Spiritual Battle


This Bible devotion contains two secret words

that will propel you to victory in any spiritual battle that you face.

~


When you speak these two Power Words out loud,

they begin to transform your life.

_________


We begin with Isaiah 14:12-15 in the New King James Version.

This passage is about Lucifer's rebellion against God.

Lucifer is the one we now call Satan.

~ ~

As you read the passage,

see if you can pick out the two Power Words

that Satan used to establish his rebellion against God.

~


“How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest side of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High. Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.”


Did you catch the two power words that Lucifer used to seal his determination against God?


They are the words

“I will.”


Lucifer said: I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest side of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.

Lucifer set his determination against God with the words “I will.”

Lucifer used those two power words to rebel against God's will.


After I discovered what Lucifer did, I decided to use those power words to seal my allegiance to God. I now use those words to renew my mind and reaffirm my will to follow God's will.


Those two words are powerful weapons

that I can use in every spiritual battle.

________

Exactly how do I use the power words

for a spiritual battle?


I take note of what I want more of in my life, and then

I make “I will” statements.


“I will” statements are powerful when I say them in my heart, but they are even more powerful when I say them out ...loud.


So I regularly say them out... loud.


My “I will” statements propel me to become more like Jesus.


I call my “I will” statements: My Proclamations.


I regularly speak out ...loud my proclamations.

Those proclamations renew my mind and set my determination

to follow God.


Another vital part of my plan is to also speak out loud Bible verses that reinforce the area that I am working on in my life.


Steps to use Proclamations in a spiritual battle:


Step one is

  • Take note of the things that seem hard for me in my daily life.

Step Two

  • Make proclamations about the subject area I am working on, and then I speak them out... loud regularly.

Step Three

  • Find one or more Bible verses that I say out... loud regularly on the subject area I am working on.


I'll give an example:

I want to be a gentle and kind person. Sometimes it is a challenge for me to talk in a gentle way when I am in a hurry. So I make “I will” statements.

For example, I say, “I will be gentle and kind even when I am in a hurry.”

Then I find a Bible verse to help me renew my mind. The word of God is powerful.

Sample Bible Verse

Galatians 5:22

“When the Holy Spirit controls our lives he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”


Speaking out... loud that verse helps me to renew my mind.

I have used that verse to help increase my motivation and determination for slowing down and being kind.


I love God. I want to do whatever God asks of me. I want to obey him.


Proclamations help me to obey God. They help me renew my mind.

Proclamations help me gain victory in every spiritual battle.


Proclamations can get you stirred up

to become the best

you can be!


Note we have several Bible devotions about Proclamations.
