“It is warfare”
Pastor Belinda🌷- June 15, 2023
You, as a Christian, come from a family that knows how to fight. They don’t fight as men do they fight on a higher level. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 KJV 4 “(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”
That right there pretty much sums it up. We are not fighting on a carnal level. We have been given weapons not of this world. If we will war with wisdom using what God has equipped us with we will be victorious. Demons will not admit they are defeated, nor will they be defeated just because we feel good about ourselves. It is a spiritual war we are in. If you are not familiar with “spiritual warfare” you need to attach yourself to someone who functions in it and learn how. I remember hearing Francis Frangipane say that the biggest mistake the church has made is thinking spiritual warfare is “like” war, he said “it isn’t like war, it IS war.”
David came out against Goliath with nothing but his sling and five smooth stones, he knew God was on his side! When God is added to the equation the bride of Christ will be victorious.
Let’s put on our wedding garment and our army boots, cause this bride may battle, but with God Jehovah she wins!
Be it the election, your family, your health, your finances, God always wins! ALWAYS!
1 Samuel 17:42-50 42”He looked David over and saw that he was little more than a boy, glowing with health and handsome, and he despised him. 43He said to David, "Am I a dog, that you come at me with sticks?" And the Philistine cursed David by his gods. 44"Come here," he said, "and I'll give your flesh to the birds and the wild animals!" 45David said to the Philistine, "You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the LORD Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46This day the LORD will deliver you into my hands, and I'll strike you down and cut off your head. This very day I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds and the wild animals, and the whole world will know that there is a God in Israel. 47All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves; for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give all of you into our hands." 48As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. 49Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground. 50So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.”
Be encouraged, do not grow weary, God is still Lord of all!
