TRUTH = DELIVERANCE

THE ENEMY'S NARRATIVE

"If you take a child and get their whole biological, mental, and emotional selves ringing with the wrong message, they will go through life seeing everything through the lens of that lie."

—NiNi

NOTES

 "The devil was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

 

—John 8:44


The enemy is hell-bent on imprinting a certain message onto you, usually from childhood. He's strategic about sending multiple experiences to confirm that lie until you believe it unquestioningly. For example, "No one loves me," or "Everything I try will fail," or "I don't have the support I need." 

Many times these narratives are not just in our thinking, but also, there are very real demonic entities that are enforcing those realities in our circumstances. When there's a curse over your life, you may notice a repeated pattern of failure in a certain area. For example, you repeatedly end up in abusive relationships. Or every business you start goes bankrupt. We can start to tear down the enemy's narrative by breaking our mental agreement with the lie. 

Even if it seems like no one loves you, you can begin to believe that you are loved. 

Even if every business venture you've ever attempted has failed, you can begin to believe that God will bless the work of your hands. 

This might seem crazy at first . . . until you realize you can change your reality by changing your beliefs. 

This is not the same as New Age "positive thinking." Find a promise in God's word and begin to come into agreement with it. You can tear down demonic strongholds by thinking and speaking the Word of God over your situation. The weapons of our warfare are mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. 

If there is a curse over your health, your relationships, or your finances, your first step is to break agreement with it and start believing God's truth. Once you've done that, you will have authority over the demonic spirits that are enforcing the curses. As long as you agree with them, you will have a hard time telling them to leave, since you are party to the lies with them. 

You've got to identify the primary narratives the enemy has strategically built over your life, and launch all your firepower against that narrative in Jesus' name. And your primary weapon is your tongue.
