MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 9 November 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Comforting Authority
TOPIC: The Comforting Authority (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 9 November 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 10:18-22
MEMORY VERSE: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” – John 10:10
Spiritual warfare is defined as the activities of fighting a war of a peculiar nature. It is an aggressive, violent and unseen conflict or struggle. The aim of spiritual warfare is to recover that which was stolen, to protect ourselves from invasion and from being taken over by “strange powers”. Spiritual welfare is connected with the human spirit rather than the body or the physical. It is waging war against evil forces and invisible powers of darkness. It is pulling down strongholds. Spiritual warfare is a praying exercise to enforce our supremacy over terrestrial enemies.
In spiritual warfare, no one is excluded. Age, colour, continent, family, race or distances are not barriers and everybody is involved. The devil hates every Christian, and all he wants to do is destroy, kill and steal your joy as much as possible. The enemy uses the average Christian’s ignorance to his own advantage with the aim of causing troubles and orchestrating disasters. Ignorance is a terrible, defective weapon that leads to great defeat and outright failure in warfare. It prevents a person from accessing the various spiritual weapons and ability to appropriately utilise them. Ignorance gives the devil an edge over any Christian. Elijah knew what he had. Moses knew what he had, and our Lord Jesus Christ knew what He had, which made them all prevail in their endeavours because they all used it.
We need to fight and be victorious in our quest to enforce God’s Lordship over all creation. We fight so that the will of God be done on earth and to show our obedience to God. We fight to execute the judgement written by God against His enemies. We also fight to set the captives free and recover all that have been stolen and to enforce the reconciliation of all things to God. Remember, Jesus said, *”Greater works shall ye do”*. Therefore, knowing that you have the required relationship with God is recognising what you have and how to use it. It is knowing your right as a saint, knowing that you can deal with the enemy and its powers, and your ability to rule, to govern, to command and to dominate your environment. A General in the Nigerian Army will always comfort himself because of the authority given to him by the Nigerian government. Do not be frightened. It is high time you challenged the powers challenging God in your life.
IT IS THE SPIRIT OF FEAR THAT MAKE CHRISTIANS THINK THAT POWERS OF DARKNESS CAN DESTROY THEM.
I decree that your faith shall arise and swallow your fear and you shall be a terror against the kingdom of darkness.
1. Father, I thank You for giving me the power over the enemy, in the name of Jesus.
2. Power to exercise my authority over my oppressors, come upon my life, in the name of Jesus.
3. I will go to war as from today in the spirit of Elijah, in the name of Jesus.
4. Weapons of spiritual warfare, necessary for my battles, be released unto me now from God’s armoury, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every agent of darkness in charge of my troubles, wherever you are, die, in Jesus’ name.
6. By the authority in the name of Jesus, my troubles, give way and die, in the name of Jesus.
7. I receive the sword of fire, and I cut off the heads of all my oppressors now, in the name of Jesus.
