THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS

Satan is already defeated ,Stay prayed up, and Stop Blaming the Devil! You are in the predicament ,you are in ,because of disobedience to God,so do as God says ,”If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land”, { 2 Chronicles  7:14}.

 Christians focus their energy on fighting Satan when we should be humbling ourselves before God. The  devil is not a problem , Jesus  whipped   his butt,over two thousand  years  ago,and give us back the power and authority   we lost,thus making  us more  than conquerors . 

So, When was the last time you ran a reality check on your perceptions of God’s Word? Too many believers embrace popular misunderstandings of what God has said rather than the truth. According to Thayer’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament, understanding God’s truth means your perceptions become aligned with God’s reality of the thing being perceived. One area in which the perceptions of believers do not line up with the truth relates to our understanding of how we are to deal with the devil. Many Christians believe we should order Satan around with great fervor, frequency and volume.

Satan cooperates with this deception, conceding victories whenever necessary to perpetuate the lie that God’s people need to battle him for everything God has promised them. This deception keeps earnest Christians too busy with Satan to focus on humbling and surrendering themselves to God.

But God is more concerned about the state of our souls than He is about the devil. He says in His Word, “‘If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves [their souls], and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways [of their souls], then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their [souls’] sin and heal their land’ ” (2 Chr. 7:14, NKJV). The Hebrew word for wicked (ways), ra, includes characteristics of being disagreeable and having an unhappy disposition.

God is telling us that what will bring about the healing of the land is His people’s turning away from wrong attitudes and self-centeredness. He does not say anything about warring with Satan to heal the land.

Daniel understood the need for humility and repentance. He prayed and confessed the corporate wrong agreement of God’s people when they were in captivity in Babylon: “We have sinned and dealt perversely and done wickedly and have rebelled, turning aside from Your commandments and ordinances…We have not earnestly begged for forgiveness and entreated the favor of the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities and have understanding and become wise in Your truth” (Dan. 9:5,13, The Amplified Bible).

The Israelites had been and still were actively entering into wrong agreements about what God was saying to them through His prophets. These wrong agreements had created “legal” grounds for Satan to establish a territorial dominion over them, controlled by the demonic prince of Persia. Wrong agreement always gives right of access to Satan’s workings.

Daniel knew that surrender and obedience were the solutions to the Israelites’ bondage. When he sought right agreement with God through confessing the sins of his people and repenting, God swiftly sent the archangels Gabriel and Michael to take out the prince of Persia. Note that God did not say Daniel or the Israelites needed to fight Satan over their bondage.
