So now the stage is set for us: all these faith-heroes cheer us on, as it were, like a great multitude of spectators in the amphitheater. This is our moment. As with an athlete who is determined to win, it would be silly to carry any baggage of the old law-system that would weigh one down. Make sure you do not get your feet clogged up with sin-consciousness. Become absolutely streamlined in faith. Run the race of your spiritual life with total persuasion. (Mirror Bible)
Are you asking the Father to teach your hands to war?
Do you ever stop to think about your life and make sense of all you have experienced? Did you come to the realization that you are in a war? That may be a difficult concept to grasp. But, though it may be difficult, it is still true. The enemy’s job is to steal what God has for you; kill your faith and destroy all God has done in and with your life. You are a witness and what God has done is your testimony. So, you have to engage.
Ephesians 6:12-18 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; (KJV)
Your job is to understand where the battle is and fight with the weapons God has provided. Live a life that sets someone else free.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, in the name of Jesus, I come before You thanking You for making me aware of my responsibilities. I ask You to reorder my life, my thoughts and my actions so I can engage in the war for my soul and the souls of others. My desire is for You to get the glory out of my life and a dying world might be saved…
