We shall be like a David, and perform the way he did by running toward his enemy. He ran toward his enemy, in the name of the Lord of Hosts… he told Goliath that the Lord does not deliver by sword or by spear, for the battle is the Lord’s, and that is whose name we will come in. We will not come in fear, and doubt; we will come in the name of the Lord of Hosts at our enemies... wielding the sword of the spirit.
Friends, we allow the devil to take us captive every day, because we don’t know who we are in Christ. Or, I should say Who we belong to. I believe this is a big problem in the world today. In this message, I will share with you who you are in Christ Jesus, and the power and authority that He has bestowed upon us. I want to counter some of those lies that the devil has been feeding you about what you can, and cannot do. And put your foot on the devil for good.
The Lord impressed upon me that we are ALL in a Spiritual Battle and it is Warfare. The Christian life is a Battleground, it's not a Playground, and there is an enemy to fight and conquer, and territory to gain for the Lord. Know that God has given us Authority and Dominion here on this earth to withstand any tactic that the devil brings on us.
Friends, there was a movie in 1985 called The Equalizer… it was about a man who at one time was a highly trained operative with the government, and he was now retired and set himself up to help those that couldn’t help themselves... the ones that the odds were against. Well, that’s exactly what The Word of God does for us. It becomes our Equalizer. God also puts us in a safe place too. He said only a spectator shall you be as you witness the reward of the wicked. Hallelujah!
When God is with you, it is impossible for anyone to defeat you. God lays out His promises in His Word. What promises has God spoken into your heart? What are you believing God for in your life?
Trials and tests come, but let’s consider Abraham’s faith.
Yet he (Abraham) did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, 21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.Romans 4:20,21 (NIV)
Think about this. How do you think Abraham kept from wavering? It says he didn't waver, but he kept... more
Minute in the Word
How powerful is the power that lives inside of us?
