To deliver yourself, you have to make sure that you confess all your sins and determine to forsake them. You have to be sincere with God, trusting Him to help you not to return to sins you repented of and confessed.
13He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy”(Proverbs 28:13).
“7Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting”(Galatians 6:7-8).

God Cannot Be Tricked: He Distinguishes Sincerity from Insincerity. Merely Pledging Loyalty to God Without a genuine resolve to Live for Him is Self-deception and mocks His Divinity. Keep in Mind That Every Vow and Confession Made to God May Be Tested Before Receiving True and Long-Lasting Responses.”
“14Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee… 11She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more”(John 8:11, 5:14).
“13Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is”(1 Corinthians 3:13).
Going for deliverance without a genuine intention to give up your sinful ways is a futile and dangerous decision. It may lead to more problems and prolonged suffering, rather than bringing freedom. A false deliverance, which is simply a postponement of suffering by the devil, can be extremely harmful and discouraging.
“24And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented”(Luke 16:24-25).
Turning away from sin is the most important prerequisite for all deliverance. Sinners, occultists and all rich people without reference to Christ may have their feast days now. But one thing is sure; they cannot have any safe days. Their days are cursed and God’s wrath remains upon them. Without true repentance, whatever you are pursuing now or already cannot deliver you when God’s anger descends.
After accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, confessing your sins, and committing to leave them behind, the next step is to praise and worship God, expressing gratitude for His goodness and mercy in your life. Trust in God to protect and deliver you from all difficulties and hopeless circumstances.
