Today’s exhortation – the weapons of our warfare
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,” (II Corinthians 10:4). We learnt about some our weapons last week. The name of Jesus; The cross; The Holy Spirit and The blood of Jesus. There are others, the word of God, our testimonies, praise and prayer, but knowing them and knowing we have them alone are not enough! We must use them! We can’t remain silent and expect them to work. We must apply the Blood, we must call out the Name, we must sing out praises and we must call out the word of God against these strongholds. What are strongholds? Places, situations and great problems that appear impossible to defeat or for God to move in.
In every warfare, the opposing army seeks to exploit the weakness of the other army, but in our warfare against the devil and his army, we are told to tear down their strongholds! We are to attack them where they’re strongest and when we claim a territory for God, it’s for keeps! The Lord said to Joshua, “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses.” (Joshua 1:3). We mustn’t allow the devil any room into our minds, bodies, homes, schools etc ! Finally brethren, let’s remember that in all these things, we are more than conquerors in Jesus Name! Amen.
