"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Eph. 6:12).
We are called upon to bind unseen forces. We have authority over the Devil and evil spirits. But we do not have authority over men or their wills.
Years ago, a pastor friend of mine accompanied me from Fort Worth to a camp meeting in California. This man had diabetes, and he had to check his urine every morning for sugar content to see how much insulin he would need for his daily injection.
As we were leaving for California, I said, "You won't register any sugar as long as you're with me."
He looked at me as if he didn't believe me, but in the almost two weeks he was with me, he never registered any sugar,even though he ate pies and cakes.
He later told me he was home for three days before he registered sugar again.
Why? I took authority over his sickness. I had control over unseen forces, but I didn't have control over his will.
As long as he was with me, and this unseen force was in my presence, I could control it. I tried to convince him he could do the same thing, but he expected it to come back, and it did.
Confession: I have authority over all unseen forces in my realm of domain. And I bind them and stop their activity in Jesus' Name!
