There are times that we need to declare the Word of God in the atmosphere. Spiritual warfare is real. There is good and there is evil. There are angels and there are demons, They are not just on TV, they are real. We all have the choice on whom we will serve. There WILL be a battle in this world for your mind, your thoughts, your heart, and your soul.
“Little children (believers, dear ones), you are of God and you belong to Him and have [already] overcome them [the agents of the antichrist]; because He who is in you is greater than he (Satan) who is in the world [of sinful mankind].” – 1 John 4:4 AMP
God is for us and not against us. But this life isn’t all rainbows and butterflies. There will be many that come against you because you are a believer in Christ. It happened to Jesus, and He said that it would happen to us as well.
‘ I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]” – John 16:33 AMP

How to Declare the Victory over Spiritual Attack
Prayer is essential in overcoming a spiritual attack. I had to get back to reading God’s Word whether I felt like it or not. I had to flood my mind with His Word with Apps like Audible, Dwell, and Biblegateway
Search for Bible verses on the subject you are dealing with. For me, I have had 2 years of illness and malaise. I had to find scriptures on the Healing Power of Jesus. I had to read them out loud and announce to myself, God and the enemy that Jesus can and will heal me. For more visit: GODS WORD IS YOUR MOST POWERFUL WEEAPON IN THE BATTLE.
I also have felt fearful and stressed. Here is how God brought me out of it, 14 QUOTES ON FEAR AND WHAT TO DO WITH IT
I have also battled feeling worthless and was full of despair. I had to start to believe what GOD said, more than what my thoughts were saying. Here is how God helped me: LETTING GO OF THE PAST AND NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
“In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [draw your strength from Him and be empowered through your union with Him] and in the power of His [boundless] might. Put on the full armor of God [for His precepts are like the splendid armor of a heavily-armed soldier], so that you may be able to [successfully] stand up against all the schemes and the strategies and the deceits of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist and stand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable, victorious]. So stand firm and hold your ground, having tightened the wide band of truth (personal integrity, moral courage) around your waist and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (an upright heart), and having strapped on your feet the gospel of peace in preparation [to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news]. Above all, lift up the [protective] shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. With all prayer and petition pray [with specific requests] at all times [on every occasion and in every season] in the Spirit, and with this in view, stay alert with all perseverance and petition [interceding in prayer] for all God’s people.” – Ephesians 6:10-18 AMP
