Scripture Reading: Prov 18:21; Isaiah 54 :17
In yesterday’s prayer and fasting blog, we talked about the subversive actions of Satan and his agents as they disrupt, delay, destroy and attack a person through demonic activities that manifest as strongholds.
As we said, the main objective of these strongholds, is to undermine your destiny by using tactics like consistent or persistent delays, disruptions, setbacks, abortion, death, destruction, misunderstandings, disfavour or confusion, to hinder your progress towards the fulfilment of God’s will for your life.
We also saw how we can give the enemy a “legal right” to establish his strongholds in our lives through open doors that we present to him.
Sometimes, the fastest and most effective weapon of sabotage that the enemy uses against believers is words.
This is a usual avenue through which the enemy’s strongholds can be established and operate in our lives without us realising it!
Jezebel succeeded in sabotaging Elijah’s destiny not by any show of might, but by simply sending threatening words to Elijah – The mighty Prophet of God that had just witnessed an awesome demonstration of the power of God withered as a consequence of the words that he had heard!
Dear friend, God is alerting you today, to the wiles of the enemy to sabotage your destiny that is as subtle as it is dangerous — WORDS!
What Are You Saying?
The words that you hear, the words that you meditate on, the words that you believe and eventually confess, can become a stronghold that the enemy can use to scupper your destiny!
“If the enemy can sabotage your words, he can sabotage your thoughts; if he can sabotage your thoughts, he can sabotage your vision, if he can sabotage your vision, he can sabotage your destiny”.
At the point of waiting, at the place of delay, at the point of your greatest discomfort and at the pressure points in your life, is when the enemy tries to sow the words of sabotage into your heart, and establishing the strongholds of doubt, unbelief and fear.
This can be by way of thoughts that are formed in your mind, or words that people will speak to you. That’s why the bible enjoined you to: “Guard your heart with all diligence” and to “Take heed how you hear….”
What words have you been thinking or speaking that are breeding fear, anxiety, confusion, discouragement, distraction and even tiredness in your heart?
If you are not careful, those words could be the stronghold — the seed of destruction that the enemy has planted to derail your destiny!
Satan’s plan is to get you to think his word, believe the word, then speak the word and then you begin to see what you speak manifest — He has succeeded in sabotaging your destiny by making you to believe his lies.
Watch Your Tongue!
Be careful about the words that you speak in this season; be careful about the words that you pronounce over yourself or over your destiny. Do not allow yourself to be used by the enemy as an adversary of the purpose of God, to sabotage your own destiny. Do not be ensnared by the words of your own mouth!
If you do not understand what is happening in your life or situation, Start declaring the word that God has spoken into that situation…it is best for you to pray what you want to see, rather than give life to what you are seeing or what the enemy would have you say.
As the bible tells us in 2Cor 10:4-5
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…”
Continue to declare His promises over your life, over your family and over the church. What He said He will do, He will establish. His promises concerning you will not be sabotaged nor aborted in the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.
- No weapon that is fashioned against me shall prosper. In the Name Of Jesus, I condemn every tongue that is risen in judgement against me, my family, my church and our destinies.
- My life is hid with Christ in God. My destiny is secured in the Faithfulness of God’s word concerning my life.
- My purpose is a sure testimony that is complete and perfect in accordance with God’s plans for my life.
- Every word that has been spoken by people, or that I have spoken to sabotage my destiny is hereby annulled with immediate effect in Jesus’s Name.
- I remove myself, my family and my church from every demonic influence that has sabotaged our progress through words that have ensured us, in Jesus Name.
- I command a restoration of God’s timing and order in alignment with His master plan for my life, my family and the church in Jesus’s Name.
