The weapons of our warfare – Part 1
Ephesians 6:10-13; 2 Kings3: 24-27.
Many Christians are not enjoying Christianity the way they should because of their approach to circumstances. This life is spiritual, and we are fighting a fight of faith. The Bible says, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness in this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
One of the weapons to use in our fight of faith is:
• The weapon of sacrificial giving
There are different keys to different doors. To experience the unimaginable, you’ll have to do some sacrificial giving. Remember the story of Solomon in the Bible. In the place where others gave God one ram, he sacrificed one thousand rams, which caused God to visit him. Sacrificial giving provokes the anointing; it makes angels to begin to act on your behalf. If what you give to God doesn’t mean much to you, it wouldn’t mean much to Him either, David said: “… neither will I offer to God of that which doth cost me nothing… ” 2Samuel 24:24. Because he understood this principle.
The desire to give sacrificial might not come all by itself, so you must practise it. Many disciples sold their lands and properties and brought the money to the apostles’ feet, but only Barnabas was mentioned by name (Acts 4:36) because he gave God his best.
• The next weapon is connecting to your pastor or prophet
Many people are yet to understand the importance of connecting to their Man Of God. Your Man Of God is the one God has sent to help your life become better. The Bible says, “believe the Lord your God, so shall you be established, believe His Prophets so shall you prosper.” Your property lies in the hand of your spiritual father. God can give you the solutions to your challenges through your Man Of God.
We will be looking at another weapon, which is:
• The weapon of the mouth
God didn’t give you your mouth to eat alone, but He gave you your mouth to make decrees and chart your course through life. Proverbs 18:21 says, “death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” Do you know that as a child of God what becomes of your life is entirely up to you? You may not know it but every time you speak, you shape your life and future to either synchronise with God’s divine provisions for you, or be at variance with it.
Stop talking about your problems; rather, declare your glorious life in Christ. Declare how you want things to be, in line with the word. Don’t wait for anyone to do it for you; by your own words, chart your course. Take charge of your life. Acts 2:17 says, “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and daughters shall prophecy…”
Prophesy about your life future. Prophesy to your bone, your body, your skin, your blood, your finances, job, business, academics, etc. Don’t wait for the world or circumstances to decide and dictate what happens to you, use these weapons.
