The three keys that will prepare you to battle your obstacles through spiritual warfare are giving, prayer and fasting.
These are not suggestions that we are given to follow -- Jesus makes it clear that God expects us to do these things by using the word “when”:
But WHEN thou doest alms…thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. Matthew 6:3 - 4
And WHEN thou prayest…enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. Matthew 6:5 - 6
Moreover WHEN ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance…and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. Matthew 6:16 - 18
When these three vital Christian principles are followed, together their combined power provides life-transforming “weapons” for engaging in spiritual warfare.
And even during periods of peace and tranquility, you will deeply benefit from engaging in a period of spiritual practice that combines these three acts.
By combining giving, prayer and fasting, you will pave the way to walking in the true freedom God intends for you. You will be equipped for spiritual warfare that will break every yoke and destroy every stronghold in your life! Chose to live a victorious life in Jesus!
