The historical accounts of healing and deliverance as contained in the gospels and in the book of Acts, serve as our “playbook”. Read and pray and notate revelation the Holy Spirit gives. He is your teacher and guide. Again, the value of your first hand experience with the Spirit’s instruction cannot be overly stressed.
It is so important to take heed to an account described in Acts 19. There were some Jewish “exorcists” and some other guys, seven of them, who were the sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest. They thought that all they had to do was “say the words” that they had heard the Apostle Paul and others say, in order to cast out demons. They were absolutely mistaken, and were badly beaten up and defeated. They only knew ABOUT Jesus, they didn’t actually know Him.
Also, it is very important to ask the Holy Spirit to search your heart to see if lurking in there are some fears and/or unresolved issues that might serve as “feeding ground” for demonic attack. I can tell you that demons, like vultures, feed on flesh and raw emotions that have not been healed. These include, fear, jealousy, bitterness and more. Please be honest with yourself. It will not be beneficial to anyone or to yourself to not address heart issues.
