This Sunday, God gave me a word about the python spirit trying to bind many of God’s people to demoralize, distract, and destroy. This spirit’s job is to squeeze the life out of people through sickness, financial hardship, loss of purpose, family troubles, etc. It wants to stop us from speaking by crushing the life out of us – if we are not on guard and WAR DAILY!

Remember Ephesians 6:11-13, “Put on ALL of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil…use Every Piece of Armor to resist the enemy in the time of evil…” The enemy has the patience and endurance to outlast us if we don’t remember to use the tools God has given us to resist and defeat him.

God’s strategy and weapons of warfare equip us to War Daily – first in our mind and heart and then against the opposition. It’s not by human power or might, but by His Spirit that we loosen the bonds the enemy uses to TRY to defeat us.

We cut them off with the Sword of the Spirit and Crush them under our feet. You know God has made us the Head, not the tail, so don’t let the enemy tell you otherwise. War against all lies. Live as the Victor – because you ARE the Victor – satan was defeated at the Cross!

You have everything you need to succeed – now fight the good fight of faith!

Great warriors are encouraged and learn from other great warriors. So, send me your brief testimonies of how you have overcome so we can encourage each other in the battle!

“Now stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all Christians everywhere” (Eph. 6:18). And put on the whole armor of God each day!

See you on the battlefield!
