“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” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5).
The enemy of God and of His kingdom attempts to set up strongholds, unholy barriers against God’s people, His church, and anything advancing the knowledge of God in this world. The devil does not want people to know the Lord Jesus! He does not mind if they know something about God in general, but not about the Lord Jesus Christ! These strongholds must be brought down with the spiritual weapons of the Word, Prayer and the Authority of the believer.
As a child of God you must do warfare from a position of rest and victory found in Christ alone. You must be sure in your mind that your Commander, the Lord Jesus Christ, has totally defeated the ‘strong man’ satan, on the Cross. Any doubt in the absolute Lordship of Christ weakens your faith and you will not be able to conquer new territories for The Kingdom of God. The battle is first of all internal before you can make progress in the natural realm. You must identify the enemy within, attack and defeat the demons of fear and doubt in particular. For that, you need to be filled with the Holy Spirit. You need to repent of any known sin, for the Holy Spirit does not fill ‘dirty’ vessels. Filled with God’s Spirit inside, taking the whole armor of God outside, you are now ready for battle and the victory is sure. I testify to this!
Question: how long since you have personally experienced a new triumph, since you have obtained a fresh testimony of successful spiritual warfare and a clear victory in any area of your life? A spiritual passive attitude is a sign of bondage! Now it it the time to stand for Christ! Dear child of God, this morning I pray for courage for you! Trust and obey God! Prove that the Word of God is living and true! Arise and shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you!
