TD Jakes (December-26-2023) Daily Devotional: Understanding Spiritual Warfare.

Bible Quote: "Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked." - Luke 8:33

The encounter between Jesus and the demon-possessed man in Gadarenes unveils a significant aspect of spiritual warfare – the battle is not just over individuals but over territories and influence. 

The insistence of the demons to remain in the region, even if it meant inhabiting swine, underscores their desire to maintain control over the territory, not just the individual.

This narrative teaches us that the enemy’s interest often lies beyond the personal; it extends to the territories we influence and the potential we possess. 

The demonic forces are not just after individuals; they are after regions, communities, and spheres of influence. 

The devil's tactics are strategic; he is content to use anyone or anything as a pawn in his larger scheme to dominate and corrupt territories.

Understanding this broader scope of spiritual warfare changes our perspective on the challenges we face. 

It's not merely personal attacks; these are strategic moves in a larger battle for control and influence over the regions we are destined to impact. 

The enemy's fear of our potential and influence is the reason behind the intensity of these attacks.

This message also emphasizes the importance of recognizing the storms in our lives as indicators of our potential and divine destiny. 

These storms are not random; they are orchestrated to prevent us from realizing our full potential. 

When we trace back the storms in our lives, especially those beyond our control, we begin to see a pattern that points to the enemy's awareness and fear of what we are capable of achieving for God's kingdom.

TD Jakes' Prayer: Heavenly Father, open our eyes to the broader scope of spiritual warfare in our lives. Help us to understand that the battles we face are not just personal, but are about the territories and influence You have destined for us. Give us the wisdom and strength to withstand these storms, knowing they are a testament to our potential and Your plans for us. Equip us, Lord, to reclaim and sanctify our territories for Your glory. Amen.
