Weapons For Our Warfare

Manna For Today: Monday, December 2, 2019

Weapons are critical to success in warfare. It will not suffice to just have a weapon, but the right weapon, for the context you are warring in, can assure your success.

On one occasion Jesus tells Satan “it is written” while on another Jesus says “this kind only can be moved through fasting and prayer.”

The devil uses weapons in an attempt to defeat believers. His arsenal includes sin, sickness, poverty, divorce, doubt, accidents, fear, worry, apathy, offense, depression to name a few.

Our weapons include the following:

1. The Name of Jesus

Mark 16:17-18And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

Philippians 2:9-11Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

2. The Word of God

Ephesians 6:17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Matthew 4:1Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

3. Our prayer

Ephesians 6:18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints…

Matthew 18:18-19Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.

4. Our confession

Mark 11:23For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

II Corinthians 4:13And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak.

5. Our worship

Luke 4:18“The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed.”

Matthew 18:20For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.

Psalm 22:3But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel.

We must not become:

a. Complacent

I Peter 5:8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

b. Religious

II Timothy 3:5…having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

c. Deceived

John 8:31-32Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
