“The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty to the pulling down of strong holds….”–2 Corinthians 10:14
It’s hard when you think your not getting anywhere.
You keep facing the same problems, the same issuses and you keep trying, and trying and trying. But you keep failing. You keep making mistakes. And you seem to make it worse.
You keep thinking this is not working. I have tried everything to fix this problem and it’s like nothing seems to work!
You want to give up.
It can be challenging to battle on our own.
God teaches how to do battle (Psalm 28:41; Psalm 144:1).
It says in 2 Corinthians 10:14, the weapons of our warfare are what we use to attack, cut off, annihalte and clear out your problems, our opposition and those things that consume and pressure us.
We are to do combat with the lies and schemes and attacks of all sorts from Satan.
Do you think you use your hands to fight these battles?
Go about cutting off the lies of Satan using our minds?
God gives us the tools necessary to cut down our Goliath’s, crumble our mountains, cut off the works of Satan. And this powerful, double edged sword that gives us victory over all the devices of Satan is The Word of God that trumps all evil things.
God leads us through His Word so we can fight. God gives us the wisdom, instructions, insights, revelations to destroy the catastrophes in our life.
God leads us to exact scriptures in His Word to declare and confess over your circumstances, problems, and at the enemy so you will overcome satan and have the victory.
For many of us we began using the wrong weapons. For me, it was my own will power and strength. Mental and physical effort that does not translate or work or last when it comes to spiritual battles.
That is why, we are not ignorant to his device’s. God tells us everything!
In Mark 4, our Lord goes into detail about the different tactics Satan can use to take the Word of God and faith of God out of us.
The tactics of Satan:
Satan immeditely steals the word of God and faith from your heart. You may even not have enough time for it to sink into your heart. He gets in there to take it so it can not take root.
Persuction: Problems, pressure, ridicule and from other people.
Affliction: Problems and pressure coming from life. For example, sickness and disease, financial collapse and family strife.
Distractions: Cares, worries, anxieties that come from the everyday that choke, and crowd God’s Words and faith.
All these things cause us to derail from God’s Will, be discouraged, and faced with the same exact trials and complications in life.
Truth is, God will help you! He will give you the grace, and power you need by The Holy Spirit to fight, and win this battle.
God’s Holy Spirit will give comfort and peace to you and I in our moments of despair and in the battle (2 Corinthians 1:3-5).
In battle, God gives you and I His Almighty Spirit to intercede for us before His throne when you we do not know what to pray for to conquer our battles.
“And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will” (Romans 8:26-27, NLT).
God gives us strength to endure, push through and conquer the attacks and negative circumstances that we face.
He gave us His Love to assure us that He will make everything work togetherfor our good regardless of what kind of challenges, attacks or dilemma’s.
For I am convinced as well:
“that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).
You are going to overcome.
I command you to give God your hands, soul, Spirit, and mind to be strong in the Lord so He can strengthen you and give you the victory in The Authority of Jesus’s Mighty Name!
God bless you dear ones,
I love you, have a good night.
