This week, I sense the Lord leading me to minister to those of you who have children that are being tormented by forces of darkness. Of course, this includes those of you who have any loved one who is being challenged in the same manner.
First of all, I want you to picture you child as an overcomer, because that is what the Scripture calls us as believers. Your child may be saved, or you may not know whether or not your loved one is saved. Regardless, we are called to speak Words of Life (Scripture) over them. We have the authority through Christ the Word to send laborers into their paths to minister salvation and the Living Hope of Christ. We have authority to break the bonds of darkness over their lives. The Word is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword dividing between the soul and spirit, the joints and marrow (Hebrews 4:12). The Word is exact. It is powerful. It is alive. It is the Breath and the Life Force of God. It works! It always works!
Remember, everything is accomplished in the Spirit before we see the manifestation of it in the flesh. So, if you are praying and believing for the forces of darkness or tormenting spirits to be broken off of your child or loved one and haven’t seen the manifestation yet, don’t quit. Don’t give up. Persevere. Your perseverance, your confidence, will have a great reward (Hebrews 10:35). Let me just share some Scriptures that you can believe to bear fruit in your life and your child’s life while you are standing for the manifestation of the Light to overcome the darkness. Pray these over your child and see him or her as the overcoming child of God that God has planned for him or her to be. Confess these Scriptures over your loved one. Put your child’s name in each one and know the Word accomplishes what it says, and your loved one will be delivered. Remember it is God’s desire that none should perish (2 Peter 3:9). If you are having a hard time believing, remember God tells us to call things that be not as though they are, making alive the dead (Romans 4:16-21). Verse 17 says God quickeneth the dead (KJV) or gives life to the dead (NIV). Do you see it? God destroys the death of darkness in our loved one’s life and gives His Life of Light. Wow! That is power! All you must do is receive the rhema Word of God for your situation and stand in God’s peace, knowing He will do the work. In the day of our trouble, God will answer (Psalm 86:7), and we will be helped (Psalm 28:7). Pray and do what the Lord leads you to do regarding your child. God will give you good plans and insights for a good end (Jeremiah 29:11-13).
Psalm 20:6 – Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He answers him from His holy heaven with the saving power of His right hand.
Psalm 1:3 – He is like a tree planted by the streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
Psalm 18:32-36 – It is God Who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; and enables me to stand on the heights….You give me your shield of victory, and Your right hand sustains me; You stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.
Psalm 25:12 – [God] will instruct him in the way chosen for him.
Psalm 34:4 – I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all of my fears….This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; He saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.
Psalm 37:26 – Speaking about the righteous (that’s you), this Psalm says, “…their children shall be blessed.” See also Psalm115:14-15.
Psalm 66:12 – We went through the fire and water, but You brought us to a place of abundance.
Psalm 138:7-8 – Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve my life…with Your right hand you save me. The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me. (KJV says the Lord will perfect that which concerns me.)
Proverbs 2:20 – Thus you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous.
Proverbs 10:24 – What the righteous [that’s you] desire will be granted.
Proverbs 13:20 – Confess that your child, “walks with the wise [and] grows wise.”
Ephesians 1:17-23 – I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way.
Ephesians 2:4-6 – But because of His great love for us, God, Who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions – it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 1:6 – Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion.
Romans 16:19 – My child is “wise about what is good, and innocent about what is evil.”
Galatians 2:20 – My child is, “crucified with Christ and [he/she] no longer live[s], but Christ lives in [her/him]. The life [he/she] now live[s] in the body, [he/she] live[s] by faith in the Son of God, Who loved [him/her] and gave Himself for [him/her].”
Colossians 1:10-13 – so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, Who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of His holy people in the kingdom of light. For He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves.
Hebrews 13:21 – Pray that God will “equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to Whom be glory for ever and ever.”
These are just a few Scriptures that will help you stand for your loved one. As you go before the Lord, He will speak the perfect Scripture to your heart for your specific situation. It only takes one rhema Word from God, and your situation will turn around for His glory and the deliverance of your child or loved one.
Be blessed and know the Lord is your help and answer,
Pastor Lisa Marie
If you have never made Jesus the Lord of your life and desire to, pray this: Dear God, I believe that Jesus is your Son, that He died on the cross for me and was resurrected for my redemption. I choose to make Jesus the Lord of my life. I thank you for forgiving me and for filling me with Your Holy Spirit. I thank You that I am Your child, that You are my Father, and that You have great things planned for me. Amen.
