Strategic Warfare that Turns the Battle - #6 - Nothing to Lose
6. Nothing to lose. When people feel alone, dejected, disillusioned or hopeless, they will fight harder. In other words, they feel they have nothing to lose. Some will fight for the wrong things because they believe it is their only option. The enemy uses fear, accusation, guilt, shame and bitterness in order to create a sense of hopelessness. This is how he brainwashes people to doing his will. As people's hearts are darkened with unbelief, they give themselves over to believing the lies of the enemy more and more. They lose their will to fight for their freedom. Those people can be convinced to surrender to the will of the enemy and become his puppet. Our job is to create hope and inspire others to fight for a new life and new opportunities for health, life, happiness and success.
Give me Your words that will inspire hope in those that have lost hope and are fighting for the wrong cause. Help me to discern my opponent's Achilles heel; the one thing that can get to their heart and cause them to feel again. I ask for the words of life that will change my opponent’s heart and cause them to regret the path they've taken. I pray that You would touch those that have positioned themselves as adversaries and enemies, and reveal Your will and Your plan for their life. Show them that with You all things are possible. I pray that they would deeply desire their freedom and restoration and it would cause them to change the direction of their life for the better. In Jesus name, Amen.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13 NIV
