OK. We’re at the end of our journey of discovering our weapons. I know it’s been quite a mouthful, but I believe that God wants us to know who we are in Him and how we should rightfully defend and fight for what He has promised us.
The bottom line is this: We are warriors. The moment we get this, I think life as we know it will be over. We don’t need to cry desperately when we’ve lost things or people… We don’t need to put up with certain attacks because the enemy throws them at us. We have to take our stand as God’s elect on this earth. The realm of the spirit is engaged in a spiritual war, a real spiritual war and it’s over the things that God has promised to His Sons. Remember that Satan fell from his original position and everything that God blessed him with (the ability to worship and glorify God in everything done), is now given to us. The devil cannot like you. You took his birthright! So understand that your days and nights, your past and future has and will continue to be messed with for one single purpose: So that the enemy can take you out. If he can take you out by making you fall into depression, financial struggles, sickness, or whatever, he will do just that.
You simply cannot allow him to ruin your life, your husband’s life, your children’s lives. You have to engage in the battle. You may ask “why do I need to fight if God is already fighting for me?” It’s a great question. The host of heaven is backing you. But the greatest secret is that they take their commands from their Chief Commander…and He makes those commands based on your actions and what you tell Him. He cannot operate outside of your choice for your life. Choice is the one thing He gave us. So if you choose.to continue in depression, there is nothing He can do. So how do you act in synchronization with God? Let’s recap what your weapons:
1.Weapon of Praise-Don’t be attacked by depression. Fight it!
2.The Weapon in your Mouth (your tongue)-Use your tongue to destroy the enemy’s stronghold and to create what you want to see in your life.
3.The weapon of the Word- your sword. Every mighty soldier needs a sword. Slice and dice the enemy with the Word of God.
4. The weapon of Righteousness-Your armor. You go into battle with the Blood of the Lamb. Know that you have been made righteous.
5.The weapon of Silence-Don’t be attacked by frivolous and futile people. Say this” I am purpose driven individual and I refuse to be disturbed or distracted by insignificant people.
6. The weapon of Truth- Fight the enemy with Truth. Not fact.
7. The weapon of Focus: Focus your sword and all other weapons on one demonic attack and take it down.
8. The weapon of Fasting: take your orders from Chief Commander. Open up your frequency for clear transmission, and once He speaks, act. You two must be in tune with each other.
I will tell you a secret. One of the reasons I write, is because I have gone through a lot of stuff. Stuff that many people don’t know. I know what it is to be kicked to the ground, and when not even sure how to get up, to get kicked again. Depression? Been there. Broken hearted? Been there too. Mentally debilitated, physically sick, “not a penny to my name” used to be my middle names. But I realize that those were the things that the enemy did to destroy my calling, and what God had planned for me. And if I did not engage, my death was sure> I say all of this to let you know that I know what you’re facing, because I’ve been there. But I’ve learned that the only way to get out of Lodebar, is to fight. Get up, out of your misery and determine that you will not stay where you are. That you will not sit by and wimp out while your relationships, your marriage, your person is under attack.
I like what the prodigal son said when He came to his senses:
How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father- Luke 15: 17
God has a kingdom for his children that is rich with happiness, blessings and more. But we have to come to our senses. We have to realize that there is a real enemy trying to block that and we have to fight him.
So mighty Man/Woman of Valor, Pick yourself up with whatever little courage you have, and fight. Your victory is secure.
