‘to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places, according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.” Ephesians 3:10-12 NKJV

About a year ago I remember waiting patiently in the line at the bank, when my turn came I approached the teller, he said, “How’s your day treating you?” I immediately recognized how significant that question was and how key it was as to how I would answer. I answered, “My day is treating me exactly how I ordered it to this morning in prayer.” I continued, “I don’t allow the day to treat or offer me what it desires but I align my day according to God’s divine order first thing every morning by speaking what I will see and experience in that day.” I know that was a lot, and probably blew the bank tellers mind (or he just thought I was crazy), but the enemy loves to send us opportunities to speak contrary to faith. When we are not prepared or equipped with God’s Word for answers we will answer like any other person that does not know Jesus, waiting to complete a transaction, and are simply allowing the day to dictate their destiny. Our destiny is set, it is written, and we must war for it… DAILY.

Every day is a blessing. Every day we must enforce the victory we already have. Each day we must put principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and spiritual host of wickedness in heavenly places... in their place. The word of God shares in Matthew 6:34(b), …sufficient for each day is its own trouble. Therefore, if we just get comfortable with the blessing of the day and choose not to war (and I’d say early before the busy-ness of the day begins - before we leave our homes) we will welcome whatever the day offers. When we do this, we’ll find ourselves warring mid-day, frustrated, distracted, upset with others, and in the night season un-equipped with feelings of defeat along with the deception that we are powerless. SO NOT TRUE!

There is an adversary (who is real) called the devil who presents death - instead of life, cursing - instead of blessing to those whom he may. His time is short on this earth and his strategies to get the born-again believer out of faith are at a rapid high. We are admonished in 1 Peter 5:8 (NKJV), “to be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” This means that there are some he won’t even bother. I’m pretty sure it’s those who put him and his cohorts in their place early each day and give him no room throughout their day or night season. Basically, it’s those who are not ignorant of his device’s. Those who have chosen not to just sit around and wait for trouble, but those who will use their God-given dominion, authority, and power of words to enforce what Jesus has already done on our behalf (I John 3:8).

It’s time to war in the spirit of Elijah and Jehu!

He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” Luke 1:17 NKJV

The anointing (God’s) upon Elijah changed an entire nation even during darkness. We must understand that when we war (specifically in the spirit) we intercede not only for our lives, but also for the destiny of others. Elijah was used to war and prepare the way, just like John the Baptist, for the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ – the soon coming King. His ‘obedience’ was key to fulfilling his destiny and paving the way for others to fulfill theirs. God’s fire comes with His anointing and Elijah warred out of the fire of God. We are anointed and when we war we release the fire of God to demolish anything burning or stirring up that’s not like God or Heaven. Jehu destroyed Jezebel and Ahab – rebellious spirits that try to overthrow and destroy prophets and remove their kingship. These spirits linger with the assignment of destroying true prophets sent by God to establish the kingdom wherever they have been positioned – home, workplace, business, and/or a ministry.

We are victors in battle.
