Shifting Atmospheres Chapter 12

Chapter 12 – Assignments

In this chapter we learn about how the enemy may have an assignment to destroy us, and that he may use different tactics to find our weaknesses to attack successfully.

When we recognize the attacks of the enemy, we must renounce our ties to his lies instead of partnering with his broadcasts / thoughts.

I like how Dawna pointed out through her story that even when you quit partnering with the enemy there's still a fight to be fought: all the antagonism doesn't just disappear, but now the enemy doesn't have power anymore.  I don't get why God doesn't always just zap the enemy into oblivion, but what I do know is that Yahweh (the Lord) wins.

We can use prayer to break assignments of the enemy.  We should not be fearful and focus on the assignments the enemy may have on us, but instead on God’s promises of protection.

The atoning blood of our Messiah is a strong defense against the power of the enemy.

The following quote gives a good summary of what we learn in this chapter:
“If you find yourself or a loved one in the midst of a demonic assignment, partner with God to plead the blood of Jesus over your life. Repent for any fear you have allowed into your life and meditate on the Scriptures that reveal the power of God.”
