If you don’t know when the enemy is talking to you, how are you going to know when to fight it? Or if you can’t recognize when they are talking to you, how are you going to recognize when they are trying to get back in? God will many times make us defeat the demons while they are inside of us. The Lord will delay your deliverance sometimes so you will know how to fight and be able to stay free after you receive freedom. Passive warriors rarely win battles.
Take these patterns one by one, and root them out of your life. Go to work on these areas and reclaim your life. Reclaim your mind, will, emotions, finances, and your relationships with other people. Then get prayer for deliverance. The demons involved are spirits of family destruction. Ask the Lord to expose them and how they are working in your life so that you can have a life of plenty again. You can have your life restored. The Lord wants to set you free.
Drugs and alcohol leave residues in your body which you can ask the Lord to cleanse in Jesus Name.
Father in Jesus Name I receive cleansing of all alcohol or drug residues that are left in my body. I purge my organs and I decree restoration to them. I declare that my mind, my intestines, my liver, my pancreas, my stomach, and all of the organs, glands, tissues and membranes that were touched, affected or destroyed by alcohol are healed in Jesus name! AMEN.
The prolonged used of alcohol also causes the blood vessels in the nose to burst. Have you ever seen the nose of a full blown alcoholic? It becomes very bulbous. The same thing happens to the eyes. The redness of the eyes, and enlarged nose are the tiny blood vessels bursting. The effects of alcohol on the blood are well known. People who have been drinking and then cut themselves, such as a fight or an accident, usually bleed profusely. This is because the blood has been thinned and will not clot as quickly. You can declare healing in this.
How many great men of God would have utilized the deliverance message in their ministry if they had been able to see deliverance in the scriptures? I choose to have my eyesight, my family, my finances, and I am not going to let the devil take it.
Other areas that I encourage you to attack and get prayer are: Arrested development, Shame, And the mind with no soundness.
These are all categories that are associated with alcohol.
Will freedom come over night? God can work miracles, but it probably will not come over night. You are going to have to learn how to fight the spirits of alcohol.
Why didn’t God just transport the people to the Promised Land? Because they needed to learn how to fight. They needed to learn how to discern God’s voice from the voice of the enemy. They needed to be strengthened for the battle coming when they crossed over the Jordan river to fight the giants of the land. God doesn’t fight all of our battles, but He does give us the weapons to be victorious.
Deliverance is a walk, not an event. Many people were taught wrong. They thought, “Well, can’t I just go and in Jesus Name, get it cast out?” No. The Lord gives us the pattern in the Old Testament.
29 I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate [for lack of attention] and the wild beasts multiply against you.
30 Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased and are numerous enough to take possession of the land.
If you had a garden plot that was 40 acres large, and God cleaned it completely out, and you had only a little hoe to work it with, by the time you reached the other end, it would be completely grown over with weeds.
God’s Principles are “Line upon line, precept upon precept.” This is how the Lord works, so don’t get discouraged if it takes awhile. Just keep after them and with time you will get free.
Do we have authority over the demons? You bet. Will it take time? Probably. You can’t change everything over night. A soul is very complex, and the variables to restoring and delivering someone are endless.
