Gearing up for battle

“Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of His explosive power flowing in and through you.” (Eph. 6:10)

So dive into the Word, friend. Proclaim Him in song & claim His promises. Press into His Presence in praise & prayer. Listen for His voice throughout the day. Invite Him into every moment to help you walk out the day with His help. Offer love and compassion to those in need. Be quick to release offence and extend forgiveness. Pray for greater faith and blessing to be released as you intercede for the healing of the sick, the hurting, and freedom for the captives. Take every thought captive and bring it to Him for direction. Stand in victory at His side as you learn the who, what, where, when and how of spiritual warfare from the Master. And don’t forget to armor and weapon up!

“Put on God’s complete set of armor provided for us, so that you will be protected as you fight against the evil strategies of the accuser! Your hand to hand combat is not with human beings, but with the highest principalities and authorities operating in rebellion under the heavenly realms. For they are a powerful class of demons and evil spirits that hold this dark world on bondage. Because of this, you must wear all the armor that God provides so you’re protected as you confront the slandered, for YOU ARE DESTINED FOR ALL THINGS AND WILL RISE VICTORIOUS.” (Eph. 6:11-13, details of the armor outlined in vs 14-18)

“And take the mighty razor sharp Spirit sword of the spoken word of God. Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all His believers.” (Eph 6:18, our spiritual weaponry)

“And I pray they He would unveil within you the unlimited riches of His glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with His divine might and explosive power.” (Eph. 3:16)

We know how the story ends, friend. God will be the sole and rightful Victor over the enemy, and equips us to win the skirmishes until that day!
