All humans, upon being born from a woman, find themselves in some sort of spiritual conflict. The world is constantly in conflict between the forces of darkness and the forces of light and righteousness, with humans caught in between. However, only individuals who truly believe in Christ Jesus will ultimately experience full victory.
At the end of his ministry, Paul declared,
“7I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith”(2 Timothy 4:7).
He knew all along that he was fighting a spiritual warfare. What about you? Are you aware of your battles?

Many individuals face spiritual battles without being spiritually reborn, leading to a lack of success in their struggles. Without accepting the spiritual transformation of being born-again, it is difficult to win against the devil. Unfortunately, most people on earth are unaware of the ongoing spiritual conflicts, attributing their battles to physical issues. Despite having wealth and resources to solve problems, they will still lose as their battles will reappear in different forms.
It is a wise thing to be conscious of the fact that everything that has physical dimension also has spiritual dimension. Most people on earth are under the bondage of one sin or another. You have to recognize that there is a demon behind every kind of sin. And such demons can only be addressed successfully through spiritual means, in this case; prayer. The truth is that, if you are under the oppression of an evil spirit, you cannot reign over some circumstances even as a Christian.
“10And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. 11And, behold, there was a woman, which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. 12And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity. 13And he laid his hands on her: and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God”(Luke 13:10-13).
“16And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day?”(Luke 13:16).
Let’s take for instance, this woman that Satan bound for eighteen years. She was a true child of God, born-again and daughter of Abraham. Yet, Satan took her hostage for eighteen years. The source of her deliverance showed up but she was ignorant of Him. Satan tormented her with evil spirit of infirmity until Jesus said it was enough.
What is that sickness or disease in your life, which Jesus cannot bring to an end? Jesus is the deliverance that you have been praying and seeking for.
“32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free… 36If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”(John 8:32, 36).
Now that you have known the truth; that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the Lord and Savior of your life, you must act in faith at once, in order to be free from evil bondages. It also means that it is now time to resist the devil. If you are not born-again yet, do not waste any second more. Confess that Jesus is your Lord and Savior and receive Him in your heart today.
“3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he can not see the kingdom of God”(John 3:3).
