we see that Jesus’ enemies were made His footstool. Likewise, our enemies will become our footstool because we have been positioned and seated with Christ at His royal table. You are in complete and total relationship with the Lord. Your enemies will become your footstool and that footstool will become your launch pad as you step into the greater things of God!

Faith: Stay seated and stay steadfast. Those who have been sent to buffet your flesh cannot have an effect on you. Instead, they will help keep your mind on the Spirit of the Lord and cause you to see things from Christ’s perspective. Some will try to rob you of your favor and steal your joy. But when we keep our focus on Christ, we will overcome and be victorious in every area!

God is moving in a mighty way, and He needs you to release His glory upon your enemies. By allowing God’s glory to move through you, you will be able to bless your enemies and declare good things will happen to those who persecute you. This is how the kingdom of heaven gets deposited onto the earth.

I know you’ve been going through some spiritual warfare. I know things have been coming at you. You feel the buffeting. But don’t let that distract you! Your enemies cannot have any effect on you.

No matter how hard they try, they cannot deter you from the calling God has for your life. You are an overcomer. You are victorious in every way! No matter what comes, or better said, tries to come—you have the victory!

Encourage yourself in this; then encourage someone else today to stay the course and overcome! {eoa}
