In other words, do not wait for trouble or challenges to visit you, and then you respond. Instead, youmust take on a proactive spirit and deal with your future troubles and challenges in the spirit realm before they manifest in the natural realm!
Most folks when they would have received a bad doctor's report or their kids encountered some trouble; it is at this point that they want to rally up their prayer partners to launch a counter attack on the Enemy's camp. This, my friend, is called being reactive. Unfortunately, our response is only because of the physically attack. We as human beings who resides in a world that we share with spirits have the unique advantage of not only calling things that be not into existence but also preventing certain things from manifesting in our life before their happenings.
The facts are, everything has its origin in the spirit world before its existence in our natural or physical world. We have the ability to prevent certain spiritual things and events that were conceived in the spirit world from entering our natural world.
One of the primary ways that we do this is by being "PROACTIVE" in our prayers. We do this by canceling and rebuking all evil devices, schemes, and ploys that have been spiritually implemented by Satan and his kingdom before their happenings in our physical world. Another way we can cancel the plans of the kingdom of darkness before they manifest in the earth would be via challenging our bad dreams. Our dreams provide us with a glimpse of the activities being conceived either for us or against us in the unseen world. Again, in being proactive, we begin the process through prayer by asking God to destroy everything in the spirit realm that the Enemy has planned and conspired against us so that it can not manifest in our lives.
I know of many Christians that were diagnosed with a certain sickness and it was only at this point they wanted to "press into God" for a miracle. The reality is we all have the advantage of praying against, Cancers, Heart disease, diabetes and any other disease before their manifestation. These diseases or any other negative event such as a divorce, premature death being terminated from a job, etc. did not begin when the physical events took place physically. Unfortunately, these negative events were all initiated spiritually and what is being displayed physically is its manifestation that was never challenged spiritually.
We as Believers of Jesus Christ MUST change our methods and strategies as it relates to how we engage in spiritual warfare. The only way this can be achieved. We must adhere to the laws and rules that are laid out in scripture such as We are not fighting against flesh and blood and that we must gear our attention on the spirit world if we intend to be successful in our natural world according to Ephesians 6:12 and 2 Corinthians 4:18.
Why not let this day be the day that you change and implement the biblical strategies of spiritual warfare? While you may not be divorced or suffering from some terminal disease, it would certainly be proactive in praying against them now to ensure that they never take shape in your life later. Therefore, we must choose life instead of death by being proactive instead of reactive.
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” Deuteronomy 30:19.
