FRIDAY 12TH FEB.,2016
TOPIC: STOP FIGHTING IN YOUR OWN STRENGTH
TEXT: 2 Corinthians 10:3 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.”
The Book of second Corinthians shows us the dynamics of how we should fight our battles of life. Honestly, we don’t need the guns.We can soar higher and faster with Him. ‘For though we live in the world we do not wage war as the world does.’ The weapons He gives ‘have divine power to demolish strongholds’; we don’t need the ‘weapons of the world’ (2 Corinthians 10:3-4 NIV).
The mind set is ; ‘No thanks’; we have to shoot back and defend ourselves with arsenals of angry words, demanding attitudes, manipulative manoeuvres, excessive excuses, and bombs of blame. It takes courage to stop using weapons of the flesh, ‘take up the shield of faith’, and arm ourselves with the weapons of God (Ephesians 6:16 NIV). It’s the kind of faith David showed when he told Goliath, ‘You come against me with sword and spear…but I come against you in the name of the Lord’ (1 Samuel 17:45 NIV).
Stop fighting in your own strength and let God’s spiritual arsenal defend you; ‘He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him’ (Proverbs 30:5 NIV).
