When God has delivered your enemies into your hands. Do not lord it over them. Do not hold them hostage with guilt, or torment them with shame. For what? At this point, the Lord has already given you the victory! Remember, you are not warring against them. You are warring against a spirit that they have allowed to take them captive for the purposes of carrying out our TRUE enemy’s plots and plan against your life. When God has delivered your enemies into your hands, and they are at your mercy, PRAY, PRAISE, FORGIVE, MINISTER, BLESS, AND RELEASE. For we do not war against flesh and blood, but against the works and powers of the ultimate enemy–Satan.
2 Kings 6:15-23 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. 16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 18 As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike this army with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked. 19 Elisha told them, “This is not the road and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will lead you to the man you are looking for.” And he led them to Samaria. 20 After they entered the city, Elisha said, “Lord, open the eyes of these men so they can see.” Then the Lord opened their eyes and they looked, and there they were, inside Samaria. 21 When the king of Israel saw them, he asked Elisha, “Shall I kill them, my father? Shall I kill them?” 22 “Do not kill them,” he answered. “Would you kill those you have captured with your own sword or bow? Set food and water before them so that they may eat and drink and then go back to their master.”23 So he prepared a great feast for them, and after they had finished eating and drinking, he sent them away, and they returned to their master. So the bands from Aram stopped raiding Israel’s territory.
