Wielding a Great Weapon

I have an awesome weapon.

This weapon terrifies my enemies.

This weapon can be called forth into my battles even if I absent-mindedly leave it at home when I leave the house.

This weapon can be carried through any metal detector or security perimeter, yet it is one of the most powerful and deadly weapons I have ever witnessed.

It does not take a lot of training to learn its basic operation.

My weapon has a unique feature. Rather than point it at my enemy and shoot, I actually turn my back on my enemy, and aim at my greatest Ally, my Commander.

When I aim this weapon at the Commander a number of things happen all at once.

My enemy shrinks down to a size I can easily defeat.

My courage in increased.

The fog and smoke that the enemy uses to confuse and confound me vanish and I can see clearly.

What is this amazing weapon?

PRAISE

Here is how it works:

  • I turn my self around and face Jesus, and begin to praise Him.
  • I speak of His wonderful characteristics.
  • I exalt His majestic nature.
  • I tell of His marvelous victories in the past.
  • I recite His great names through which He has revealed Himself to me.
  • I rehearse the things He has spoken over me.
  • I convey His omnipotent power.
  • I remember His great love for me.

By the time I turn around to deal with my enemy, that old scoundrel has left the arena.

Are you armed and dangerous today? [Tweet This]

Lord, I thank you for giving us a weapon that changes the atmosphere, and that drives our enemy into hiding. You are worthy of all our praise. Bless Your great name: Jesus.

for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete. - 2 Corinthians 10:4-6

Ben NelsonThanks for stopping by.

    The Bible clearly says God inhabits the praise of His people. If we truly learned praise, we would not have the down-in-the-mouth demeanor we so often have.
