Has God Already Done Everything He’s Going to Do About the Devil?

When we’re in the midst of a spiritual battle—whether over our personal lives, our families or even contending for revival in our cities and awakening in our nation—many sincere believers tend to petition God to rise up and take action against the enemy.

The problem is: When it comes to matters of spiritual warfare, it’s not God who needs to wake up and rise up. It’s us.

Jesus defeated the enemy on the cross (see Col. 2:15). Now, that doesn’t mean that the enemy can’t wreak havoc in our lives, in our cities or in our nations. Look at what’s happening in Iraq, China and the United States of America. Persecution is rising in the Middle East and Asia, while much of the church is sound asleep on prophetic pillows of prosperity in the Western world.

Clearly, there’s a devil on the loose. A literal onslaught of principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age, and spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places is working hard to fulfill Satan’s mission (see Eph. 6:12). Our job is to get instructions from the Holy Spirit in a place of worship and waiting on the Lord, run to the battle line with eyes wide open, fully awake to what’s happening in the spiritual realm, and enforce Christ’s victory over the devil He defeated. Victory belongs to us if we follow the Holy Spirit’s battle plan.
