PREPARING TO FIGHT



God is calling you to prepare for battle because Satan is intensifying his attacks against God’s people. To go out to battle without preparing your mind for the fight is like a soldier going out to the battlefield without his weapons, untrained, unprepared to fight, and without a battle strategy.

Before an army engages the enemy in battle, there must be a time of preparation. Weapons are checked to see if they are ready and in good condition. The Commander-In- Chief and the officers plan their battle strategies. The soldiers go through all sorts of practice maneuvers simulating the strategies they will use during battle. The army is placed on high alert. They are prepared physically and mentally to confront the enemy.


Like a soldier in the natural world, you must be trained and prepared to fight and win the war for your mind. You should not be surprised when the enemy attacks. He is your enemy, and that is what enemies do! You must not feel sorry for yourself, whine, complain, or wonder why you are being attacked. You have been warned about Satan’s strategies through the Word of God. He will attack, but you can be prepared.


Paul told the Corinthians: “Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong” (1 Corinthians 16:13, NAS).


He told the Ephesians: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might” (Ephesians 6:10).


When you go out to battle, you do not face the enemy in your own strength, but in the power of Almighty God. You are going out to fight and win the war against Satan equipped with the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead. This power is resident within you (Ephesians 1:19-20). This means that there is no room for defeat!


Strengthen your mind for battle and prepare to fight, knowing that God is sending you forth fully equipped for spiritual warfare. You are going out armed and with a strong, victorious mind. Paul said:

Therefore put on God’s complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day (of danger), and having done all (the crisis demands), to stand (firmly in your place). (Ephesians 6:13, AMP)


A new strength is coming into your heart and mind, into your innermost being. Receive this promise by faith and be strengthened in your mind. You are set free from the mental torment that has hindered you from reaching your divine destiny.


PRAYER:

My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
