It is time to bring our A-game…there is a war happening around us and the enemy is stepping it up…our response should be the same. Over the last week or so I have felt the oppression and I know that many of my fellow sisters are feeling it too.
The enemy is working harder than ever because he knows his days are numbered.
Spiritual warfare is happening everywhere…we can see it on the news…the enemy is looking to devour us at every turn. (1 Peter 5:8) He will take every chance he can to destroy our homes, families, and the world around us.
You and I have to respond to his schemes…if we sit back and let it happen he will destroy us. Sister, you and I are in a war and it is time to get focused and prepared. It is time for us to get calluses on our knees from praying the house down…it is time for us to set the record straight and show the enemy who we serve whole heartedly without wavering…it is time to SHUT THE ENEMY DOWN. The enemy is only as powerful as we allow him to be.
He may not come after us in big ways but even in the small ways he can divide us, discourage us and break us.
Scripture tells us what our response should be as we prepare for battle. He has equipped us with armor in Ephesians 6 and in verse 11 we see why we need the armor in the first place…so we can stand firm against the schemes of the enemy.
Sister, it’s time to suit up. Pull out the armor and put it on your body. Cover your mind, your heart…and pick up your weapon and shield. The enemy won’t back down…so neither should we.
One of the pieces we forget that activates all of that armor is prayer! We sit back in our oppression and we don’t pray…we don’t seek God and we don’t get our prayer warriors on our side…NEVER be afraid to ask for prayer! WE must hit our knees and bring our need before God…we must bring our weakness and seek His wisdom and peace.
You and I are equipped with a spirit that can hit the enemy where it hurts…and when we speak the name of Jesus over our lives and our families the enemy cannot gain victory!
We have to remember friend that the enemy knows that he loses in the end…(Revelation 20:10) Read it and believe it; his days are numbered…
If we learn to recognize when he is trying to push us around we will be prepared and ready to push back with God on our side, armor on our bodies…and The Word in our hands!
