Part of the This is How I Fight My Battles series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Introduction - Word of God is vital in our lives. Understanding “This is how I fight my battles”. Praise and thanksgiving is how we fight our battles. Our theme for this month. Talking about warfare. One way is by being thankful and praising God. Stop looking at the wrong thing - the circumstance. Lift up your eyes and look to the presence of God. When you look up in praise and thanksgiving, that’s where your strength and life comes from.
Lift your head over unforgiveness. It frees you and the other person. It releases the authority back in your life as a child of God.
In this hard place, open your life to God, release thankfulness and forgiveness. Guarantee that freedom will come! God wants to break bondage by his presence and his Spirit.
Eph 6:10-12 Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Finally C3L, be strong in the Lord and in His might. Put on the whole armour of God. Understand that there is a place where you can step into the strength of God. God wants to give life, and more abundantly. Be strong in the Lord. Build strength. Able to lift heavy things, comes through resistance. The more I exercise, the stronger I get. Build spiritual muscle - prayer, intercession. If you’re only lifting a 2kg dumbell in prayer, you’re not going to get strong in prayer!
God has given us every weapon that we need to break strongholds! Build strength in that relationship with God, then strength will be infused in you! Then you’ll have strength to stand.
Eph 6:10. TPT - “be supernaturally infused with strength”. The best place to start our warfare is not on the battlefield, but beforehand, understanding our relationship with Jesus. Because of our union with Christ. Why is there so much opposition to this? Not your strength, not your might, but by the spirit of God that you will be infused with supernatural strength.
God is the King, everything we do comes out of that place with relationship with God. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power. (TPT)
Be strong! Strength comes from my union with Him, not how many words I give! I have a relationship with the God of the universe! Jesus made a way for us to have relationship! I can have this every single day - so what’s stopping us? Because of unanswered prayer? Hurts? Rejection? Fear? It’s hard to get past the blockages. This is the first blockage we need to work through.
Perfect love casts out fear. Story of the checkout. Pray “Thank you that perfect love casts out fear.” Change the atmosphere of fear. Weapons of warfare are not carnal, but they are strong. What is stealing, robbing your life?
When Jesus said “It is finished”! It was complete! No more work to be done!
