And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Matthew 16:18
The body of Christ is to be advancing the Kingdom of God. Instead, there has never been so many downcast, depressed, angry and bitter children of God! It can only be concluded that there are some things missing in the spiritual armor – we have not completely sold out to God. Instead, we are just as caught up in the things of the world as the world. We think like the world and we react like the world. What happened to the joy of the Lord being our strength? What happened to knowing that He that is within us is greater than he that is in the world? Here’s the problem: We know that we serve a God who is in full control, who can do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or even think:
You already said in Your word that 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. Lord, bring deliverance wherever it is needed in accordance to Your Divine will.
Help us to fight in the spirit and to recognize that our fight is not against flesh and blood, but through our prayers, Your word, the blood of Jesus, the power of Jesus name, the indwelling of Your Holy Spirit, we are armed to stand against every single attack of the enemy. And with You on our side Lord, we know we are victorious!
And now Lord as we come before You, I pray Lord that Your Holy Spirit lead and guide us in the direction, that we should take, that our assigned angels be with us and that we represent You well as representatives and ambassadors of Your Kingdom.
In Jesus name I thank you and I pray, amen.
Psalms 27 is a humbling praise, acknowledgement and submission to God:
And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing , yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD. Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, Neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up. Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
