There is no doubt about it that many cultures and the overall human existence believed in the existence of demons,witches,wizards and all sorts of existence in the dark world.
Ephesians 6 verse 12 buttresses this believe and understanding which has made many Christians to believe in their existence and influence on the surface of the heart.
This made many religious gathering to have their contents and contexts been about winning and having victory over these demonic existence believed to be in control of the terrestrial and celestial existence.
Are they real?
No doubt about it,they are real and they are all out been commissioned to influence the destiny of men.
Now,this is my drift.
As I was in the laundry washing clothes just now,a content along this line of thought popped into my mind and I had a different view about what principalities and powers are.
Then,what are they?
Do you know that you might be your own principalities and power?
Do you know that the system been operated in your environment, Society,places of work, families and homes might be principalities and powers?
Do you know that your behaviour, attitude and characters might be the principalities and powers you need to contest with?
Do you know that your views about a subject matter or a particular endeavour might be your principalities and powers?
Do you know that your confession and overall expression might be your principalities and powers?
Do you know that lack of wisdom, knowledge and understanding might be your principalities and powers?
Life has taught me that the solutions to any challenge remains unattainable till you have the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of what could trigger the solution.
You are where you are today due to what you know and you will remain there till you know what you should know that have the potential to move you forward.
While many of us spend a large percentage of our time and season binding the devil,we should remember that we might be the devil that needs to be in chain.
A simple understanding of what attitudinal and behavioural change are all about might be enough to change your prospects and your fortunes.
While you as a Christian is busy running from pillar to post and from one mountain to another,you should remember that other people are not praying about what you are bothered about.
They just align themselves with the basic principles of life that ends up attracting their solutions.
Whenever you keep praying and fasting over an issue for a long time, endeavour to appraise and check yourself if you are not the source of the problem.
If you are the source of the problem, you will be the solution to it.
Every Christian should be careful of hypocrisy in their approach to spirituality.
God does not want irresponsible children.
God is bound to fulfill His part of the convenient and God expected you to fulfill your own part.
The taxonomy of the principalities and powers you are praying against might not be in the devil’s manifest ,the taxonomy might be you as a person.
There is hope for you if you can be truthful with yourself by:
1.Being objective in your views to issues around you.
2.Engaging in continuous and constant self appraisal.
3.Live a life of continuous self development.
4.Be attentive to advise and detailed instructions.
5.Be willing to live your comfort zone.
6.Be comfortable with the right company.
7.Be choosy, classic and selective in mingling with people.
8.Build the right environment for yourself.
9.Be hopeful and be positive.
10.Be on the look out for opportunities.
If you can engage some of this, you might end up living your life above the stronghold of self afflicted principalities and powers that has no connection with the devil.
Don’t be a victim of self afflicted battle.
