Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means shall hurt you. (Luke 10:19)
Now, I know that at some time in your lives, you have watched a movie and in the movie, a character equipped with a weapon was afraid to use it. I mean, they would have a gun or sword in hand and too afraid to use it. In addition, while watching…you were probably talking to the TV saying us it stupid!hurry!…or something like that.
Well, did you know that as a born again believer, you hold greater power than even a person holding a gun in his or her hands pointing at the adversary? Brothers and sisters, Luke 10:20 tell us that the spirits are subject to us (true believers that is) and that we should rejoice because our names are written in heaven.
We who are with Jesus really have the upper hand in all spiritual warfare against the enemy. Revelation 17:14 says: These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
If you truly want to see the face of God, it is necessary to take up your spiritual weapons and fight back. The word of God is our weapon of warfare. However, until we learn and speak it aloud, we will never see the manifestation of victory over our enemy. Truly, our war is not against another brother or sister.
We should not ever place a face with the altercation or issues we face. We are not fighting against flesh and blood…we are in spiritual warfare. Unless you get spiritually fit…you are doomed to lose. No matter how strong you may think you are in your mind and physical body…remember. If you are spiritually weak…You are being set up for the kill. Get in on this gift of salvation; give yourself away so God can use you. Remember we are salt and light to the world.
