The enemy’s war on singleness

Read Time3 Minute, 57 Second

Do you know that there is a war on Singleness just as there is a war on marriages?

Satan constantly spreads lies to single people trying to convince them that they are unwanted outcasts who did something wrong to be in the position of a single. This lie sends many people on a desperate chase after relationships trying to obtain acceptance. 

The truth of the matter is that singleness is as much a gift as marriage is. Granted, the benefits are different, but both are still fruitful and pleasing to God.  1 Corinthians 7:32-34 says that an unmarried woman can fully focus on pleasing God while a married woman’s concerns are divided between serving God and serving her family. Both women honor God in their respective place but the offerings differ. The gift of singleness is this: that one can devote mind, body, and soul to pleasing Christ IMPARTIALLY. What that means is that since we don’t have to engage our flesh to please a husband or serve children we can constantly be engaged spiritually in fellowship with God.
We have to realize that as a single our husband is God. He’s the one we are yoked to. We are one with Him in spirit and surrendered to him in the flesh. When two cows are yoked together they follow each other everywhere. They walk in step with each other as if they were ONE cow. This is what is expected of us as well. We are to walk in step with God, obeying His commands and fulfilling His desires for our life.

If you are single, you are strategically positioned as a single to fulfill God’s will for the current season. Satan knows that if he can convince you that you are lonely and forgotten then you’ll be insecure enough to leave the path of obedience, patience, and purity to “catch up” to those who are in relationships. When you are in obedience and alignment you are EXACTLY where God wants us to be. Satan is after your confidence and contentment. He doesn’t want you to be satisfied with Christ alone. He wants you searching for love and identity in the flesh. He wants you settling for toxic relationships so that you’ll be burdened with stress and anxiety.

YOU ARE UNDER ATTACK SISTER! How will you respond? I encourage you to agree with me and speak this declaration over your life. Next review the scriptures listed below to keep you encourage as you wrestle the enemy back to the pit.

Declaration Over Singleness

Right Now in the name of Jesus I bind every demonic spirit that accuses you and tempts you towards discontentment, depression, dysfunction, loneliness, lowliness, sexual immorality, and settling. I cancel every attack on your singleness and drive out every spirit of lust and perversion. I lose the spirit of contentment, patience, love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, forbearance and self-control over you. I declare that you shall prosper in your singleness even as your soul prospers!
Despite what has happened in the past or even this year so far, I stand with each and every one of you and declare that this year will be a year of purity, power, purpose, progress, production, prayer, faithfulness, fruitfulness, favor, fervency, joy, peace, laughter, love, liberty, loyalty, increase, integrity, trustworthiness, triumph, victory, glory, grit, grace, righteousness and revelation. In Jesus Holy Name, we call it so! AMEN!!!

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me, ” Says the Lord.” – Isaiah 54:1.

“Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” – Matthew 18:18.

But I want you to be without care. He who is unmarried cares for the things of the Lord—how he may please the Lord. 33 But he who is married cares about the things of the world—how he may please his wife. 34 There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit. But she who is married cares about the things of the world—how she may please her husband. 35 And this I say for your own profit, not that I may put a leash on you, but for what is proper, and that you may serve the Lord without distraction. – 1 Corinthians 7:32-35
