A couple weeks back, one of our authors, Heidi Lynn, wrote an article that I found very inspirational. The article was entitled, “3 Step Formula To Beat The Devil.” The article highlighted the following 3 steps:
1. Redemption (Psa 103:12)
2. Rejuvenation (Isa 41:10)
3. Release (Phil 4:9)
I would encourage you to take a few minutes and check out her article if you haven’t already. I would also like to write on this subject, and I’m going to look at four factors that will whoop any demon. I would also like to make a note that I’m in complete agreement with Heidi’s position on this and a lot of what I’m going to say is just reiterating what she has already said. So here we go!
The first way to whoop a demon is to share what the word of God says about a matter. Demons are liars and Satan is known as the “father of lies.” When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness he easily parried Satan’s attacks with three “It is written…” statements. Each statement was from the Old Testament portion of God’s word and Satan had no choice but to eventually flee since he could not argue with the Truth (Matt 4:1-11).
The next wave of your attack builds on the last. It involves prayer and sharing scripture. When you’re praying, remember you’re speaking to the Creator of the universe and He demands faith if you want to please Him (Heb 11:6). God knows his promises, but remind Him of them anyway. For example, if the demon is causing physical damage, remind the Lord that He has said that by His stripes we are healed (Isa 53:5). If God promised it, it’s going to happen.
We are now going to build on the previous step by declaring. You can do this during prayer or you can just declare out loud. Declaring God’s will is an act of faith and God will honor it. Declare Satan defeated, declare healing, declare God’s provision, and so on. Remember, we not only have the power to bind Satan and his minions (Matt 12:29), but we have the power to release mighty things in Christ’s name as well (Matt 18:18).
If you’ve followed the past 3 steps and you’ve gotten rid of the demon(s), keep in mind that the battle is not over yet. The demon(s) will try to return with more demons, and even more wicked ones than you were dealing with to begin with. Their task at hand is to wreak more havoc than before and reclaim what they believe is their home (Matt 12:43-45). To successfully evict these spiritual pests, you need to fill yourself and your life with things of God. That way there is no room for them, and you’re living in accordance with God’s will.
So there you have it. Four, hopefully easy, steps to whoop any demon(s) that may be bothering you. Each step builds on the previous, and by time you get to the last, it’s just a matter of replacing the demon(s) with things of God. I would also encourage you once again to read Heidi’s article on the “3 Step Formula To Beat the Devil.” Thank you for reading and God bless.
What are some ways you can implement these steps into your life?
