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!
Praying tough prayers
Job 42:10, ‘ And the Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.’ Job was a righteous person in the sight of God. He was one of those persons about whom the Lord Himself witnessed as a perfect and upright man (Job 1:8). Yet he was […]
We serve a prayer-answering God. It’s a great honour to serve God. We have to come to an understanding that as children of God we can get to another level. There’s a great anointing in this church but we have to step out to be deeper in concentration with God.
The taller a building is, the deeper the foundations. The higher you want to go with God, the deeper you have to go with God. God is waiting for people that want to hunger desperately for Him.
Those that seek Him with all their heart will receive the anointing. This anointing is not free and it has a cost.

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!
