In the Heat of the Battle
There are times the attack of the enemy in our lives is veracious and unrelenting.  It may even feel as if you are about to be defeated and that there is no hope.
Be encouraged today. Stand on the truth of God’s word and put on the full armour spoken of in Ephesians 6.
Remind yourself today the day battle is not personal! It is demonic.
This is not about people, no matter how bad the conflict may seem.  The enemy uses people submitted to him, but our battle is not against the person, it’s against spiritual forces in heavenly places.
The weapons we use are not fleshly, but divine instruments of faith and authority.
“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” (2 Cor 10:4,5)
Use the weapons God has given you, let His divine power surround and anoint you.
  1. The Sword of the Spirit. The declaration and faith in the power of God’s word disarms the enemy, ensuring his attempts to dislodge, discourage and defeat us, to nothing!
    “No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
    And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
    You shall condemn.
    This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
    And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.”
    (Isaiah 54:17)
  2. Remember the Battle belongs to the Lord. When we put our trust in Him, He will fight for us.
    “And he said, “Listen, all  of you … “Thus says the Lord to you, ‘Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed at this great horde, for the battle is not yours but God’s.” (2 Chron 20:15)
  3. Praise releases an Atomic explosion against enemy forces! When you are feeling weak and discouraged, then it’s time to lift your voice in high praise and change the atmosphere of fear and doubt!! Your praise will ensure the enemy flees and brings great destruction within demonic camps. (Ps 149:5-9 TPT) “The lovers of God triumph in the glory of God, and their joyful praises will rise even while others sleep. God’s high and holy praises fill their mouths, for their shouted praises are their weapons of war!
These warring weapons will bring vengeance on every opposing force and every resistant power— to bind kings with chains and rulers with iron shackles. Praise-filled warriors will enforce the judgment-doom decreed against their enemies.
This is the glorious honour He gives to all his Godly lovers.
Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!
Meditate on Gods Word today, read Ps 122:1-8.
Our help and defence is from God, so be at peace and trust in Him. Declare: “God is with me, for me and surrounds me with His power and protection! I cannot lose, God has already won the battle!”
