It takes battle to take back your possession in life, ministry, marriage, career and family. It takes even greater battle to retain these possessions. One thing is to have your possession, another is to retain it. It is pertinent to know that some breakthroughs will not come until God’s judgment cuts off all oppositions. Also, it is worthy to note that the devil that fought your predecessors to a standstill is very much alive and ready to fight you.
Without battles, there would be no victory; and life on its own is full of battles.
Battle is a contention, strife or struggle over a particular thing of value. There must be parties to a battle, which principally are God and you on one side, and Satan and his agents on the other.
Victory on the other hand means conquest, to overcome, to prevail or to take charge. God has reserved victory solely for the righteous (John 3:6).
POWERS THAT WE CONTEND WITH IN BATTLE:
- Powers that set a limit to how far you can go in life (John 5:1-7).
- Powers that cut short testimonies (Judges 6 vs 1-7).
- Powers that make you go into error at the sight of your miracle (1 Samuel 12:1-35).
- Powers causing blessings to die in your hands.
- Powers that turn your helpers against you.
HOW TO CLAIM YOUR VICTORY?
- Trust in the Lord and in Him alone (Psalm 7:1).
- Examine yourself if you are a lawful captive; are there any properties belonging to the devil in your possession, such as characters, properties and covenants?
- Take a step to deliver yourself by declaring for Jesus through genuine repentance (2 Corinthians 7:10) (There were 34 new converts and 35 first timers).
- Prepare to declare the word of victory to yourself regularly.
- I decree and declare that every anti-progress spirit in my life that has placed a limit to how far I can go in life, be bound now! In the Name of Jesus.
- All powers revealing my secrets and progress to the enemies, begin to fail in the mighty Name of Jesus!
- Father, I decree all powers creating a limit in my life, business, marriage, career and education; I command you to loose me and let me go in the Name of Jesus.
- Every devil that has set a limitation to my life, progress, destiny and marriage; I command you to catch fire now in Jesus Name!
- Every chain the devil has used to tie me down, break by fire in Jesus Name!
- Every spirit of Saul that has made me do the wrong thing at the right time; every spirit of error that is manipulating my life; I command you to loose me and let me go!
- I decree and declare that no blessing would die in my hands again; whatever I touch with my hands will succeed, everything I touch will move forward and progress in Jesus Name.
