in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,

Ephesians 2:2 NKJV

Our theme verse talks about the spirit who works on the sons of disobedience. He refers to him as the prince of the power of the air. Just as the Holy Spirit is at work in us, who are sons of obedience in Christ, also, there's a spirit that moves men in the lifestyle of disobedience to God. And this spirit is referred to by apostle Paul here as the prince of the power of the air. 

The term "power of the air" is synonymous to a domineering influence in an atmosphere. So in other words, spirits can exact their influence in a given atmosphere, and cause people within that atmosphere or space to behave in a certain way.

Remember the prince of Persia who angel Gabriel encountered on his way to meet Daniel. (Daniel 10:13,20). That was a spirit, a principality, who was exacting his influence over the atmosphere of Persia. He was the prince of the power of the air of Persia. Sometimes it can be over a city, a community or even a neighborhood or work space.

Whatever the case may be, the point is that, we must learn to dominate such dark influences. Don't allow the influence in an atmosphere get the better of you. You can't do this by physical strength or wisdom. It takes walking in the Spirit. Live a life of prayer consistently, and be filled with the word, then fill the clouds in your atmosphere with your words of faith. They all empty liberty over your environment. Glory to God!

Affirmation: I thank you dear Father, for you have given me the Holy Spirit, who raised the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead, to live in me. I speak freedom and liberty over my environment, over my space, over my nation. Dark forces and demons are cut off in the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen. Glory to God!
