Our faith is tested in many ways. One way that God shows us that He is in control is to put us in situations we can’t control. To learn to trust in the middle of absolute chaos is to develop a character that matches the level of anointing that He desires to bring us into. We must be released from a soul that reacts to what’s taking place around us so that we may be led by the spirit within us.

The Armor of God is meant to cover the natural man so that we may prevail in Spiritual Warfare. Most Christians never wanted to have to fight the devil. They just wanted to remain a normal Christian, go to church, invite people to church, go to work, mind their own business, move within their small circle and not get involved in anyone else’s business.

There comes a day in each of our lives that we encounter evil and must learn about spiritual warfare out of necessity. Suddenly you may find yourself in the middle of confrontation or controversy that moves you out of your comfort zone and onto the battle field. Your family’s well being at that moment will depend on you having a peace in your soul that is beyond understanding so that the burden you feel translates into spiritual action and not soul reaction.

The power of the Blood, the might of the Spirit and the Word of our testimony are the weapons we must use in this hour to defend our families and our faith. This is war. It’s a campaign of “shock and awe”. The shock is on the enemies face as he sees those whom he thought he had defeated rising up in faith to destroy his works. The awe is the reaction of fear as the world sees its systems shaking and crumbling as the hand of God moves in the earth.

“Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle” (Psalm 144:1)
