A Warrior’s Way
The God that we serve is a warrior. The Lord is His Name.
He fights and as a father, He fights for us.
He doesn’t sit back and get assistants or privates to do the job but He does the fighting Himself.
If we accepted Jesus as our Lord, we have to know that we’re under His Authority and He is in charge. If we’re under His command we are in His army.
Therefore we are warriors too because it is His nature and we’re created in His image. It’s in my DNA.
It is in you whether you like it or not. It’s not cultural, not inherited and it’s a GOD thing!
Jesus is and will be the greatest warrior; a commander, the General (Sar Tzeva Hashem).
Jesus was not a Divine Doormat who just does what people want but He was the kind who rebelled against religion and was a freedom fighter who turned tables and challenged popular culture. He’s a champion with a cloak dipped in blood and riding a White Horse.
Whether you like it or not, whether you know it or not, when you accepted Him as Captain of your life, you signed the dotted line and enlisted in the army.
So wake up and smell the coffee; you’re in a war and you don’t even know it! There’s a fight for your life and a struggle for your soul.
Paul the Apostle reminds us to hold onto our salvation. As though someone is trying to distract you, and pluck the prize from your hands or pull the carpet from under your feet; tries to destroy your well-being so that you end up being a worrier and not a Warrior!
How do we walk out of here to go out and face situations? Do we go as warriors or “worriers”?
The true colours of a believer or Christian are seen when we’re in the toughest of times.
There’s a way of a warrior! Some have just been recruited, others are famished, and need replenishment. Whichever stage you’re at, remember the Lord goes ahead of us. As long as you are under God’s command and choose to remain there He’ll fight for you.
As Timothy was a timid child(just like many of us), Paul encouraged him to be a fighter!
1 Tim 6:12 1. Fight the good fight of faith.
What to do like a good warrior?
- We need to be sanctified warriors by living a holy life.
- To be content with what we have: a warrior must be content and fight what he must fight but not running around.
1 Tim 6:12
Is it our end goal to be rich and wealthy just for people’s approval? Let love for money not enslave us.
- Avoiding friendly fire.
Don’t shoot yourself in the foot nor should you shoot others in the church/body of Christ!
Where is our priority?
- Guarding/contending for the faith.
We are supposed to stand for the doctrine of the truth written in the scriptures and not just going after fancy doctrines.
So the salvation as a helmet that guards the head/mind, let’s guard our salvation dearly!
The enemy knew us at the time when we were born but God knew us before we were formed in our mother’s womb.
Let’s not be timid but run with God.
Some of us may lose some battles but let’s not be broken-hearted and sometimes God works things that way. God says you may lose battles but at the end, He wins the War for you.
Sometimes God uses our failure in a battle to trick the devil.
Jesus is the answer, not our jobs, status or money.
So when you get to prayer, know who you are and take up your position as a warrior. Amen!
Even Famines carry Gods’ purposes
Today as we face famine in this world, we are reminded of many famines mentioned in the Word of God. Few escaped to near by places while few remained in the land and faced the famine. Naomi was one among them who tried to escape the famine by lodging in Moab. On the other […]

“Lift up a banner on the high mountain, Raise your voice to them; Wave your hand, that they may enter the gates of the nobles. I have commanded My sanctified ones; I have also called My mighty ones for My anger— Those who rejoice in My exaltation.” Isaiah 13:2,3 The Lord gives this command over His people, His sanctified ones, His chosen warriors to the execution of His will upon Babylon, the enemy nations, every power and principality that rises up against us – lift up your banner, raise your voice and cry out, let those who rejoice in God’s exaltation and promotion, come up through the gates. The Lord is to display His power and excellence in sovereignty in this way:
Therefore I will shake the heavens, And the earth will move out of her place, In the wrath of the Lord of hosts And in the day of His fierce anger.” Isaiah 13:2,3,13 Be not faint-hearted, nor afraid, or terrified, and do not ever give in to panic before your enemies, do not let him gloat over you (Deut. 20.1-4). When we stand without fright before the enemy it is a sign to him, that he will be destroyed, and that we will be saved (Philip. 1.28).
Remember this as we stand in the front line of fire as we worship, that we have a God who said that He will shake up the heavens and the earth and break the chains of those who rise up against us. Fear not, and sing, raise up a battle cry, for the Lord our God goes before us, fights for us, against our enemies, and gives us victory.

There are times when life is overwhelming, when all we have is questions. In those moments, hope can feel far away. The great thing about prayer is that it shifts our perspective toward the One who stands ready to listen. No matter what you’re facing, we’d love to pray with you!
