There are certain things we must do to allow GOD accomplish HIS purposes in our lives, families and nation:
1. HUMBLE YOURSELF
There is a scripture we often quote in praying for our nations, but it is not only for healing of nations. It applies equally to our individual lives and families.
“…if My people who are called by My Name
will humble themselves and pray and
seek My face and turn from their wicked ways,
then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and
heal their land”(2 Chr. 7:14, emphasis mine).
If we see a manifestation of any of these symptoms, we should humble ourselves and ask for anointed servants of GOD to pray for us a prayer of deliverance. Thousands have been delivered from the yoke of oppression of water spirits.
They themselves need to be very prayerful even though the spirits hinder the prayer life of her captives.
But the scriptures say:
“Shall the prey be taken from the mighty or
the captives of the righteous be delivered? But thus says the Lord:
‘Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,
and the prey of the terrible be delivered for
I will contend with him who contends
with you and I will save your children’” (Is. 49:24-25).
3. SEEK HIS FACE
Ask GOD questions, and HE will give you answers.
“I sought the Lord and He heard me
And delivered me from all my fears
They looked to Him and were radiant
And their faces were not ashamed” (Ps. 34:4-5).
A brother was fed up of a life of continuous struggle with nothing to show for his struggles and efforts in life. As he did seven days of praying and fasting, the Lord ministered to him to ask his father questions.
This was the beginning of the deliverance of this brother from Satan’s oppression. (See also, Hos. 4:6; Is. 5:13-14).
4. TURN AWAY FROM YOUR WICKED WAYS
There is nothing God can do long as you do not repent of your sins of idolatry.
“Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save
nor His ear heavy that it cannot hear,
but your iniquities have separated you from your God
and your sins have hidden His face from you
so that He will not hear” (Is. 59:1-2).
Once there is repentance, admitting and turning away from the sin of idolatry, GOD begins to move to deliver HIS children or the nation.
5. ASK FOR AND RECEIVE NEEDED ANOINTING
The power and fire to carry out deliverance of people and places with marine spirits manifestations can be obtained only from GOD but the good news is that it is yours for the asking.
Meditate on the following scriptures: Matt. 3:11; Acts 10:38; Lk. 24:49; Ps. 110:1-3; Ps. 144:1, Ps. 85:6, Deut 2:24-25.
In Deut. 2:24, GOD told the Israelites to go across the River Arnon. He said He has given the king and his land to Israel, but that Israel should begin to possess the land and engage him in battle.
To possess America, Africa and our nations for the Lord, there are spiritual battles to be fought against water spirits, witchcraft, queen of heaven and numerous other satanic forces of darkness, because unwittingly men have given these lands to these forces through idolatrous practices.
The assurance we have is that as we go into these battles, we are not going in our strength and therefore, we have the victory. Meditate on these scriptures: Rev. 12:11; Col. 2:15; Eph. 6:11-18; Col. 2:13; I Cor. 15:58; Lk. 10:18-19; Ps. 8:6-8; Ps. 91:13; Ps. 51:20-23; Ezek. 22:30-31.
Let us be as Caleb who said, “Let us go up at once and take possession for we are well able to overcome it.” GOD was well pleased with Joshua and Caleb and because they trusted in Him, they lived and prospered. For those who were fearful, they perished in the wilderness.
