What Lies Behind a Person?

Picture

We should always discern the source of what we hear and make sure that it lines up with the word of God. The Bible instructs us to try every spirit. We need to understand that everyone that crosses our path is part of a divine appointment, they are either sent by God or the Enemy. Every Person we meet is operating under some spirit. You will begin to discern people’s spirit over a length of time. The company you keep is life changing. Be careful who you discuss your problems with. Don’t allow everyone to speak into your life. Take it to the prayer closet. Listen more, speak less and forgive quickly.
The Holy Spirit is there to guide us, one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit is self control. We must not allow evil situations to master us. Negative situations are arrows used by the enemy to plant anger and unforgiveness in our hearts. Mark 11:25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins. If we yield to this rather than the Holy Spirit it will hinder our walk with Christ. We already know Satan is the accuser of believers, he goes back & forth trying to find legal ground and evidence of why God should not bless us. Satan and his agents are always orchestrating situations in order to get a reaction. This is why it is important to stop and think before you speak. The tongue is a …..that cannot be tamed.
It is important to calm down, recognise the source of the problem and begin to pray. We need to be quick to listen and slow to speak, it is foolish to overreact in such situations. When praying about the situation we must target the spirit operating behind the person. It is the spirit behind the person which is causing them to act in such a way. Many people don’t realise that they are being influenced by these evil spirits, especially if they are unsaved. Some people are operating in darkness, therefore the demons residing in them cannot stand the Holy Spirit that lives inside you. You better understand that our reaction is very important as others are watching.
As a follower of Christ, evil spirits are subject to you. They are under your feet you have been given the keys to the kingdom. Our battle is never physical, it is always spiritual. The Bible tells us that we are dealing with spiritual wickedness in high places, therefore we must deal with this type of opposition spiritually. Command your angels to go to war on your behalf. 2 Corinthians 10:4 We use God’s mighty weapons, wordly weapons , to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.
When faced with such attacks we should remember who we are in Christ. Be quick to forgive always, but understand that we do not have to tolerate the evil spirits that are using them. If it is a situation that can be avoided, we suggest you remove yourself from the situation. It is not easy to cut ties, especially in work settings, but I encourage believers to pray for that person and continue to show love.
No matter how vexed certain situations make you, do your best to let it go and move on. Always remember to try and show love, even in the face of adversity. This is one of the hardest things to do, but nothing is impossible with Christ. Try not let these situations change your character and upset your spirit. When you are feeling persecuted, just meditate upon the persecution of our Lord and
saviour. He was the greatest example of love and by coming down in the flesh has shown us that we can love our enemies .
