The fortune cookie paper read: “Keep fighting the enemy as long as you live”
Much is being said these days about the right to bear arms. For generational hunting families most of them are bound to have something to bag that deer or another type of wildlife. While I’ve never needed a gun for protection thus far, I am glad to know that I am protected if needs be. If you’re going to own a gun it’s important to know how to use one.
Oh beloved, the enemy hopes you think you are an unarmed victim of his violence. He does not want you to know the arsenal of help you have in Christ. But God Himself wants to teach you protection, defense and attack. He wants you to know the Word of God so well that whatever the devil pulls out for harm you are ready to respond with faith. When the enemy speaks he is trying the lock at the door of your heart. This is the best time to pull out your weapons of warfare, for they are mighty. Don’t even let the enemy get in the door – respond with rapid fire of the Word of God and the council of the Most High. If the enemy gets in he will try to take you captive. Take up the shield of faith and watch his flaming darts fall to the ground around you. Even if you are in a dire situation right now, beloved, you still are an armed citizen of heaven. Wake up and begin to use the weapons of warfare that are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds you are in. The enemy cannot defeat the child of God who knows their position. You might as well shout to the housetops “I am armed and dangerous to the kingdom of darkness!” Rejoice that even if you don’t see immediate responses to your fierce stand in Christ, the enemy has to flee. Quickly bolt the door of your heart and praise God for His protection, armor and faith!
God loves His children and He’s for them – and that includes you! It’s time God’s people realize what weaponry of the Spirit is and how to use it for the Kingdom and Glory of God! Praise the Lord you don’t have to succumb to the enemy for you are armed and ready for the spiritual battles that come your way. Keep fighting and know you are winning, victorious and overcoming as you life in the Light of God’s provision and power!

2 Corinthians 6:7 We faithfully preach the truth. God’s power is working in us. We use the weapons of righteousness in the right hand for attack and the left hand for defense.
2 Samuel 22:36 You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your help makes me great.
Ephesians 6:11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.
