SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINE: WARFARE

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

1 Tim 1:18 says This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare”,

(NKJV)

When you give your life to Christ, you get conscripted into the army of the Lord, because you are at war. It is important we understand this so that we can gird up ourselves to battle. If you don’t discipline yourself in spiritual warfare, you can’t come into your inheritance in Christ. The warfare is a ‘good’ warfare because we are fighting from the victory side. Although Christ has done the work already on the cross, we still need to take our stand based on the finished work and wage war against the kingdom of darkness. Eph 6:10-13 ”Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”(NKJV). We need to know that we are not the ones fighting; we enter into battle on our knees while the angels do the fighting. Understand that if we don’t engage in fervent prevailing warfare prayers, the angels can’t engage in the battle in the realms of the spirit. Warfare is a discipline because we must create out time to build an ever growing prayer alter in order to attract divine attention and intervention. We must engage in deliberate and strategic warfare prayers.

Go into today knowing that you are victorious through Christ who has given you the attack weapon of the word and prayers. Let all your confessions concerning life be (based on) the word of God.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father, I thank you for your victory that I now walk in. I pray you help me walk always in the light of your word. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
