Bursting with Blessings

How To Defend Against Spiritual Warfare: Devotional 1 John 2:13

You are an overcomer!

You overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony (Revelation 12:11).

Not many of us want to mention satan, the enemy of our souls, the destroyer of our harvests of work.  We may have defeated him from having our souls when we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior but we need to daily take back the territory he has of ours--our mindset, our past hurts, our future blessings.

We need to know that each day is a battle in the spiritual realm and a battle for the enemy to keep the territory he has taken and to try and take more of it--your peace, love, joy, and spiritual growth.

We want our tents enlarged and our territory expanded (1 Chronicles 4:10 Prayer of Jabez).  We want prosperity, protection, and mercy to flow in abundance until our vats/bank accounts run over.

Do you work, study, speak, and pray to bring forth what you want for your life?

Today let's cultivate a daily prayer that protects us spiritually and grows our territory of spiritual and worldly blessings. Let's be intentional of our daily scripture reading for it enlarges the understanding of our awesome God.  Let's speak as the beloved child of God that we are and not as a worldly lost traveler whose soul isn't saved.

*Need help growing your understanding of your worth? How to create positive habits, and your ability to bring peace and blessings into your home with God? Let's talk: burstingwithblessings@virg.org.

Let's pray: Dear Lord God Almighty, we humbly come before You with thanks and praise.  We thank You for saving us, loving us, and wanting our spiritual growth and prosperity.

Lord please help us to cultivate a daily understanding of Your word, will, and way for our lives.

Please rebuke the evil one from our harvest of spiritual growth.  Please cause the enemy to flee in seven different directions away from us and cause what the enemy and locust has eaten and destroyed to be returned to us seven thousand fold.

Lord cause our minds to pray out loud against the schemes of enemy and to use Your Holy word to rebuke his spiritual warfare against us.

Please surround us with Your hedges of protection, dispatching the angels to guard us so that we don't come under attack from the evil one, and keep us under Your pinions of protection all the days of our lives (Psalm 91).

We sing praises of thanks and love to Your name, now and forever, Amen and Amen!
