1. Authority in the name of Jesus:
If you've been standing there wringing you hands and worrying about what the devil is doing, it is time for you to put the devil under your feet. You have been given the power of attorney that enables you to use the powerful name of Jesus. A name that is above every name. (Phil 2:9,10) David says, "I have pursued mine enemies, and overtaken them...they are fallen under my feet."(Ps 18,37,38) Bind the evil spirits that are trying to destroy your home, your marriage, your finances, your church and your nation.
2. Power of the Holy Spirit:
Jesus said He casts out the demons by the power of the Spirit of God...(Mt 12:28) Jesus said, 'The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor...to set at liberty those who are oppressed" (Lk 4:18). God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him (Acts 10:38) The 'ability' to cast out the demons comes from the 'power' of the Holy Spirit. Therefore be filled with the Holy Spirit. You will be able to cast the demons out.
3. The blood of Jesus, Word of our testimony and the willingness to fight:
And they overcame the enemy by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. (Rev 12:11). We have to plead the blood over our situation. Watch the words that come out of your mouth. You cannot talk defeat and expect victory. You should have the 'bull dog' faith. Never give up.
4. Faith-filled prayer and fasting:
When a father brought his son who was an epileptic, to the disciples, they could not cure him. The boy was then brought to Jesus. Jesus rebuked the demon (vs. 18) and the boy was cured the very same hour. (Matt 17:15-21) When asked the reason, Jesus said,'This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting. (Vs. 21) Fasting should become your lifestyle. This passage also shows that the disciples did not have the faith. Jesus says, O faithless and perverse generation (vs. 17)
May your life be a 'victorious Christian life' in Jesus' name. Amen.
