In the book of Daniel 10, a principality in the high place withstood the angel sent to Daniel for twenty one days but a higher authority came and arrested the said principality. The prayers of Christians are at times been delayed because of wicked spirits in high places that don’t want them to be delivered. Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the world’s rulers, of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in high places”.
In truth, we are no match for these wicked spirits but when we invoke the power of the risen Christ against them, they have no choice than to obey. It is not to begin to dialogue with them but to command them according to the word of God. Jesus said in Matthew 18:18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven”.
There are some actions we need to take here on earth and in heaven, a
corresponding action is taken on our behalf where we did not have jurisdiction.
To overcome the wicked spirits in high places, we need to ascend to the highest place of authority which is the throne of grace of the living God in heaven. I remember a story I read about a young pilot sometimes back. He was a fighter jet pilot and in one of his training flight when he was thousands of miles above sea level, he began to hear an unfamiliar sound from his engine. He focused on it and saw a rat gnawing at some wires in the engine! The pilot was alarmed! There was nothing he could do to stop the rat from biting the wires which could cause a major catastrophe for his life. Suddenly he remembered that living things cannot survive at certain high altitudes. Instantly he began to climb up with his jet to beat the rat at its destructive mission. After climbing to an altitude, he noticed the rat became dizzy and eventually it died for lack of oxygen. Brethren, that rat in the story is the principality in high place that want to destroy your destiny but the moment you discover it, the only thing you can do against it is to climb up to God in prayer far above the jurisdiction of that principality.
There is no situation against you that can withstand the presence of God, provided you approach the High place of God with the right conditions.
Prayer point: I bind and arrest by fire every powers and principalities against my destiny in Jesus name.
