Spiritual Warfare: 'Spoken Bindings Are a Weapon Against Enemies'

God's Power for Our Battles — Monday, February 5, 2024

But if I by the Spirit of God cast out demons, then indeed the kingdom of God is come upon you. Or how can anyone enter into the house of the strong man and plunder his goods, unless first he bind the strong man? and then he will plunder his house.
— Matthew 12:28-29 Darby

Today's Prayer

Lord, You expelled demons throughout Your ministry. Based on the evil I see around me, it seems like demons are also very active today. Help me to play my part in removing them and teaching others to do the same so we can advance Your Kingdom. Remind me that I can bind the enemy with the words I say with the power in the holy name of Jesus Christ, Your only Son. Use me in this to Your glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
