How to Overcome the Spirit of Intimidation | Prophetic word by Jamie Rohrbaugh |

Beloved, do you struggle with getting intimidated by the things you need to get done? If so, you’re in the middle of spiritual warfare–and you are actually facing the spirit of intimidation.

But you know what? In Christ Jesus, you can overcome the spirit of intimidation!

    I was praying about this recently and I heard the Lord say:

    “You have been intimidated for too long, and I desire to help you break free from that.

    You may not know it, but the spirit of intimidation is one of the most successful strategies the enemy has launched against you. You have been giving in to it for years. However, the access that the spirit of intimidation has into your life ENDS today if you will heed Me and obey what I tell you.

    Intimidation will rob you of three important things if you listen to it:

    1. It will rob you of your boldness.
    2. It will rob you of the great exploits that I desire you to do.
    3. It will rob you of your peace, for it keeps you from doing things that need to be done–and thereby stresses you out.

    A lack of peace will then rob you of your health, your encouragement, your enthusiasm, and even your self-control.

    Intimidation is a slippery slope. It is not one of the enemy’s smaller minions; it is a principality that should have no access into your life whatever, but is one of the most destructive forces the enemy has launched against My church.

    But I can free you from intimidation, and I will if you will listen to Me.

    First, you need to understand that the spirit of intimidation partners with fear. However, I have not given you a spirit of fear–but of POWER, LOVE, and a SOUND MIND. Remember this; stand firm in faith in My Word.

    Next, know that intimidation tries to show you the worst-case scenario. The principality of intimidation tries to tell you that things will be bad, bad, bad. It tries to convince you that everything will be hard; that you will lose; that you will go under. 

    Nevertheless, have I not told you that you will have good success if you listen and obey My Word?

    Have I not told you that you will go over, and not under? Have I not told you that I will help you; that I will never leave you nor forsake you? Have I not guaranteed your success?

    And, do I not work AND WIN, even in the darkest hour? I tell you, I do; I have; and I will!

    My Word is the first key to overcoming the spirit of intimidation.

    You must hide My Word in your heart as it pertains to your success, My help, and Our victory–for My victory is yours in My Son Jesus!

    This means whatever you do shall prosper. It means in whatever you undertake, you shall win. And it means that I will be with you to help you, giving you grace that even makes hard things easy–IF you will believe Me for it.

    From His Presence giving portals |

    You also need to understand the second key to overcoming the spirit of intimidation.

    The second key to overcoming the spirit of intimidation is found in Zechariah 4:6-7, which says:

    “So he answered and said to me: ‘This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel:

    ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts. ‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!'”

    Nothing you do is by your own power anyway; without Me you can literally do nothing. My grace is what makes it all happen!

    Therefore, does it make any sense to be intimidated by large things? I–the same God who helps you breathe–am with you to help you do small things and big things alike!

    Big things and small things are all alike to Me; they take no more of My exertion than creating a galaxy does. My power is limitless; nothing can tax it or strain it.

    Nothing can tax or strain My power in you, either.

    The only time you can be taxed or strained is when you take your eyes off Me. Remember Peter, who was well able to do the miraculous–walking on water–as long as He kept His eyes on My Son Jesus. But what happened when he removed his eyes from My Son? He sank!

    You know that story well, but you have not put the pieces together before now. I–the same God who empowered Peter to walk on water–am in you right now, and I am here to do everything through you today that needs to be done. I am here inside you right now to do even the miraculous!

    So much of the practical life of power is already in you. The pieces you have lacked are:

    • An understanding of the enemy’s attack against you;
    • An acknowledgement that you have not yet grasped My Word to help you in this area; and 
    • A total focus and concentration on ME in you, instead of looking at the thing about which the enemy is trying to intimidate you.

    My child, I need you to recalibrate your paradigm.

    Instead of thinking that something is going to be bad, believe that it will be good. Believe My Word that I will help you. Believe that it will be easy–and that I will make it so, even if a thing would be difficult to anyone else.

    My beloved, I am with you to keep you.

    I will not suffer your foot to slip. This means that intimidation and the spirit of intimidation truly have no place in you. Rise up, My beloved, and become who you are: a supernatural being, My child, filled with My light, love, and power.

    Rise up and refuse to be intimidated any longer. Arise and eat; taste and see that I am good; you are blessed because you trust in Me (Psalm 34:8)!

    Go forth and PROSPER IN POWER!

    Love, Abba God, your Heavenly Daddy.”

    Thank You, Abba Father!

    1. Absolutely for me. This confirms the dream I had this morning as well as the devotional time with God and even my journal notes from yesterday. Even my verse this AM was “there is no fear in love” concerning the lie that God doesn’t love and that I deserve the fear I’m feeling. Also, Holy Spirit told me months ago that Satan was using fear and intimidation on me and I remember writing down that I have to meditate on 2 Timothy 1:7 but never did it. Sigh. This war has definitely gone on long enough.

      1. Oh and 1 Peter 5:10 – 12 was also ministered to me and Romans 15:4. AMP version says of the first verse, STAND FIRM in God’s grace.

        Thank you for this post!

      2. Tamara Leiann Chappell says:

        Such a powerful word. Right on time.

      3. That sounds like me .wrote it down and didn’t do it . Double sigh .
        This was encouraging .
        I’m writing a the verses to meditate on even setting aside time to just meditate .pray I’ll do it. I’m bring coached in a business I can’t possibly do without God
        It’s all for Gods glory and building his kingdom .
        Blessings to you Jamie.

    2. irene jones says:

      Amen get out of my prayer closet on time word for me. I been dealing with this.

    3. I literally just walked away from an intimidating moment in which I kept silence the truth that was in my heart. I walked back to my desk and God said “you were just intimidated”. God said that because I had just had a conversation earlier this morning about how the church has been intimidated into silence in this hour and we needed our boldness back. He is trying to tell us that it is him that backs us up. It is his spirit that will speak through us. It is the vine that provides the life. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of OUR testimony. No matter what tries to intimidate us….God cannot fail!

    4. Katherine Stickroth says:

      Thank you for identifying for me what has been holding me back in my walk with the Lord.

    5. Ms Sherly D says:

      No more tears of regret and shame. The turmoil within me, kept rising since yesterday, and in my prayer time God gave me 2 Timothy 1:7.God has not given me a spirit of fear, but Love power and strong mind. Yet, this morning, I fell victim to uncertainty and no self confidence. Troubled, I couldnit even pray this morning, and I opened my mail only to read My Loving Caring Daddy speak thru you.. Giving me all that it needs to rise up and be A Righteous and Victorious child of God.. This was purely a love letter for me. Its been my saving grace. Praise God. I love you my God I Adore you my God. Thank you Jesus love you Jesus.
      Thank you Sister Jamie, you are God’s special and blessed child.. Keep up your work.. Of reaching out to people, edifying them with God’s word.. 🙂

      1. Jeanine Kincheloe says:

        Same for me, too. Right in time.

    6. Thank you again Jamie!

    7. I received this message in the name of Jesus

    8. Shavon T Magee says:

      This word is for me. I ‘m battling intimidation both at home and at work. Thank you for this chain breaking word.

    9. Am extremely grateful for the message from the Almighty creator of the heavens and earth…. thanks alot and be blessed.

    10. Wow Jamie, this word is from the Lord! A word in due season for me! I’m in the mist of a battle with this spirit of intimidation, it wasn’t up until few weeks ago that the Lord revealed to me that I was contending with this spirit.
      What opened my eyes was that I suddenly found a close relation to the word intimate ( yikes) I do not want to be in intimate relationship with a disgusting evil spirit!
      My issue with intimidation comes from a childhood trauma, I was deeply embarrassed and as a result I developed bad anxiety 😞when in any kind of conflict or when I have to speak even in an audience of 3.
      This evil spirit has stolen so much from me! But it is over! The Lord has exposed its schemes and it will flee from my life in the Name of Jesus! I can feel the intensity of this stronghold! The Lord will brake its back!

    11. I recieve these words in Jesus’ name 🙌 God called out 2 Timothy 1:7 to me years ago. I repeat it daily. Today I will call out “intimidation be gone in the name of Jesus” Blessings to you Jamie for having blessed me ❤

    12. Nadia Slater says:

    13. This is great and encouraging. Jamie I have been dreaming of dead people intimidating me for years.

      Powerful and precise! Thank you Jsmie. I receive the word in Jesus name.

    27. Thanks Jamie!
      In the email that you sent this link in you asked, “Do you struggle with procrastination?” but in this post you only said, “do you struggle with getting intimidated by the things you need to get done?” Thank you for revealing that the spirit behind procrastination is often this spirit of intimidation!! I think Intimidation’s little evil brother is Overwhelm, another “reason” many people give for procrastination.
      But, we rebuke you all, in Jesus name! Intimidation, Overwhelm, and their cousin Indicisiveness, we command you to GO!! Procrastination and all your causes, we bind you NOW, and we loose power, energy, stamina, self-discipline, and decisiveness to accomish all our tasks and projects by the authority given to us by Jesus Christ, our Lord!!! AMEN🙏 ❣

    28. Hearer Must Doer says:

      This helped remind me of instances where the spirit of intimidation was used intentionally by certain people in the occult with the hopes to keep me at bay, make me feel worthless, or with the goal of driving me to have low self esteem. They do not know who I am and to whom I belong. Sure there have been times that I can’t remember in detail now where I’ve blindly come against intimidation or fear tactics to deter me from the course I was to take. Though it was not my intent to be deterred, but there was such a control over the whole psyche that the best thing sometimes to do when not covered is to avoid a situation, until built up and covered to dealing with it. For example, there is a woman that wears the same clothing everyday, & without fail she will be along my path no matter when I decide to go out. It used to be that whenever I sat at this desk at any given time, and look out the window, and there she would be pacing, or go back and forth down the street. I sensed a level of demonic activity that I am not ready to deal with, so I cross over like the priest who saw the robbed and beaten, dying man on the side of the street. If that’s the demonic realm intimidating me to not set her free, then that’s what it is and I’m in no shape to go deal with those demons by myself.
      I do know this, that those who surveil me are also surveilling her, & whenever I go out they know, so they control her psyche, mind & emotions so that she feels the need to go stand on the street any time I go out. There are a few people that seem to show up everytime I go out or when I sit at the desk. It’s becomes really irritating at times. Then there’s the repeat of vehicles that have high exhaust fumes that will always go by whenever I make a turn or try to avoid a street that is very busy, so I can get clean air. Well, no matter which way I go, there’s always one or two to meet me at every turn so I’m always breathing unclean air. I discovered why that is. The witch that is watching me is intimidated by the Christ in me, so she wants me to get cancer, and be removed from being a threat to her satanic ministry. People know the science behind our bodies. They know that being exposed to certain chemicals, fumes, radiation, cigarette smoke etc. will bring about denaturing of dna and cancer, so they call it forth- toxins, poisons, fumes etc.
      Some used to yell at me to intimidate me & hope that I would shrivel in the background and cower in fear, but I only held my tongue because of the demonic activity around. Otherwise I would be shouting out from the rooftops on a loud speaker what the wicked are doing to me behind the scenes. May the spirit of intimidation, fear & rejection be put to shame at the feet of the One who was whipped, scourged, crowned with thorns, spat upon, disgraced, stripped of His dignity, nailed to a Cross, died and who rose again making an open show of the defeated works of death, hell and the grave. Shall death intimidate me now. Death has robbed me of my precious bunny. Shall I consent when all around me looks grim and hopeless. Oh! No! Kick it to the curb. Give the spirit of intimidation the kick to the curb. In fact, let’s play ball with the spirit of intimidation. I’ll give it a boot to the goal post which is the Cross of Christ. Let’s see what intimidation will do then, seeing that some of its kind was cast into a herd of swine and they all ran to their death.

    29. Amen thank you God for this confirmation 🙏🏾🙌🏾.

    30. Bantshang says:

      Hi Jamie! God is not a man that He can lie. He is not the son of man that he can repent from what He has said. I pray for protection and deliverance of me and my family from fetish and native powers and control. My life has been sold to a certain fetish priest in Africa. My nude pictures have been taken there by a group of African false prophets for him to destroy my life and entire generation. I was dragged out of my house in the past by witches and stripped me naked. They have done a lot of wickedness to me but I never saw it in the physical. I only saw part of what they have done to me in ďreams and visions.

    31. Amen, thank you Lord for giving me strength and grace standing on your word, I claim freedom from the spirit of intimidation and fear for it is written in 2 Timothy 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. I decree and decree I have a sound mind, my old pattern thinking is gone I am a new creation in Christ in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen and Amen.

    32. Chelsea Slade says:

      I have been feeling defeated as I am working on my finals for school and I have experienced a certain kind of fear that led me to believe negative things about my ability to complete assignments that I know I
      capable to accomplish. I have let my problems become bigger than God and tried to keep him out of assisting me. The Holy Spirit provided revelation into what I was experiencing and said that it was intimidation. I am aware of intimidation in the natural realm but never looked at it in the spiritual realm. I was then led to this page and I feel so relieved. I come into agreement with this word and declare that the spirit of intimidation has no power over me in Jesus’ name. I will think positive and accept the Lords help and believe that He will work through me to get anything I’m facing done

    33. I’ve been so out of whack lately, and this is just what I needed; Psalm 94:18 jumped out at me too, He comforted me with it last night when I was a mess. Praise God!
      “When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.”

    34. This was a word for me, I dont know why but i d0 get intimidated easily God is always on time and spot on thankyou for this powerful prophetic word it was very much needed be blessed Jamie

    35. Thank you for this word of encouragement

    36. Marilyn Bucci says:

      Woo hoo you have just gave me eyes to see the enemies attack!Thank you so much.

    37. Thank you for this word. This is totally for me. Everything that I read speaks to me. I believe the Lord is telling me to rise up above all that I’m facing. God’s word says, I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Praise the Lord.

    38. Lynn Dananay says:

      Thank you for these beautiful and powerful words! Thank you Father! I’m feeling dry right now but still praising God!

    39. WOW, WOW, WOW!!! God is faithful and comes through to help His children when they cry out to Him.
      Jamie, your word has confirmed and given a name to everything that God was telling me last night before I went to bed. For the entire night, it felt like I was restless and struggling with something in my body. At some point, I suddenly felt a breath of air in my nostrils and woke up. I felt an instant release from the struggling and the term spirit if intimidation was put on my heart. I googled spirit of intimidation and came across your post which has confirmed that God has delivered me from that vile spirit because I had meditated on all the scriptures you mentioned in your post the day before as I was contending with what was troubling me! Thank you for your faithfulness in allowing God to work through you. I pray for all the blessings He has stored up for you and yours to be manifest in Jesus’ mighty name!

      1. Wow! Philip! Thank you for letting us know. May I suggest that you get my book/ebook on this topic–Victory In the Camp of the Lord, Volume 1: Healing from Fear–if you have not already done so? It will help you as it covers all the info about how to be made perfect in love by internalizing God’s love for you in practical steps. You can find that here: if interested!
        Thank you so much for reading, and for your testimony!
