Challenging Outside Control
In Romans 1 : 16, the Apostle Paul writes,
'For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: because it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes; to the Jew first and also to the Greek.'
Further on, in chapter 10 : 13 he says,
'For whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.'
The words SALVATION and SAVED when fully expressed mean deliverance, safety, preservation, healing, soundness.
Therefore, our salvation includes at least these five aspects. Yet many Christians live as though some of these were lacking in the salvation which they received when they believed in the Lord Jesus Christ.
It is our right as Christians to take back from our enemy any area of our lives which he has sought to dominate in the past. This is an active claiming of all that our Father has provided for us in 'so great salvation' (Hebrews 2 : 3), and it requires an offensive attitude towards the enemy by the believer whose life is adversely affected.
The right attitude is one that might be taken towards a bully, when you discover that you do not have to put up with the bullying any more.
Some may say that they are actively professing their faith and declaring the promises of God over their lives, and that ought to be enough. Those things are very necessary, but many times they may not dislodge chronic, deep-seated invasions of the enemy in the lives of God's people.
This kind of prayer requires the attitude of a WARRIOR. There is nothing soft or gentle about this warfare prayer and each Christian has to make up his mind for himself when it is time to engage the enemy of our souls, and take possession of the areas of his/her life that have been outside of his/her control.
Father, help me to develop the attitude of a Warrior, so You can teach me how to gain victory,
in Jesus' name,
Hope we can get together again tomorrow, God willing.
Meanwhile, have a great day walking with the Lord!
