Free in Jesus

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)

Lord, I desire to crucify this sinful nature that lives in me.  I know that I am free because Your Son set me free.  I do not have to accept my sinful ways.  I can make them submit to You as Your holiness transforms my very being.

“For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.” (Philippians 1:21)

Lord, I pray that my life here on this earth will honor You.  I pray that each day I will become closer to You and ever look more like what I see in Your Word!  I pray that Your Word will be alive and active in me.

Waging War

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)

Dear Father God, I pray that You O Lord will draw my brothers Caleb, Bart, and Mike to You.  Please do not let them leave this earth without the assurance that they will spend eternity with You when they leave.  I pray that they will have their Damascus moment and come face to face with their need for Jesus.

The Warrior’s Prayer

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:10-12)

I am a warrior. God has equipped me to lead a warrior’s life. I do not have to cower in fear or be anxious of the future. God is my King, my Commanding Officer, and I can show up to the battle lines ready for war. I do that by walking in the full armor of God. This passage of Scripture equips me to walk confidently and in my God-given authority. There is no need for me to shrink back. No need to apologize. It’s time for war and I’m ready!

David Jeremiah offers an incredible prayer to equip us for the warrior’s journey. May you pray this and believe that you too are equipped to do battle against the enemy.

Heavenly Father, 

Your warrior prepares for battle.

  • Today I claim victory over Satan by putting on the whole armor of God!
  • I put on the Girdle of Truth! May I stand firm in the truth of Your Word so I will not be a victim of Satan’s lies.
  • I put on the Breastplate of Righteousness! May it guard my heart from evil so I will remain pure and holy, protected under the blood of Jesus Christ.
  • I put on the Shoes of Peace! May I stand firm in the Good News of the Gospel so your peace will shine through me and be a light to all I encounter.
  • I take the Shield of Faith! May I be ready for Satan’s fiery darts of doubt, denial, and deceit so I will not be vulnerable to spiritual defeat.
  • I put on the Helmet of Salvation. May I keep my mind focused on You so Satan will not have a stronghold on my thoughts.
  • I take the Sword of the Spirit! May the two-edged sword of Your Word be ready in my hands so I can expose the tempting words of Satan.
  • By faith your warrior has put on the whole armor of God!
  • I am prepared to live this day in spiritual victory!

Satan’s Playbook

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you… (James 4:7-8)

Let’s take a look at Satan’s playbook.  Let’s get a closer look at the tactics he uses in our lives.

Recently, there has been an email circulating with an image of Satan addressing a worldwide convention of demons.  There are basically 12 tactics that he gives to the demons.  He explains that the demons will have victory over Christians, if they can simply get Christians to do the following 12 things.

1.  Keep them busy with nonessentials.

2.  Tempt them to spend, spend, spend.  Encourage their debt!

3.  Get them to work long hours to maintain their empty lifestyles.

4.  Discourage them from spending family time, for when homes disintegrate there’s no refuge from work.

Storm the Gates of Hell

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.  The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:3-4)

The above verse makes it very clear that we are in a war.  I think we too often forget this.  As Christians, we forget that there is an Enemy out to destroy us.  We forget to prepare for battle daily.  Sometimes we even act as though the war is over.  No matter how much we ignore the war or pretend it doesn’t exist… it still never goes away.

I’m not talking about the war overseas or the wars that men fight.  I’m talking about the war for your soul.  The war for your thoughts.  The war for your God given abilities.  The war for your family.  The war for your marriage.  The war for your health.  Anyone who has decided to give their lives to Christ, stepped into a battle zone.

Thankfully, God has given us the weapons to fight with.  God’s weapons are bigger, better, and badder than the Enemy’s weapons.  It’s time to pack your arsenal with God’s Word and prepare to fight the battles that you face.  Let’s not give the Enemy any more territory in our lives.  Let’s claim what is rightfully ours in Jesus Christ and move forward with a battle plan.

This week, I will be diving into this subject.  I will be praying that God gives me the words to speak, to teach you how to fight in this battle and come out victorious.  May we stand together and become aware of the Enemy’s attacks.
