40 Days of Prayer – Spiritual Warfare – Prayer Focus: Dealing With Conflict
When we have endured insult and persecution it is natural to want to defend ourselves and our reputations. However, Philippians 2:7, says that Yeshua (Jesus) was a man of “NO REPUTATION.”
In fact, when Yeshua was brought before Herod, He did not answer the indictments against Him. Yeshua did not argue His point or defend Himself. Likewise, when we are persecuted, accused, or insulted… not every insult deserves an answer.
Let Yeshua answer for you… Let the LORD defend you. Let the LORD take up your case. Let the LORD put His WORD against the enemy’s word.
We are end-time saints. It is as if some serious end-time demons have been released upon society. People are easily offended and hard to get along with. We are going to suffer persecution. The enemy is going to do everything he can to discourage our walk with God.
People will often hate us for no reason. Get accustomed to it! Expect resistance Mighty Warriors! Strap on your spiritual armor and report to duty says the Lord. The battle is not ours – it’s the LORDs! So kick it in cruise… relax… Give the pain to God…. Don’t nurse it…. Don’t rehearse it…. JUST PRAY.
Jesus said in John 15:18, “If the world hates you, they hated me first.” Who wants to be hated? Who doesn’t want to be loved and respected by their peers? However, if we want to be used by God, we have to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to every voice – accept His voice.
We must never be inspired by the praises of men nor crumble from their insults. We must set our faces like flint on God alone – lifting everything to God in prayer.
A Token For His Good
“Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast helped me, and comforted me.”
- When the Blood of Yeshua speaks for you, the Lord will REDEEM you and show you to be a token for His good…
- When the Blood of Yeshua speaks for you, He will prove every negative word spoken against you to be in the wrong…
- When the Blood of Yeshua speaks for you, He will cause you to outlive every lie of the enemy. When the Blood of Jesus speaks for you, He will SILENCE all your accusers…
“Sovereign LORD, my strong deliverer, you shield my head in the day of battle.”
“The BLOOD of Jesus speaks better things than that of Able. “
Father, we will allow the Blood of Yeshua to speak for us today! Lord, I forgive those who have offended me and I choose to not hold on to or harbor offense. I ask You to give me an unoffendable and childlike heart.
I decree by the Blood of Yeshua that every demonic label that has been placed on our lives to limit our progress is ERASED in Yeshua’s name!
In the name of Yeshua, I appropriate the redemptive power of Your shed Blood to silence the voice of the accuser and I declare this day that every hand that has risen to persecute the children God will have to one day beg our pardon – In Yeshua’s name! In Yeshua’s name, I destroy every fiery dart that the enemy has projected to sabotage our destines, our families, our finances, our ministries, our health, our peace, our minds, and all that pertains to us in the Mighty name of JESUS.
Let’s be mindful how we respond to situations. Let’s choose our words carefully and season our words with love. Let’s choose to walk in love with others. The enemy cannot operate where there is love.
