Seven Weapons of Warfare
God has given you weapons of warfare with which to fight the battle and walk as an overcomer in this hour. You are more than a conqueror in Christ. Here is a list of weapons that if used offensively and defensively will give you victory in the battle. You can walk as an overcomer.
The Word of God
His Word is quick and powerful and it is a sharp weapon against the enemy. It will expose the thoughts and intents of your heart and go where no man can go. You will have your heart searched by the Word of God. He is the God of all comfort and will search your heart for your good and bring healing and life to all areas of your life. Jesus Christ is the Word that has changed your life and will change the life of others. Nations will be changed by the Word of God.
12For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
Prayer & Intercession
We know that we need to pray and yet the cares of this life often get into the way of our taking time with Him. We are told that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. It is one of your weapons of warfare and in praying your will be changed and come to know your God in a greater way. Prayer changes us as well as circumstances and it is what moves the hand of God. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. The Lord is looking for intercessors in this hour that will touch His hearts and bring about lasting change. Pray that God will make you that intercessor He is looking for and that He uses you mightily to bring about change.
And I sought for a man among them that should make up the hedge,
And stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Ezkeiel 22:30
15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:15-15
The Word of Your Testimony
Your testimony of what the Lord has done for you is a powerful weapon against the enemy. The enemy may come along and whisper in your ear but as you confesss what the Lord has done for you you will have the victory. Faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Remember what the Lord has done for you and share your faith and testimony with others. Fear not but step out in faith and realize that your testimony will touch hearts and bring others to Jesus. You will overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony.
11And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Revelation 12:11
Speaking in Tongues
The Lord filled you with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. It is the power of God in your life. With it you worship and praise the Lord. It has also been given to you to do battle and war for the things of God. Pray in the Spirit often. Paul said he thanked God that he spoke in tongues more than the others. He knew it was the power to walk with the Lord. You will have increased revelation as you pray in tongues for a good while. Ask Him for a fresh infilling daily and you will walk in the Spirit. Praying in the Spirit is a great weapon of warfare and you will do battle with it and win.
I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than you all: 1 Cor. 14:18
The Word of Prophesy
The apostle Paul told Timothy to wage war with the prophetic word that that he had received in the past. We need to take the prophetic words we have received and walk in obedience so that they are fulfilled. Pray over them and call them in God’s timing and season.
This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war A good warfare; 1 Timothy 1:18
Praise and Worship
Your praise and worship touches the heart of the Father. Take time every day to praise and worship the Lord. It will lift your Spirit, bring you into the presence of the Lord and you will see the hand of God move on your behalf. Your heart will be filled with joy unspeakable and full of glory as you enter into the praise and the high praises of God. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3
The Blood of Jesus
You were saved by the blood of the Lamb. Jesus Christ paid the price in full for your sin. Keep a repentant walk with the Lord and daily let His blood cleanse you from all sin. Keep short accounts with the Lord. Apply the blood of Jesus to yourself, your family and your belongings daily and use the blood of Jesus to do battle as the Lord shows you. There is power in the blood of Jesus over all power of the enemy.
7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7 (NKJV)
The Lord has called you as one of His end time warriors to usher in His Kingdom. Be encouraged today to stand for Him and use the Weapons He has given to you to fight the battle. You will overcome and walk with Him in white. God is going to use YOU.
