The Winning Life 3- Winning Strategies 1- Identify The Enemy

 

 

 

Identification is vital to success.  Identification means being able to clarify, distinguish, make certain what or where your target, direction and purpose is.  In wars, the enemy often uses deception, camouflage to confuse, distract and lead you astray.  Having the ability to see through the deception of the opposition is the key to winning battles!

 

 

1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 

 

 

The Bible tells us that there is ONLY ONE enemy- the devil!  He is the master mind behind all the schemes of destruction.  He is the tormentor of all mankind!  Jesus calls him the ruler of this world, the apostle Paul called him, the prince of the power of the air; if you defeat him, you defeat all, you win all your battles!

 

So do not go about wasting your resources, energy, emotions fighting your spouse, children, boss, friends and colleages, fight ONLY the devil!  Fight in the spirit not in the flesh, in the supernatural, not the natural!

 

No matter what situation you are in, identify where the devil’s foothold is; where is he residing?  What is his major occupation in the matter, situation or relationship?  Is it offence, dejection, insecurity, sickness, superstition, fear, greed, careless living or laziness?  Then attack him with the Word of God which is the Sword Of The Spirit.

 

 

 

Eph 6:17 the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God 

 

 

Heb 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 

 

 

The Word will cut off the devils that are attached to your mind, emotions and will.  Demons build strongholds in the mind with the purpose of influencing your thoughts, to take after his thinking pattern, his mind set; of poisoning your feelings so that they become toxic and destructive to you and others.  Devils also work to undermine the strength of your will to bring about a nervous breakdown, a heart attack or harden it to result in a malicious stubbornness against God!  

 

But God has given us the Master Key against Lucifer, which is:-

 

Jam 4:7 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

The Winning Life 2- The Winning Wisdom

 
Pro 4:7-9
Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore, get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you.” 
 
God has ordained that the battles of our life must be won by strategies and not brute forces.  The Bible is our warfare manual that always brings victory when applied.  Our eternal victory over satanic forces is to be obtained through the application of the Word, not by the arms of the flesh!  Divine wisdom is to release the spiritual victory which has been purchased by Jesus Christ on earth, to defeat what is demonic with angelic, temporary with eternity, earthly with heavenly!
 
Job 28:7-13  
That path no bird knows, Nor has the falcon's eye seen it. The proud lions have not trodden it, Nor has the fierce lion passed over it. He puts his hand on the flint; He overturns the mountains at the roots. He cuts out channels in the rocks, And his eye sees every precious thing. He dams up the streams from trickling; What is hidden he brings forth to light. “But where can wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding? Man does not know its value, Nor is it found in the land of the living. 
 
That is the path of Divine Wisdom, Heavenly Wisdom, not found in the place of men but the Word of God!  The Word has the power to expose the traps of the devil, to abort the snares of the wicked, to discern the lies of the deceiver, to undo the yoke of the slave-driver!
 
Isa 43:1-2
 “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.
 
Fear is detrimental to success!  Fear is an enemy never a friend.  God’s desire is that we “fear not”, for He is with us through all the challenges of life and nothing shall by any means hurt us!  You shall come out a champion, a victor!  Amen!

The Winning Life 1- By My Spirit saith the Lord of Hosts
1Jo 5:4  For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith
The Christian race is accompanied by warfare.  It is normal as breathing to our existence.  The good news is that they are triumphant, victorious wars, taking us to a higher ground every time!
2Co 2:14  Now thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.
We are God’s anointed ones, Christians, His fragrance; everywhere we go we emanate his winning fragrance!  It is the presence of the Holy Spirit, His anointing, His holy oil that brings us the victory.  His anointing that destroys every yoke sets free every captive! 
God recognises opposition as real; His will is for us to be strong against them.  He calls you more than a conqueror, an overcomer!  So, you should not be sighing and complaining whenever there is a need to fight but rather see it as an opportunity to demonstrate your strength and ordained victory!
However, success is not automatic.  One has to study to win, train to triumph.  Knowledge and experience are both vital ingredients to winning battles!  God has called and anointed us to work with Him, progressively and continually!  He is our Father and General, He is interested in raising up winning children and warriors!  The difference between success and failure is Wisdom.  Wisdom is the deciding factor when it comes to winning or losing, health or sickness, wealth or poverty! Spiritual Warfare is real and only Divine Wisdom can guarantee continued victory all the way from earth to heaven!  How is it so?  Wars must be won by strategies not brutal strength nor sheer will power.  The Holy Spirit is the Wonderful Counsellor!
Zechariah 4:6
So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts.

Successful Warfare Strategies 4-  Wise Counsellors With Winning Strategies

Pro 12:15
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkens unto counsel is wise. 
The devil’s strategy is to get people to self-destroy.  He uses one’s weaknesses against himself, puts him to pride, shame, failure and destruction.  The devil works to seclude him from wise and godly counsels; exclude him from intercessory prayers so as to ruin him.  Whenever you find yourself hearing a voice that tells you to withdraw, separate and seclude yourself from others, because you are better or worse than others; beware, that is the devil attacking you!  Rebuke that demonic impression and call on a Christian elder to pray for and with you!  Breaking that seclusion is already Victory!
Pro 11:14/ 24:6
..and in multitude of counsellors there is safety. 
A wise president is not only wise in himself but he purposefully surrounds himself with wise counsellors.  God believes in team work, mutual protection, collective efforts and corporate blessings!  It is wise to surround yourself with godly people who are different to you in natural expertise, skills and talents.  It is always good to complement one another for doing God’s assignments!
The antidote to reacting to a situation, a temptation, a provocation is to listen to another mature Christian; even Moses listened to his Father in law!  The Light of Understanding will break the spell of demonic thoughts and sets the captives free!
Pro 24:6
For by wise counsel you shall make your war:  
Est 4:13-14
This was Mordecai's reply to Esther: "Do you think you will escape there in the palace when all other Jews are killed? If you keep quiet at a time like this, God will deliver the Jews from some other source, but you and your relatives will die; what's more, who can say but that God has brought you into the palace for just such a time as this?" 
Mordecai’s word enlightens her to locate and position herself together with her people and above the devil!  He says God will deliver the Jews, that is, victory is for sure, but will you be the chosen vessel, the channel for it to take place!

Successful Warfare Strategies 3-  Raised Up In The Word By The Holy Ghost

Est 2:7
This man ( Mordecai )Est 2:5 had a beautiful and lovely young cousin, Hadassah (also called Esther), whose father and mother were dead, and whom he had adopted into his family and raised as his own daughter. 
Once we have been born again, we must be Raised Up as the Lord’s Own!  A baby just born and not fed nor raised is heading for an early grave!  An artificial baby formula is not God’s invention!  Babies must feed on the mother’s milk for healthy growth!
1Pe 2:2
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that you may grow thereby
Too many people make the mistake of taking health for granted until sickness comes!  Building health is the perfect formula against sickness!  If we do not want to react, to fall into the devil’s traps and snares, then we must build up our spiritual health!
Psa 119:107
I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O Lord, according unto Your word. 
The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, who has been raising you up: nurturing, teaching, mentoring and providing for you; will, during those tough and pressing times, speak to and quicken you to make the right choices against evil!  
Est 2:20
Esther still hadn't told anyone she was a Jewess, for she was still following Mordecai's orders, just as she had in his home. 
Mordecai’s words and values have been internalised by Esther!  It was not lip service but values, priorities, choices built on the inside directing her from within!  
1Pe 1:6-7
… though now for a season, if need be, you are in heaviness through manifold temptations..
A testing time will always have an end to it.  Jesus will always show up with His provision of grace and mercy!  The devil does not last but God does!  Tenacity, Perseverance and Relentlessness are powerful qualities of a champion warrior!  Our heavenly Father raises up strong children, he raises up warriors not weaklings!  The Word and the Holy Spirit will build muscles in us during the tough times!  The honour and the rewards of a champion are Yours, for you have been raised up by the Holy Spirit Himself!
