Lesson 10: How to Make the World Systems Serve You
Lecturer: Chaifa Berry
Based on Chapters 10 of the Strategies of War book by Apostle Colette Toach
In today's lesson, I want you to take the upper-hand on each one of the systems of the world. As you have faced an attack from each one of these systems, it is likely that they have intimidated you - some more than others. Today, you are going to turn the tables. Before you can do warfare against these systems, you need to realize that these systems are servants... servants to YOU.
You are the head and not the tail.
If you grew up with a curse of poverty and lack then the financial system will strike fear in your heart. That is because it is a master at using fear to make you pay. You would know what it is to be threatened to have your utilities cut off, or home taken away.
Today's lesson is all about getting the right perspective and getting the upper-hand. You are the King's kid and these systems are a servant at your feet. It is time you get the right perspective.
Only when you have the right perspective can you begin doing open warfare 101!
1. Go down the list of all the systems of the world
1a. Next to each one, say how you feel about it, in one or two words
2. For the ones that strike fear in your heart, follow the steps below:
2a. Go back to the first memory when you gave into fear. Break down that stronghold by uprooting that initial foundation (confess your fear, submit your sin to the Lord and take back the license you gave to the enemy).
2b. Now displace that fear with God's Word. Bulldoze the scripture, "... He who is in you is greater than He who is in the world." You can also search the scripture for others that inspire your faith.
You see, when I bulldoze this scripture I see myself as a giant in the land. I see myself as a queen and all the systems of the world as my servants. I am greater than all of them, because I am in Christ and He is in me. What you are doing is displacement warfare. You are turning that fear into faith. Do you know what you are doing, you are setting yourself up for favor. With all that positive expectation, you are making yourself a host to mercy and goodness!
Next time any of these systems attack, you can say, "Oh no you don't. I bind these circumstances right now. I put you on the throne of this system, Lord Jesus, and I call it into line with your will!"
Now you are doing Open Warfare!
