Neither give place to the devil. (Ephesians 4:27, KJV)
The word of God lets us know that the evil we see in the world today doesn't just happen. The word lets us know that it is backed by an invincible force who is in rebellion against God's authority. His name is Satan, and as many as have given him the place to operate will experience suffering and great troubles. Satan is indeed a rebellious spirit, he indeed walks about seeking whom may devour, but the place he has to operate is the one that you give him in your life and your world. Satan has no ground for operation if you refuse him one. All his seemingly powerful schemes and plots are nothing when he has no grounds for operation. The word says, give no place to the devil. This something you need to learn how to do. It's important because If you don't, then Satan will illegally rampage your life and your world. So it's important to know how the word of God teaches us to deny him grounds for operation?
The Bible says Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7, KJV) The first thing the word of God teaches us is to be in subjection to God. That means to submit our heart and character to the authority of the word to live in what the word says. It's important to live right in accordance with the word of God so that Satan finds not an accusation against you, and even if he finds an accusation against you for a wrong living, you can turn his own plans against him by changing your heart and receiving forgiveness of sins and then turning your heart to the Word and rebuking him. This is important because anytime you are not submitted to the word, the devil seems to have an upper hand, so align your entire life with the word and live in submission to God's authority - the Word.
Secondly, he said to resist the devil and he will flee from you. (Understand that this is only possible when you submit yourself to God, so change your heart if you are not in submission to the word and you will immediately have the authority to resist the devil).Now, how do you resist the devil as you are in submission to God? You do so through the declarations of the words of faith in the spirit of prayer. You don't want the devil in operation anymore? Well, kick him out. Tell him to get out and stay out and he will. Speak out faith-filled words and deny him a place by that in every area of your life. Whatever you will decree will be established. Job 22:28 says Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. You are a king over every circumstance and situation. You are a king over Satan. That's the truth. Satan and all his demons are your slaves. Even though they are rebellious, it doesn't change their position. They are slaves, Glory to God! Kick them out and never allow them to operate or to bring havoc.
DECLARATION: I declare that my life henceforth and evermore is in submission to God through the word. I refuse the devil a place in my life, my family, and my world. I break the influence of darkness and wickedness. I proclaim the authority of the name of Jesus over them. I cut them off from my life, my nation, and my world. I refuse evil to operate. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! I'm a son of God, I'm reigning over demons. I'm reigning in victory. Hallelujah!
