I give myself away
Looking deeper at Luke 11: 14
14 And He was casting out a demon, and it was mute. So it was, when the demon had gone out, that the mute spoke; and the multitudes marveled. Pay close attention to the type of prayers and the deliverance presented here.
The scripture says, Jesus was casting out a demon and the demon was referred to as mute. Mute had oppressed the individuals spirit for sometime, but because Jesus came exercising the power and authority given to Him through the Father the demon was cast out of the person who had been held captive releasing him to speak. Many would immediately think that this was and a mute as in a person born with the effects of disability and it very well could have been. But let’s look at the society we live in and relate to the spirit of mute resting on people in ways whereas satan wants to silence them from praying and worshipping God. Many people have been silenced by mute through discouraging situations. The pressure of life has weighed so heavily on them that they become numb, felling as if they have no joy, losing hope and fainting in faith. We must be reminded that our hope and faith will always be attacked when God is creating a miracle for us to testify about. However, mute will often call other demon friends like lack, confusion, or sickness to enforce its power over individuals, to help with added bondage if he is allowed visitation or attachment for a significant amount of time in or near the person’s body, which is why prayer is so vital to the unbelievers, believers and the body of Christ.
Prayer is our ability to plug into our power source where we receive the bread of life and communion through Jesus Christ. Born again believers are to use the gift of tongues as much as possible, because it strengthens the inner man against attacks as well as enforcing them during warfare that their walking through. Anyone not born again is encouraged to receive the born again experience because the empowerment of the Holy Spirit reveals itself through the experience. Of course receiving Jesus as your savior is needed for those who haven’t given their lives to Christ Romans 10:9-10.
Moving forward anyone who finds themselves in a mute or silenced position whereas they cannot pray, should reach out to prayer partners and the elders of the Church. Deliverance prayers in this case are exercised binding and losing the works of the enemy. Scriptures to help us think beyond discouragement are Phil 4:8 as well which says, Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—THINK about such things. Joshua 1:8 says, meditate on these things and you will have good success. Meditating on the name of Jesus begins divine alignment and order to our thinking which breaks the yoke of resistance.
Our thoughts have much to do with opening the doors to the powers of darkness as well as shutting the doors on these powers, as a man thinks in his heart. Shutting the door happens through righteous thinking and using the word of God as if we live and breathe it. Shutting the doors take place through binding and loosing, Matthew 18:18-19 I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.…These words substantiate the keys of faith given for prayer along with the need for two or three to agree solidifying the prayer prayed to be a done deal. Jesus and the person bound agreed coupling their faith and liberation was the result. One more scripture to help the mind understand that without our consent nothing can hold us captive, Isaiah 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you, meaning we trust in God. Amen!
