(5) Our Hearts Are For God; But There Is An Enemy

Lord, many of us want to live our lives for You. In these end time days, the enemy is working mightily, sending out his demon forces to lie and try to decisive us. We ask for Your wisdom to recognize his deceptions, and as Jesus’ ambassadors to use His authority to defeat the enemy’s every attack, and evict any demon that tries to come against us. 




Unfortunately, the enemy knows us well and finds our weaknesses to try and lure us back into the worries of the world. But You, my Jesus, have defeated satan for us. We now have the authority of Your mighty name as a weapon to evict the enemy from our lives. We may need to do it on a daily basis, but each time we claim our trust in God and His promises as weapons, our faith grows stronger, for You never fail us Lord!

I learned this by experience. The enemy has been trying hard to attack me. He knows my vulnerabilities. He comes against me in my quiet time with demons of distraction; there have been demons of depression and oppression against me. These two were strong and made some headway until Holy Spirit keyed me into their maneuvers, and reminded me that I have the authority of Jesus Name to evict them from my mind. That I did do! Now they can no longer affect my thinking. I am free.

It is not necessarily that easy all the time. The enemy likes to attack at night when I am usually sleeping; but if I wake up, it's like buzzing bees making mince meat of my mind flooding it with all my vulnerabilities, i.e. financial, find actives for grandkids coming for the weekend, fear of injury on trip, need to do’s before leaving on trip, shopping for trip, packing, and more. . . Finally I get up and pray in my spirit language for a short time then go back to bed. My mind calms down and I'm able to sleep.  

Once we claim Christ as our Lord and Savior, we have the victorious ability to use the authority of the mighty Name of Jesus:


Philippians 2:10 (NLV)
So when the name of Jesus is spoken,everyone in heaven and on earth and under the earth will bow down before Him.




It is a learning process. We find Scriptures like the one above teaching us how to operate in and under the auspices  of the Holy Spirit; how to call upon the name of Jesus and the power of His shed blood. You know, we do live in Jesus Kingdom, and living in Jesus’ Kingdom empowers us to act with His authority. Here is the Scripture that tells us we do live in The Kingdom of Jesus when we choose Jesus as our King of Kings!

Colossians 1:13 (AMPC)
[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself 
out of the control and the dominion of darkness 
and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love

We know where our true home is, now we just need to find out what our job is in this new home. Jesus, the King, will let us know; the the task is to be obedient to what He tells us to do. That leads us to a life of total fulfillment, not the cheap imitation satan wants us to believe in~ feeding our fleshly appetites will not bring lasting happiness. God’s ways of life will.
