This week in our Global Prayer Storm we are going to rise up and use our effective weapons of Spiritual Warfare to confront the enemy in our lives, families and spheres of influence!  So here you go! I am arming you for battle this week!

Your most effective weapons

  1. You Must Know and Speak the Word

    Rev. 12:11 – They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. (Heb 4:12; 1 Jn. 5:4-5)2 Tim. 2:15 – Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. NIV

    2 Tim. 3:16-17 – All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. NIV
  2. Your Conversations Should Reflect the Mentality of a ConquerorProv. 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
  3. You must Take Authority Over Satan in the Name of Jesus Prov. 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous runs into it and is safe.

    Philippians 2:9,10 Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every Knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth.

  4. You Must By Faith Clothe Yourself With the God’s Spiritual Armor 

    Eph. 6:13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

  5. You Must Tap Into The Power of Prayer and FastingJames 5:16 – Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

    Isa. 58:6 – Is this not the fast which I choose, To loosen the bonds of wickedness, To undo the bands of the yoke, And to let the oppressed go free, And break every yoke?

  6. You Must Draw Forth the Wisdom of God From Spiritual VeteransHonor the vets of spiritual battle and learn from their successes and failures. Prov. 1:5 – A wise man will hear and increase in learning, And a man of understanding will acquire wise counsel.
  7. You Must Learn When to Rest and Not Directly Engage the EnemyThe devils job is to wear down the saints (Dan. 7:25) The spirit of the antichrist comes to do the same (1 Jn. 4:3) therefore, we must learn wisdom with our warring and learn to rest in the Lord and physically as well.

Forces That Shorten Your Seasons of Struggle

  1. Your TestimonyAgreeing with the Word of God that Jesus has already won the battle is a power tool the devil hates.
    Rom. 10:8 – But what does it say? “The Word is near you, I your mouth and in your heart”- that is, the word of faith which we are preaching. (Prov. 18:21; Rev. 12:11)
  2. Your PraiseThis creates a climate satan can not tolerate.
    I Sam. 16:23 So it came about whenever the evil spirit from God came to Saul, David would take the harp and play it with his hand and Saul would be refreshed and be well, and the evil spirit would depart from him.
  3. Your AgreeingGet others involved!  Call forth the power of agreeing prayer.
    Matt. 18:18-19 – Truly I say to you, whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.
  4. Your Seed-SowingThis creates a partnership with God that involved Him to battle your adversary.  Have a need?  Sow a Seed!
    Mal. 3:10-11 – Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it may not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes, says the Lord of hosts. (II Cor. 9:6-12)
