One thing I learned during the years I spent
in corporate environments, was never to step foot into the door of my workplace without first exercising the authority
given to me as a believer over the demonic forces waiting to "blindside" me through anyone they could find
who would co-operate with them.
Whenever the enemy successfully "blindsided" me my day would
be effectively ruined.
My peace was shattered and my mind was tormented by the barbed
words that found their mark and drove in deep.
Often my sleep would be disrupted and I could not enjoy things
that normally gave me great delight.
We must realize that God's enemy, Satan, is also
our enemy, and he is obsessed with making our lives miserable as well as neutralizing our effectiveness in every
A particular point of vulnerability is in the
I make a regular habit of binding any spirit (in Jesus name) who
is not the Holy Spirit or a ministering spirit from God from speaking or manifesting itself to me (through any person or medium
of communication) or to anyone else while they are in my presence (I do this verbally).
I didn't realize what an impact this was making even on those
around me until one day someone walked up to me and said, "you sure whipped that group into shape. They used to sit and gossip
and make snide remarks to each other all day long, and now they are getting along!"
I had not done anything--except pray... and, in
the name of Jesus, bind up the enemy.
we cannot bind up a person's own
hatred, jealousy, greed, ambition and covetousness. But we can bind devils from speaking to us through them.
When we do that, it is amazing how unkind remarks, meant to be
barbs, are deflected--never allowed to penetrate our spirit, and therefore are unable to steal our victory, joy,
peace or productivity.
