Aren’t you supposed to be part of a new season?
Are you still sitting on the fence of what The LORD has been saying to you?
You have been asking for Grace to help you in your time of need, because you have been — or were — approaching His Throne of Grace.
Does a baseball pitcher pitch the ball just to get it back, because he threw it?
Is that all there is to this game?
What is the purpose of a “strike”?
The goal is to get three of them to eliminate the threat of the opposition scoring against you. Remember that!
It requires more than one effort to be effective. Sometimes you can miss the strike zone, but you can still get the batter out, if you keep pitching your best.
Spiritual Warfare works the same way.
The Word of The LORD says to you: “Resist the devil and he will flee from you. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective”. (James 4:7, James 5:16)
You have the Authority to throw strikes against your adversary with every Word the proceeds from the Mouth of God.
The adversary is trying to throw strikes at you at the same time you are. But the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God to the pulling down of strongholds; utterly casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God — bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
Start pitching your best pitch against your adversary, the devil.
The Word of The LORD is in your mouth, even upon your lips.
It is the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Rhema Word of God. It is life-giving Spirit.
For the people who do know their God shall be strong and take action.
Give yourself over to the calling The LORD has given you. Stand fast therefor in the liberty in which Christ has made to free, and do not be entangled again in the yoke of slavery.
Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. You are not on the defensive side of the battle; you are on the offensive.
For The LORD has been saying to you “I give to you the keys of the Kingdom; and the gates of hell will not prevail against you.” (Matthew 16:19, Matthew 16:18)
It is time for you to get up and fight!
Fight for your life in Christ.
Fight for your family.
Fight for your homes and fight for your sacred honor in the Kingdom.
“For no weapon formed against will prosper. It will not prevail against you. The words spoken against you; you shall condemn. This is your heritage in The LORD and your vindication comes from Me”, says The LORD.
