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.
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.
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.
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.
