One day as I was in the midst of a particularly grueling spiritual battle, the Lord made clear His battle plan for me to have victory in that particular battle. He showed me long ago in the Old Testament that He had different battle plans for different battles in times of physical war, and I believe the same is true in spiritual warfare. We need to look to the Lord, to the Bible, pray to Him, seek Him, listen, hear, measure what we hear against the Bible to ensure what we are hearing is from Him as He always and only speaks in line with the Bible, and obey Him to secure victory. Then we need to remember to give Him the glory for victory and not take it ourselves.
Please read the battle plan He gave me and see if He might speak to you through it concerning your own life’s battles.
The Lord revealed in His battle plan for me that He wanted me to use my mouth to achieve victory in these five ways:
…PRAISE AND WORSHIP HIM
…SING TO HIM
…PRAY TO HIM
…SPEAK SCRIPURES AS JESUS DID WHEN HE FACED THE DEVIL IN THE WILDERNESS
…TAKE AUTHORITY OVER THE DEVIL WITH MY MOUTH
I encourage you as you read the Bible both Old Testament and New Testament to pay attention to how the Holy Spirit leads God’s people in all things – battles and victories included! I also encourage you as you read the Bible to look out for verses concerning the battle plan He gave me. In other words, praise, worship, singing, prayer, scriptures to speak and most importantly to live by, and taking authority over the devil in the power of Christ.
And please, friend, keep your heart wide open as you read the Bible which I urge you to do daily to see how the Holy Spirit of God leads you in your everyday life – battles included!
Watch in this verse how Jesus when facing the devil in the wilderness took authority over the devil and used a Bible verse in doing so!
“And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Luke 4:8
Friend, remember no matter the battle plan the Lord places on your heart as you go through life’s battles, the victory is in and through the Lord! The ultimate glory is to be HIS! Amen!
