Spiritual discipline includes cultivating the patience to wait for doors to open with a word of God’s wisdom on what to do, or not do, in the meantime. But when it comes to the enemy’s wiles, we do not wait. When it comes to the enemy, we deny him entrance, taking authority over open doors and possessing every gate.  

We are the seed of Abraham, the innumerable descendants destined to “possess the gates of their enemies.” Abraham’s relatives, sending Rebekah to become Isaac’s wife, blessed her, declaring these exact words: “And may your descendants possess the gates of those who hate them.” 

In daily life we experience enemy spirits, but each must first gain entrance to affect us. Instead of yielding to that opening—that gate—possess it! Your covenant with God includes authority over every gate. You have governing authority to open and close them! 

Take authority! Remove the thing that does not belong in your life. 

Now, close the door.
