Everyone has enemies. They come from all corners: in the physical, in the spiritual, in the mind and everywhere. And the one thing everyone likes to think of is: who will clear these enemies for me???
Have you ever found yourself asking this question?
Well, God knows what is around you, and who, and which powers are around you, and He has already done something about it!!!
However, the worst kind of enemy you can have is you. Because then no one will be able to help you out. For one, God is not your enemy, secondly, the Devil is already defeated, men are relative and are only used as pawns to further the purposes of the kingdom of darkness (meaning that once you deal with the kingdom of darkness, men will cooperate with you), and now we only have you remaining as a potential enemy to yourself!
Psa 110:1 The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.”
Psa 110:2 The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies!
Didi you hear that? The Word says, The Lord has sent forth the scepter of your strength, rule in the midst of your enemies.
The first thing that God says is ‘Sit at my right hand.’ In other words, take your position at the right hand of power. Understand who you are: You are royalty. You are a king and priest. You belong to the order of the Priesthood of Jesus, who is of the order of Melchizedek (whose name means King of righteousness). Your blood line is one of powerful kings and priests (unless you eat of my flesh and drink of my blood, you have no life in you); it is one of power, of ruler-ship, of dominion.
In the next part of the verse God says I want to make your enemies your footstool. Listen to me: Your enemies are not meant to be standing around, challenging and negotiating with you, no, they are meant to be under your feet!
Now, you need to understand that God who also destroys our enemies, will not remove some them, but, like he did for David, He will give you power over them. They will be present, they will see you, they will want to harm you, but they will be powerless to touch you.
In the realm of the Spirit, God has shown me His cover of protection is always around His children who obey Him. I have many times seen this ‘ring of fire’ around God’s people. If you are walking righteous with the Lord, you are already protected. Satan cannot touch you!
Sickness will not touch you. People may hate you but they can’t stop you either. Witchcraft powers and agents cannot stop you too. It says in the Word of God in the book of Numbers 23 that there is no enchantment against Israel, and no divination against Jacob. Whom God has blessed, you cannot curse.
You see, God said to His servant Abraham, whoever blesses you I will bless and who curses you I will curse. Therefore, anyone who picks a fight against you will only be doing so to his own detriment. The Lord, in defending His anointing on my life, spoke to me and said, ‘Whoever touches you will be squarely responsible for what happens to them.’
Now, to keep them in check every government needs some opposition members to watch and criticize what they are doing. When there is no one to keep you on your toes, you can easily veer off the way. This is one of the main reasons why Satan and his hordes are still on the earth. God has allowed them to be here.
Some of you who are reading this wouldn’t know how to pray, or fast, or attend church frequently, or serve in the ministry and so on, until the Devil had been given a chance to try you. So the attack that came against you was a bad thing, but you see how it actually brought you closer to God.
So understand it: Satan will not be removed from the earth, yet: because he is actually here to train your strength. He is allowed to be on the earth so you can exercise your power to rule over him.
The word says in the book of Ephesians 3 that by means of the church, God is now making known his manifold wisdom to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. Before, they thought they could oust God, but the Lord created another level of the God-kind of beings (we are created in His image), and is now using us to teach the kingdom of darkness a lesson.
Ouch! Even the least of us can command them and they will move!!! Sometimes, as I am ministering in deliverance, these powers will say, ‘Who are you?’ To which I will reply, ‘I am a servant of the Most High God.’ They will sometimes reply, ‘You little boy, do you know how long I have been around? I have been there for thousands of years. Do you think you can manage to overcome me?’ That sounds tough doesn’t it? But every time I commanded them, they had to leave, no matter how long they had tormented those families. What was happening? God was backing me up to set His people free. You have power over them!
Now, I want to draw your attention again to the truth that you are actually royalty. You are in power and dominion on the earth. There is no part of the earth which the Lord left out of your reach to dominate. For He has said, ‘All power has been given to me in heaven and on the earth. Therefore go… I am with you.’ In other words, ‘I am backing whatever you do in My name.’
As we know, royalty does not take orders from anyone, except from the power above them. Instead, they issue commands. That means that God wants you to begin commanding the powers which have been challenging you. He said, ‘Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatever you lose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.’ As you begin to exercise your authority on any matter, know that heaven is backing you up.
So if there is a power challenging you, I want you to know that God has already given you power over it. You can command sickness to go, you can command debts to disappear, you can command poverty to die, you can command occultists to let your family go, you can command dead things to live again, you can command provision to manifest, change in nations, and just about anything that is out of order you can call it back to shape.
When you are a ruler, you make decrees and they are followed; and God wants you to start commanding! Don’t just sit by and say, ‘Look at my situation, it is so sad. When will it change?’ No, arise with the scepter of power that you has been given to you and start making declarations. Heaven is waiting to back you up!
Hey, I decree it today: the head and not the tail; you are above and not beneath; you are the lender and not the borrower. I decree you are blessed beyond the curse. Every sickness and disease is leaving your body. I decree favor shall not depart from your house. I decree health to you and your family. I decree your children shall serve God. I decree your peace and joy will never be taken away. I decree your prayers will find answers. I decree your gifts will touch and bless nations. I decree you are an overcomer; every power assigned against you shall fall under your feet. I declare you are wealthy, anointed and walking in power in this generation, in Jesus name!
God bless you!
