Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord, And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces" Jeremiah 23:29 (NKJV)

"Plead my cause, O Lord, with those who strive with me; Fight against those who fight against me. Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for my help. Also draw out the spear, And stop those who pursue me. Say to my soul, “I am your salvation.”  Psalm 35:1-3 (NKJV)


Ask God for His hedge of protection:

"In You, O Lord, I put my trust; Let me never be put to shame.
Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape; Incline Your ear to me, and save me.

Be my strong refuge, To which I may resort continually
You have given the commandment to save me, For You are my rock and my fortress

Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, Out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man" Psalm 71:1-4 (NKJV)


[Satan accused God,] "Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land"  JOB 1:10 (NKJV)


Declare the victory of the Lord:

You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord." Isaiah 54:17(NKJV)


Declare that God’s promises and will cannot fail:

"So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it
." Isaiah 55:11 (NKJV)

" For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways
In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone

Spiritual warfare against the stronghold of the mind:

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ"  2 COR 10:3-5 (NKJV)
