...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light
for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
Words of prophecy:
* The only way in which Satan can hinder the obedience of My bondservants and handmaidens is to get them to partake of those things which
are harmful to them - that is, harmful to their minds and bodies. Therefore as they are obedient to My Spirit in their "food intake" [both spiritually and physically], and as they bring every thought captive to perfect obedience - forsaking the lying thoughts
of the Evil One at every turn - they shall truly walk above all of the schemes of Satan.
The only way in which Satan would be enabled to cause hardness of heart towards Me in the innermost
being of My bondservants and handmaidens, would be for them to "allow" themselves to be lured into an area wherein they are continually "saturated" with the excesses of the world. Therefore, as My children guard their hearts with all diligence, they will come
to view all things which would only serve to remove them from the "high life" as poison, and because of this Satan's schemes against them shall be stopped before they even begin.

Practicing an ongoing resistance against the negative and lying thoughts
of the Enemy is something we all must be found diligent to carry out. This continual resistance - through bringing EVERY thought captive to a revelation of who we truly are in Christ - is a key to both learning about and practicing our faith. Also, it is precisely
how our inner man [spirit] remains in dominance over our soul [mind, will, emotions] and body empowering us to rise above any "outward" things and circumstances - regardless of the degree of adversity we might face in any given moment.
are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]"....
2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
...."Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your
hearts, you double-minded".... James 4:7-8 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that the Enemy is a defeated foe. In light of these things,
we set ourselves to diligently be found standing in the fullness of our precious Covenant, in Christ - knowing that, as we do, the Enemy will be put to flight at every turn. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory.
...."No weapon that is formed against you will prosper;".... Isaiah 54:17 NASB
