Declarations of War part two

Ephesians 6:11 “Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all the strategies and the deceits of the devil”. I declare that I walk in the discernment and wisdom of God. My spirit is in tune with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is leading me into all truth.

I know the truth and the truth sets me free. I am free. The Holy Spirit and my spirit speak the truth to my mind and that is where my peace comes from. I do not go by what my mind; feelings or emotions tell me. I go by what the word of God says. I go by what the Holy Spirit is speaking. I listen to my heart!

My heart tells me the truth. My mind will and emotions you submit to my spirit man who is submitted to the Holy Spirit. I discern all the traps of the enemy today. The Lord delivers me from every one. I do not get stuck today. I don’t listen to fear. I don’t listen to lies. I am not moved one bit by any of that.

I am confidant in who I am in Christ. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I am pure. I do not waiver. I take my stand and refuse to back down. I am not afraid of the enemy. I see him for what he is a deceiver. Fear is false evidence appearing real and it no longer controls my life. I choose life today. I choose the truth.

I choose mercy, grace, and peace. I speak to my mind and I command you not to get stuck in old thought patterns of bondage and fear. You are free. My spirit discerns the truth and I believe it.  I live by faith today. I choose to believe I am free. I choose to trust God. I do not look back.

I only look forward. I forget those things that are behind me and press toward the mark of the high call in Christ Jesus. I have resolve. I have closure in all areas of my life. I do not waiver. I do not go back and forth. I know the truth and I stand on that truth. I am free!
