Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
Are you a prisoner of war?
Another part of the warfare you are in deals with what you do after you have been delivered. Deliverance brings about a void or an empty space within you. That void used to be filled by a habit, rehearsing your issues and problems, and /or time spent thinking about or doing something that pulled you away from God. Since God has delivered you, you must fill the void with the word of God, with prayer, with praise and with worship. You don’t want to leave it open for the enemy to return and bring with him more than you were delivered from. The enemy does not want you to have peace. He wants you in hell with him, both now and when you have passed away. He is determined to kill your peace, steal your joy and destroy your life, keeping you in his prison of despair. If you don’t fill that space, you will be held captive. You are the prize of this warfare.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I thank You for delivering me. I am seeking You to fill me with more of You. I do not want to fall prey to the same thing I was delivered from or more and worse things. Your word tells me, that is exactly what will happen if I don’t spend time with You, allowing you to fill that space with what You initially ordained for me. Continue to draw me closer to You. Help me to fine tune my ears so that I hear You speaking to me in every aspect of my life. I desire to be a representative of Your glory and an example of Your power…
