The theme of authority/warfare with our words is still continuing.
My friend Callie mentioned that instead of coming up with new year’s resolutions, their church had them pray about ONE WORD that the Lord wanted them to focus on for the year. It was awesome to hear her testimony of just the “one word” each one in her family received as they prayed. The Lord is speaking to me about so many things I need to work on that I don’t think I could come up with just one word (though I’m going to ask Him if there is one He wants me to focus on above all else), but I already know that ONE of the words He’s still emphasizing to us over and over is “WARRIOR”~ stressing the need to make His promises heart revelation again so that when we rise up as warriors to speak, the mountains MOVE! He is talking about this as a whole for every area, but is particularly highlighting our need to do this in regard to healing ~ getting the breakthrough/victory we need so that we’re truly walking in His divine health.
Here are some of these words from the past few days:
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Ephesians 6:10
Every Day Of Your Life You’re Involved In An Emotional, Physical, And Spiritual Fight. You’re Either Going To Win Or Lose; You’ll Either Be The Victor Or The Victim!
Millions of people live in perpetual defeat and humiliation because they do not understand spiritual warfare. Why is it that some people constantly struggle and never reach their goal? Why is it that some people are perpetually frustrated with sickness and financial reversal and emotional crises? Why is it that some people seem to have continued success without any effort at all, while others seem crushed by endless litanies of unexplained tragedies?
We were brought up with the idea to believe that fighting was the exception, not the rule. But that is not true. Everyday, you are going to be involved in some sort of fight. You’re either going to wear a crown, or you’re going to live in chains. You’re going to live in shame and despair or you’re going to have the shout of victory in your mouth and the choice is yours. You must know who your enemy is, and how to fight and win.
The army of God is led by Jesus Christ the author and the finisher of your faith. He is the captain of our salvation. You are to be what He is – not a victim defeated by every adversary, but a victorious conqueror. January 7, 2014 (Copyright © John Hagee Ministries)
Also these statuses below I saw the other day when I got on the Facebook newsfeed for the first time in about 2 wks:
“Don’t pray and ask God to fight Satan for you. He has given you authority. Take your responsibility and speak directly to Satan yourself and stand your ground firmly. He will flee!” ~ Kenneth Copeland
“Where does discouragement come from? From fear and unbelief. It comes when you listen to the devil’s lies about what God is not going to do for you. When we speak the Word of God, we shut the devil out and he doesn’t have any place to work.” ~ Gloria Copeland
And this devo below from Ed Traut:
“Luke 10:19 “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” NKJV
~ He gave us power! Let’s believe it, exercise it and not shirk back or hide from it.
~ We can trample on all the adversities and attacks of the enemy because He has given us authority over our enemies.
~ We are promised that nothing will hurt us.
May we all rise up as His warrior bride this year to crush the enemy under our feet and walk in the fullness of His victory in every area of our lives!
