This afternoon a friend of mine was praying for me over the phone. It was a powerful prayer of decreeing and declaring miracles over my life and I sensed the anointing of God as she was releasing faith filled words. Suddenly I had a strange sense of a voice from the kingdom of darkness saying – “I am not finished with you yet.” I thought about this for a few seconds but then the presence of God flooded my body and the Holy Spirit spoke to me in a still small voice saying, “I Am not finished with you yet”. He confirmed this word with the scripture Jeremiah 29:11. His voice was gentle but strong. It was not commanding or forceful but filled with love and compassion.
The Lord is showing me that many of you are listening to the voice of the enemy and it is bringing fear and torment into your life. There are numerous voices in the world that vie for your attention throughout the day. They come in mere thoughts and images in your minds. They come with enticement and temptations. I remember a cartoon that seemed silly at the time, but when I think about it now, it was actually profound. In this cartoon there was a person who had a little angel sitting on one shoulder telling them to do the right thing, and a little devil sitting on the other shoulder persuading them to do bad things. That is a great metaphor of what is actually taking place in the spirit realm. Jesus will never lead you in the wrong direction. The Holy Spirit is your comforter.
Ignore the Enemy’s Voice and Lies
The Lord says; don’t submit to the voices that bring defeat and confusion, but listen for the voice of truth. I have given you ears to hear and I speak with clarity. My voice will bring peace and it will carry My presence. It will always glorify Jesus for who He is and what He has done for you. It will release healing and it will bring favor. Don’t allow your emotions to become entangled with thoughts of failure and defeat but allow Me to release My presence into every situation.
You were once in the kingdom of darkness but now you are the light of the world. The enemy has trained you to fight well when you were in his camp, but now is the time to take those same weapons of warfare and use them against him. I have given you authority over powers, principalities, rulers of darkness and wicked spirits in heavenly places. I have put My word in your mouth and have given you dominion to decree and declare what is rightfully yours. Your words have authority to call things into existence and transform atmospheres. The powers of darkness will have to obey and submit as you speak My word.
Do not submit to the lies of the enemy about your future. I Am your healer, I Am your provider, I Am your deliverer, I Am the God of your destiny and I Am with you in the fire of affliction. Rejoice at all times and know that all that I have promised to you will come to pass. When the voices of darkness try to rise up against you in intimidation and accusation, know that your victory is assured. I will watch over My word to perform it says the Lord.
Jeremiah 1:9-10 Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant.”
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
2 Corinthians 10:5 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.
