Offensive Weapon Focus
Welcome, all Royal Prayer Guards and all those who join us!
This is another opportunity to prove that we are responsible children of God through not just prayer, but using the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Our heavenly Father did not leave His children defenseless.
One thing He has provided is the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God”
Responsibility as believers in Christ!
Even though He has provided the sword of the Spirit, we as His children need to use it daily and be responsible.
Responsibility vs. Unreliability
"Knowing and doing what both God and others are expecting from me." *(IBLP)
“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.”
Walk in victory!
Our Father does not want His children walking around defeated but rather, walking in the victory of His Son, Jesus Christ!
I believe God is honored and joy manifested when His children walk in victory in every area of life.
Since it is possible to grieve the Holy Spirit, it is possible to bring joy to the Holy Spirit.
“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God…”
Parent’s desire! Father’s desire!
Parents do not desire their children to walk around defeated.
Parents desire their children to walk in truth, likewise for our heavenly Father.
3 John 1:4
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”
The truth is using the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, pushing down every obstacle, in Jesus name!
“Through You we will push down our enemies; Through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us.”
