Never Give Up and Always Keep Pushing to Overcome Evil

Never give up a spiritual war until you believe God has granted you the upper hand against Satan. Have faith that God will complete His will, not yours, in the appropriate manner and at the appropriate time.

Acknowledge the Existence of Evil in the World Around You

Never forget that evil exists and is present within our fallen world; avoid being deceived into believing that it has no impact on your life or the existence of those you love. Lucifer and his fallen angels are real. Pray to God to enable you to see evil in action in all the different circumstances you come across.

Break Unhealthy Bondages and Stand Up to Evil

Seek the assistance of the Holy Spirit to identify any problems that could be holding you captive to evil, such as addictions, unforgiveness, generational sin, sadness, a bad self-image, engaging in illicit sexual activity, bitterness, or participation in occultism. Whatever sins the Spirit shows you, confess them, turn from them, and vow never to sin again.

Grant yourself God’s pardon and extend forgiveness to those who have wronged you. To live a better and more obedient life, request the Holy Spirit to assist you in breaking bad thoughts and behavior habits. Knowing how to fight against evil and fighting evil through spiritual warfare is necessary at certain times.

If you were in a situation like the one in The Sword of the Spirit: City on the Brink by Wayman Jackson, you’d certainly need to be fighting evil on a different level.
