With God’s help, this demon has no control over our lives. Jesus gave his life freely so that we can be delivered and set free even from this powerful stronghold.
The police force, government, victim organizations, and legal institutions are baffled by this stronghold. Why? Because victimization is just the tip of the iceberg.
Files upon files of data can not solve the [spiritual] stronghold of victimization. Victimization wages war on the innocent and hopeless, as it brings with it other strongholds [fear, rage, bitterness, torment, confusion, malice, murder, offense, vengeance, fraud, gossip, defiance, rebellion, pedophilia, and thousands more] to reinforce its agenda — to kill, steal, and destroy.
It’s up to us to turn from victimization to the healing, forgiveness, and love found only in the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Don’t be deceived. Many so called Christians can and do victimize. Turn to God. He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Victimization steals innocence, peace, joy, love, and all the blessings God gives us. It’s time to take control [from being a victim] of our [God given] right to be free.
1. Turn to God and trust him to guide you through the minefield of victimization. Salvation and guidance through Christ can restore lives and blessings.
Psalm 51:12 Restore the joy of your salvation to me, and provide me with a spirit of willing obedience.
Psalm 12:5-7 (NLT) The Lord replies, “I have seen violence done to the helpless, and I have heard the groans of the poor. Now I will rise up to rescue them, as they have longed for me to do.” 6 The Lord’s promises are pure, like silver refined in a furnace, purified seven times over. 7 Therefore, Lord, we know you will protect the oppressed, preserving them forever from this lying generation,
2. Be patient and learn all you can about salvation, God’s will, His truth, His everlasting love, and guidance. Rest in Him and ask Him for His protection from victimization.
Psalm 10:16-18 The Lord is king forever and ever! The godless nations will vanish from the land. 17 Lord, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them. 18 You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed, so mere people can no longer terrify them.
3. Be wise in trusting others with your life and personal information. Wisdom is from God and the beginning of wisdom is the [true] knowledge of God. Refuse to remain a victim. Seek help now if you are in danger.
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of [wisdom] knowledge. Stubborn fools despise wisdom and discipline.
Proverbs 4:7 The beginning of Wisdom is: get Wisdom (skillful and godly Wisdom)! [For skillful and godly Wisdom is the principal thing.] And with all you have gotten, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation).
4. Forgive. One of the hardest things to do after being victimized is to forgive. However, this stronghold [of victimization & its companion strongholds] will not leave unless you do.
Ephesians 1:7 Through the blood of his Son, we are set free from our sins. God forgives our failures because of his overflowing kindness.
Ephesians 4:32 Be kind to each other, sympathetic, forgiving each other as God has forgiven you through Christ.
5. Reach out to help others see and know God’s love through you and your healing. As you heal help victims of abuse, natural disasters, and terrorists.
Proverbs 16:23 A wise person’s heart controls his speech, and what he says helps others learn.
Hebrews 13:16 Don’t forget to do good things for others and to share what you have with them. These are the kinds of sacrifices that please God.
Philippians 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
