The instructions of the Lord are perfect reviving the soul.
~ Psalm 19:7(NLB)

 

Spiritual Warfare

 

My beloved, may the Lord of strength be your shield and fortress this day, for this is the day that the Lord has made.

May the Lord bless you and keep you.

 

In this series on warfare, we are continually praying on behalf of the Saints, for when we become saved we are not sinners any longer. For our sin debt has been paid. Changes come over a person’s body, just as a butterfly has gone through metamorphosis to become a beautiful creature. That is what happens to Christians; they leave the former state of being and then become translated into the kingdom. They may still sin, but we know that He who is washed in the blood no longer sins. When we do sin and fall short of the glory we lose that intimate touch; that relationship that we have with the Father must be pure. There is power in purity. Believe this, my beloved. Holiness is what brings change in your life. You may look like a worm, but I promise, if you continue to push through life’s obstacles, you’ll shine like the sun and bring glory to the Father.

 

 
 

We often are fearful of the outcome. Fear is a result of relying on our own strength and ability. I state to you that you have to exhaust your resources of self-preservation. Just trust in Him. “The battle is the Lord’s” (I Samuel 17:47 NKJV). Just as Jonah was in the belly of the whale, just as Daniel was in the lion’s den, and just as Jesus was on His Cross, the message is the same: come to the end of yourself. Come to a place where you no longer help Him help you. When God is on the throne of your life, that is when you will have peace.

We cannot walk in what we see or hear. 2 Cor. 5:7 says that “We walk by faith and not by sight.” The opposite of fear is hope. But hope in an expected result is natural hope. There are two kinds of hope. Self-hope which is when one determines the outcome of this should be such and such. Natural hope will disappoint. But God’s hope is that His will be done in your life. Period. You must process your death. Be willing to die for your Father the way Abraham was willing to kill Isaac. Sacrifice your desires, your will, and your ways (Rom. 12:1-2). His ways are higher. It is paramount that faith believes in the impossible. So, if you want to be in spiritual warfare- Love, Hope, and Faith is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. That is living in the spiritual realm. We are just a vapor, and the night is almost spent. God is calling you back into union with Christ (Isaiah 41:10 NKJV). The enemy is trying to corrupt the believer to cause the believer to focus on his outward mistakes, but internally the seed is incorruptible.
