Memorize: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. 2 Corinthians: 10:3-4
Devotional Reading: 2 Corinthians 10:1-7
Everyone that comes into this world must fight spiritual battles whether we like it or not, life is a battlefield. Majority of the battles of life are not physical, they are spiritual battles, only spiritual weapons can combat and overcome them, this goes to buttress the memorize for todays devotion, “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal”. We are fighting real battles and our arch enemy is Satan, we cannot see him or his cohorts with physical eyes nor can we hold these enemies physically. So the weapons that we need to combat and overcome them are not weapons that we can see or hold, they are spiritual weapons, these weapons are mighty through God to the pulling down of the strongholds of our enemies.
Some of these weapons are:
1; Prayer. Prayer is a force that the enemy cannot withstand it is invisible and unstoppable, it cannot be destroyed. That is why it is highly dangerous for any believer to toy with prayer. Prayer is a weapon that the enemy bow to when it is put into effective use, especially when coupled with fasting and speaking in tongues, it confuses the enemy, they cannot understand what you are saying. I’ll like you to know that if the enemy succeed in stopping you from praying, then they have succeeded in depriving you of your victory. The power of a believer is in his\her ability to pray. I pray for you today, that God will give you stronger ability to pray so that you will not be a prey to the devil in Jesus name.
Another weapon is Faith. Two of the greatest strategic weapons of our enemy are fear and unbelief. The devil uses these two weapons very often. But thanks be to Jesus who has given us weapon that can neutralize these weapons of the enemy. Hebrews. 11:6 says but without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he that cometh to God must believe that He is and He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Faith is our weapon of Warfare when the devil throws doubt at you, your response to him will be to act in Faith and do that which the devil says you cannot do. Most of the spiritual battles that God has helped me fight and overcome in life, family; business and ministry have been fought and won through Faith. You must overcome fear in order to have Faith.
There is a level you will get to in life that the devil will just stay clear of your zone because they have tried you many times and found you to be unmovable by your faith and prayer. I want to encourage someone today, get back and win that battle that the enemy threw at you, don’t give up, you are not a coward, you have a mighty God as your Father and He has given you potent weapons of warfare to fight the enemy, so use them, go and win that battle and keep winning in Jesus name.
Prayer point: O mighty warrior, please give me the power to win all spiritual warfare mounted against me and my family in Jesus name.
Key Dose: Faith is the secret to victory, especially when coupled with prayer & fasting.
