Spiritual Warfare

Hi Beauties,

I pray that you are all doing well. Today I wanted to encourage you to always let turning to God to be your answer in all things. I know some may be at a stage where they are struggling with this; even those who believe that they have mastered it may struggle with it at times depending on the circumstance. So I hope that this post does what the Holy Spirit wants it to do as it is only Him that can water the seed that I am about to plant!

First of all, everything is spiritual. So if you are experiencing something bad with someone, try attacking it with fasting and prayer and not fighting the person:

Ephesians 6:11-17 "Put on the full armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

·      Belt of truth – We have to remember that God is for us and not against us, we deserve to live the life that God has for us because of what Jesus did for us on the cross and that God works things out for our good (Romans 8:28). Remember that He has already done it, so all you need to do now is believe. I challenge you to meditate on scripture related to such truth this week. Practice memorising scripture, you will be surprised on how your perspective will change! Which will positively affect your life. When you can rest in his truth you start to live it and own it. Now it is time to rock it as an accessory!
·      Breastplate of righteousness – Seeking God first and what he has called us to do is so important in this journey. You will never have to be ashamed when you are walking in the will of God, because you know that though matter what, He is the only truth way and life (Proverbs 21:21).
·      Gospel of peace – Sitting still before the Lord and meditating on His Holy word is something that brings me a sense of peace. Nothing can bring me the same in this world (not even food!), but the assurance that comes in Christ. I challenge you to get familiar with His word! Prayer is about speaking and hearing from God. He is not deaf or blind to your situation. So instead of praying the same prayer and babbling thinking that it will shift things (Matthew 6:7-8), how about just telling God that you lay the situation at his feet, trust Him and pray for the wisdom for this particular situation. We need to change the way that we pray!
·      Shield of faith – Some of you may know that I am obsessed with the topic of faith (lol). You need only faith as small as a mustard seed and God can work with that (Matthew 17:20). How amazing is that! I am thrilled that God can work with what we have, as long as we have something to build on! I know that faith comes with experience and not simply knowledge. So give God your mustard seed and you will be surprised at what He will do with it!
·      Helmet of salvation – Do not forget the time that you gave your life or rededicated it back to Christ. Remember how good it felt, when that weight was lifted off your shoulders? Do not let life’s problems get you down. But remain joyful (which is a fruit of the spirit! – Galatians 5:22-23) and speak life (Matthew 15:11). You are saved!!! Let that alone excite you! Spread the good news to others!
·      Sword of the spirit – We have the word of God! Life’s manual to any problem that you can think of. If you think that God is being silent and not speaking to you in your current situation, just know that you can open your Bible and hear from Him!

With that being said, I encourage you to fight back in prayer, meditate on scripture and fast as God leads. Hear from God and be obedient to what He is calling you to do. We live in a fallen world and the enemy wishes to attack us always. But we must stand firm in the truth that is Jesus Christ. The mighty hand of God is the only thing that can shift and move situations, for His glory. So just let go and let Him.

I have a video about fasting below.

God is faithful, don't forget it!
