The Key to Speaking Words That Trounce Your Demonic Enemy

by | May 22, 2018 | Spiritual Warfare

The spiritual realm must react when you speak out!

Your words have destroying power. God’s Word says, “Though an army should encamp against me, my heart will not fear; though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident, (Ps. 27:3). Are you confident that when you speak out the spiritual realm must obey? Jesus had destroying power. He had the power to destroy the works of Satan, to tell a fig tree to die and to tell disease to leave.

Jesus transferred that power to us. Similar to when a person on earth gives their legal rights over to another person and creates a power of attorney document, Jesus gave you His power of attorney when He conquered the grave. Your words now have destroying power.

You carry the same power Jesus did. Your words speak life or death (Prov. 18:21). What are you going to release with your words? We are in a consistent spiritual war, a war that is won by prayer, declaring and the words we speak out into the spiritual atmosphere. The battle cannot be won in our minds. We must learn to get up, get active and speak and decree out against the attacks of the enemy. We have binding and loosing power through the words we speak.

You have the power within you, the Holy Spirit, to annihilate and abolish the powers of darkness coming against you. Your words are powerful, but you have to know the power they carry. One way you can know the power of your words is by being in the Word of God daily. When we are fighting a battle, one of the greatest things we can speak out into the spiritual atmosphere to combat attacks is the Word of God. The Word of God is sharper than a two- edged sword (see Heb. 4:12). The two-edged sword is powerful, but what you need to know is one side of that blade is the Word you take in, and the other side is the Word you speak out. You need both parts of that sword, your intake and output, to conquer spiritual attacks.

In order to combat spiritual attacks, you must believe you have the authority to release something out of your mouth to break up the atmosphere. You have enough power in your words to change and charge the spiritual realm. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and self-control.” I like how the Complete Jewish Bible also states this verse. Instead, of the word “self-control,” it says “discipline.” This verse is often quoted for people who need to overcome fear. Instead of focusing on the word “fear,” let’s focus on what God has given us. He has given us a spirit of power and love. He has given us discipline and self-control. He has empowered us! Therefore, if God has given us power, love, discipline and self-control we should use it to take hold of our circumstances instead of allowing our circumstances to take hold of us.

He has given us the power, but we need to come to a realization that our words are prophetic and when we speak out we are targeting the spiritual realm. The spiritual realm must act with a positive or negative response. We have authority. We have received the infilling of the Holy Spirit when we ask. Now let’s use something we asked for and speak out, declare out and decree out and watch our situations change.

Declare out today: When I speak the spiritual realm will activate. I prophesy over myself that when I speak and release the power and love of God the spiritual realm activates and responds to my words. {eoa}
