But this is what the LORD says: "Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and
plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you,
and your children I will save.” (Isaiah 49:25)
Are you worried because your children are truant & unruly? Can it be that the enemy of
your soul- Satan- has taken them captive? So many prayers; yet you do not see any
change in their lives! Be assured this day that your prayers will not go unanswered. Jesus
will set them free.
Perhaps it's not your children but your spouse or parents who have become captives to the
devil. Jesus will set them free. Jesus advised his disciples to fast and pray to get victory
over unbelief and the demon powers.
Use the Word of God to fight against the enemy. It's sharper than any double edged sword
and can destroy strongholds. Do not despair. Take up the shield of faith and fight.
The Apostle Paul says,
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have
divine power to demolish strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:4)
God says, "I will contend with those who contend with you..." Believe in him. Do what his
Word says in the book of Ephesians:
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that
you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh
and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark
world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the
full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your
ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of
truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with
your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all
this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the
evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of
God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.....
Will you do it? You will see victory in your lives soon.
