Have you made a declaration in your life to push away Satan and his deceptive ways. Pastor Tim challenges us to be intentional about our life and resist the things that are not of God. Pastor Tim often recites a quip, “The most troubling thing about deception is that it’s deceiving” Be on your guard trust your life in Christ and protect your mind from the Deceiver.
This week’s scripture references (all verses quoted in New King James Version unless noted):
Below are some excerpts and guides from this weeks teaching to help you renounce Satan in your life.
As we go through the steps of renouncing Satan and all his works and ways, we can ask for God’s help by praying in the following way:
Dear heavenly Father, I ask You to reveal to me all the occultic practices, false religions, and false teachers with which I have knowingly or unknowingly been involved.
– Write down everything God brings to mind. After you are sure your list is complete, pray the following for each practice, religion, and teacher:
Lord, I confess that I have participated in ___________________
I ask Your forgiveness, and I renounce _____________________
as a counterfeit to true Christianity.
Don’t feel bad if you must confess several things. Many hurting people like you and me have been misguided in a world which is filled with cults, false religions, and false teachers.
Satan doesn’t want us to be free, and he will do whatever he can to keep us from completing these steps to freedom.
Dear heavenly Father, I know that You desire truth in the inner self and that facing this truth is the way of liberation. John 8:32, says “…And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” I acknowledge that I have been deceived myself. 1 John 1:8, If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that You, heavenly Father, will rebuke all deceiving spirits by virtue of the shed blood and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. And since by faith I have received You into my life and am now seated with Christ in the heavenly places. Ephesians 2:6, and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
I command all deceiving spirits to depart from me now. I now ask the Holy Spirit to guide me into all truth. John 16:13, However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
And I pray the prayer of Psalm 139:23-24, Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
24 And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
