KEYS TO OVERCOMING THE ENEMY AND POSSESSING THE PROMISES OF GOD

****************************************************************************************************

1.BESEECHING

There is a determined prayer that will bring God’s blessing. Jacob prayed ’I will not let you go unless you bless me’. Our prayers must be such importunate and desperate petitions. God looks at our hearts and when we pray and seek His blessings with our whole heart He will respond to our cry and shower His abundant blessings in our life. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Let us seek God with our whole heart and receive His blessings in our life

Genesis 32:26

So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak.

When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob’s hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man.

Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.” But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.”

The man asked him, “What is your name?” “Jacob,” he answered.

Then the man said, “Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel,because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome.”

Isaiah 62:6-7

I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest,

and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.

Ezekiel 36:33-38

" ’This is what the Sovereign LORD says: On the day I cleanse you from all your sins, I will resettle your towns, and the ruins will be rebuilt.

The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it.

They will say, "This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited."

Then the nations around you that remain will know that I the LORD have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.’

"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Once again I will yield to the plea of the house of Israel and do this for them: I will make their people as numerous as sheep,

as numerous as the flocks for offerings at Jerusalem during her appointed feasts. So will the ruined cities be filled with flocks of people. Then they will know that I am the LORD."

Luke 18:7-8

And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?

I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"

Hebrews 5:7

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.

1 Timothy 1:18

Timothy, my son, I am giving you this command in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by recalling them you may fight the battle well,

2.FORCING

The Kingdom of God suffers violence and the violent take it by force.In the Old testament when the people of Israel reached the promised Land they found that it was occupied by the enemy.They had to drive out the enemy by force before they could enjoy the promised land. The devil occupies the promises that God has given to us. We wonder why we are not enjoying the promises God has given to us.It is because the devil is preventing us from enjoying God’s blessings.We must force the devil out of the territory that God has given to us and enjoy Gods’s abundant blessings.

Matthew 11:12

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

3.WRESTLING

Apostle Paul says that we wrestle against spiritual forces of evil.There is an intense spiritual warfare going on in the heavenlies that affect the destinies of nations , families and individuals. If we want success in our endeavours we cannot avoid these spiritual conflicts. Wrestling is a close battle where two contestants struggle in close contact.The key to a breakthrough in our life and labour is to overpower and defeat the spiritual forces that oppose us.
