Session 7: Spiritual Warfare
in Praise and Worship (cont.)  
        Dan Gardner

  

VI. THE PROMISE OF VICTORY (cont.)

The chart below details two areas of spiritual warfare and how we can deal with these kind of battles, but the real key to not allowing the enemy any room is to establish a lifestyle of praise and worship and a high standard of praise and worship in your life; as Isaiah 61 says, having a “garment of praise” or “arrayed” in praise. As you establish this kind of pattern in your life, you will respond to any spiritual attack in a spiritual manner.

Spiritual Warfare Through Praise, Worship and Prayer

AREAS OF CONFLICT,
STRONGHOLDS
FLESH REACTIONS
TO SPIRITUAL
CONFLICTS
SPIRITUAL RESPONSE—
THE PLACE OF VICTORY
  1. Circumstances,
    Direct attacks of the enemy,
    Uncontrollable situations,
    Problems and pressure "JEHOSHAPHAT"
  1. Murmur, complain,
    Spirit of heaviness,
    "Woe is me" or "Why me" attitude

These HINDER our worship!!!

As we move into God's presence and resist the devil (James 4:7), the presence of the Lord causes the enemy to flee, and God's virtue to flow to us and/or our situation!
  1. II Chronicles 20:1-25 — JEHOSHAPHAT
    1. KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE LORD (vs. 12)
      (Don't magnify problem, magnify the Lord; remember His goodness in past)
    2. WORSHIP HIM
      (He hasn't changed—vs. 18)
    3. GO BEFORE THE ENEMY IN THE POWER OF THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD—PRAISING HIM!
      (VS. 22—TEHILLAH)
      (Let God arise and watch His enemies scatter! Praise Him in the midst of the circumstance. "In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
      I Thessalonians 5:18),
      PSALM 27—Strength of dwelling in His presence.
  1. Bondages— Things that bind and hinder us in God: Religious tradition, Man-pleasing, self-seeking, Weaknesses of the flesh/mind:
    (fear, condemnation, insecurity, inadequacy,
    hidden sin, etc.)
    "PAUL AND SILAS"
  1. Discouragement, Helplessness, Hopelessness, Fear, Sense of Failure, "Give up" attitude
  1. Acts 16:16-33 — PAUL & SILAS
    1. CHAINS OF THE ENEMY CAN'T BIND THE SPIRIT OF PRAISE (praise the Lord in the midnight hour)
      "Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance." Psalm 32:7.
      "I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears" Psalm 34:4
    2. WATCH POWERS OF GOD SHAKE THE STRONGHOLDS OF
      THE ENEMY
      (praise through the victory, perservere)
      "Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the heathen,
      to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise."
      Psalm 106:47
    3. DON'T ALLOW DOUBT TO ENTER—CAST DOWN IMAGINATIONS (Praise keeps attitude toward God II Corinthians 10:4,5)
      Galatians 5:1—"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage."
