We have been given everything we need, including the necessary weapons to be Victorious in all areas of our lives! This is good news, yes the Gospel. We have all we need to defeat every enemy, everytime! The questions is why do we continue to be defeated in our lives? Well because we don’t use the weapons we were given. Or, we aren’t sure how to use them.

We have been given Mighty Weapons; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NKJ)
 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,  casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
 
What are these weapons?

The Word of God
A most powerful weapon. The Word says God’s Word  will not return void. Where ever you send this weapon, it will prosper.

The Name of Jesus
Everything ! EVERYTHING, even demons MUST bow to this Name.

Prayer
James 5:16b  The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. Prayer makes great power available to us.
*The prayer of agreement, where two are in agreement it is done.

Our Mouth
We speak forth the Word of God and the darkness must flee! We tell the devil to go and he must submit. Yes. The devil must obey our words.
*There is life and death in the power of our tongue.

We have the use of God’s mighty weapons,not the mere worldly weapons, to knock down the devils strongholds. Our weapons are not of this world ~ they are mighty, they are to be used to have the victory over every enemy in life. However, we must know how to use them.

The bible provides instruction for the use of these weapons. We must study and practice the use of these tools.

2 Timothy 2:15
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
Psalm 18:34
He teaches my hands to make war. So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

If we we seek His face, He will teach us to wage war against our enemy ~ however, You MUST seek Him. We have all the weapons we need. God the Father will show us what weapons to use and how to use them ~ if we ask. God will liberally give us wisdom ~ even wisdom for battle. Our weapons are much more powerful then anything the enemy has.

Do Not stand in defeat with these weapons in your arsenal ~ unused!

Study for the knowledge and understanding, in the Spirit, of these weapons. Use them. You will then stand amazed at the power of Christ in you, in your mouth ~ adequate for the Victory, everytime.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
