I feel like posting a few songs here to boost your spirit today. The first song I have is this amazing song by James Fortune & FIYA called More Like You.
The next song is an older song by J Moss called Faith which I just heard today. I just love the beat of this song! It’s saved as one of my favourites. I think that when a person is filled with doubts, despair, fears etc, it’s important to anchor your faith in God in any crisis. My interest in the topic of spiritual warfare comes from going through many battles since I was a young child up until now. God has taught me to fight with Him as my anchor of strength. Yes, I did battle real spiritual oppression, but I also had to deal with battling antagonistic people as well especially when I got saved at aged 16 while I lived in China before I moved to Canada. Spiritual warfare goes beyond just dealing with demonic forces, witchcraft, curses, and spiritual oppression. I believe that the ultimate battle that anyone may face in life, is the one that you will have with your mind. The great thing is, we can rest assured that we can win any battle we face if remember what mind we want to anchor ourselves with. I choose to have the mind of Christ Jesus, because with Him on my side, I cannot lose.
For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
[ Living Before God Our Father ] Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
When you anchor your faith in God, you will have the mind of Christ in everything you do. This can only be made manifest in your life if you meditate and read your Bible to gain revelation of what is written through the scriptures. Reading on the topic of spiritual warfare pro-actively is also beneficial to any Christian wanting to walk victoriously in life as you gain wisdom on what it means to have The Mind of Christ.
I personally endeavor to cultivate not only having the mind of Christ but having the heart of Christ Jesus in my personal walk. Jesus walked with such a grace that held such immense authority that darkness had to flee and tremble at the mention of His name. Can you imagine what it would be like if as Christians we fully embraced our identity and authority in Christ Jesus and walked around the cities we lived in and people would just get healed or delivered simply because your shadow touched them or your hand brushed their body? Can you imagine a world with people operating at this high level of Faith? Well, the reason why we don’t often see these types of things happening is because our minds won’t go there. I believe that as Christians, we should strive to do greater things than what we already know has been done in the Bible. In fact, I believe the Lord encourages this…so in your personal time with God, seek to do the greater things and pray for the Lord to show you how you can do greater works than these to impact the Kingdom of God here on Earth, Amen! 😀
[ The Answered Prayer ] “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
