This is a season of intense spiritual warfare and as warriors there must be no room for passivity or lukewarmness in our lives.
As kings and priests (Revelation 1:6) we have been authorised to use weapons in our warfare that are not carnal but mighty though God to the pulling down of strong holds (2Corinthians 10:4). Our thoughts, our emotions, our actions must be realigned and re-centred on the Lord. He is the Captain of the army-Lord of Sabaoth who has given us the ‘Rules of Warfare’ handbook in the Bible. If you feel weak or passive to fight, just pick up His Word and bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. His Word has the divine power to demolish strongholds and infuse us with greater spiritual resilience and grit.
Had David been in the battlefield when he was required to (2Samuel 11:1), his emotions wouldn’t have ruled him to say yes to temptations that had devastating consequences. His positioning and timing were totally off. Warriors, if you desire to be in the centre of God’s will, you will have to fight some battles in this season.
Nonetheless, remember God’s eternal plans are always secure from the threatenings of man and the enemy. If you will partner with Him and fight the battle, you will fight from an advantage point, a supernatural view because of your position of being seated with Christ in heavenly places. (Ephesians 2:6)
Battle O warriors for you are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that you should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)
Arise, stand, walk, run & fight the good fight of faith! After all it’s all worth it for the King and His Kingdom.
