The devil has been able to cause problems, sadness, and much pain in our life, because we tend to pray against the person that has caused the pain, instead of praying against the spirit that control them.
Ephesians 6:12 says, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
We spend so much time praying that our spouse, children, boss, and love ones will change their ways. When you should pray against the sprit that controls them- the devil.
We spend time praying that the lack in our life will change with a financial breakthrough, or a new job. But you don’t realize that if you had a million dollars, you would lose it, because the problem is the spirit that causes the lack- the devil.
Some people really think that if they move away things will change, but baby you can move to Paris, and that spirit will follow you there, and you will still have the same problems.
Some of you are dealing with the same problems over and over again, because you are praying against the person, (flesh, and blood), instead of the spirit that Ephesians 6:12 speaks of.
It’s like praying that your mail man would stop delivering your mail in the manner he/she does, instead of the spirit that controls him- the US Postal Service.
Instead of focusing on the coward behind all of this, we focus on the person who is being controlled by a spirit, thus the reason our prayers don’t bring about change.
