2 Chronicle 6:24-31 If Your people Israel have been defeated before the enemy because they have sinned against You, and shall return, confess Your name [and You Yourself], and pray and make supplication before You in this house, 25Then hear from heaven and forgive the sin of Your people Israel and bring them again to the land which You gave to them and their fathers. 26 When the heavens are shut up and there is no rain because Your people have sinned against You, yet if they pray toward this place, confess your name [and You Yourself ], and turn from their sin when You afflict them, 27Then hear from heaven and forgive the sin of Your servants, [all of ] Your people Israel, when You have taught them the good way in which they should walk. And send rain upon Your land which You have given to Your people for an inheritance.28 If there is famine in the land, if there is pestilence, blight, mildew, locusts, or caterpillars, if their enemies besiege them in any of their cities, whatever plague or sickness there may be, 29 Then whatever prayer or supplication any man or all of Your people Israel shall make--each knowing his own affliction and his own sorrow and stretching out his hands toward this house--30 Then hear from heaven, Your dwelling place, and forgive, and render to every man according to all his ways, whose heart You know; for You, You only, know men's hearts, 31That they may fear You and walk in Your ways as long as they live in the land which You gave to our fathers.
The devil comes to steal, destroy, and kill. If the devil is able to do such things against us, it is because we give the devil the authority over our lives through our sin, disobedience, or lack of faith.
Let the Holy Spirit search our hearts and let us walk and live in a spirit of repentance. Let us walk and live a life in the spirit of forgiving one another. Let us walk and live a life in the spirit of continual praise and thanksgiving.
Job 1:21 (AMP) And said, Naked (without possessions) came I [into this world] from my mother's womb, and naked (without possessions) shall I depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; blessed (praised and magnified in worship) be the name of the Lord!
2 Chronicles 6:36-39 (AMP)If they sin against You--for there is no man who does not sin--and You are angry with them and give them to enemies who take them captive to a land far or near; 37 Yet if they repent in the land to which they have been carried captive, and turn and pray there, saying, We have sinned, we have done wrong, and have dealt wickedly; 38 If they return to You with all their heart and soul in the land of their captivity, and pray facing their land which You gave to their fathers and toward the city which You have chosen and the house which I have built for Your Name;39Then hear from heaven, Your dwelling place, their prayer and supplications, and maintain their cause; and forgive Your people, who have sinned against You.
If we are being defeated in the areas of our lives, perhaps, we should ask the Holy Spirit if we are in SIN? The conditions are to repent, pray, and return with ALL your heart. Perhaps, some of us have not returned with ALL of our hearts but given God terms? We cannot give God terms, He requires FULL Surrender from us. He desires Full Authority over our lives. He is our Lord of Lords.
