Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Maintaining a War Footing”
Text: Nehemiah 4:17
“Those who built on the wall, and those who carried burdens, loaded themselves so that with one hand they worked at construction, and with the other held a weapon.”
“Maintaining a War Footing,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Let’s be clear on this “War Footing,” my fellow Warrior! A Spiritual War Footing is “a stable position that is prepared to engage our spiritual enemy And Maintain War against him!” Ooooh Rah!
Note, that this is both initial engagement of the enemy and Also Maintaining this engagement of War until we Destroy his Will to resist us.
This is what Nehemiah’s strategy was for his fellow Warriors. “With one hand work at construction and with the other hand hold a weapon!” Nehemiah and his Warrior’s were Prepared to engage the enemies around them and to Maintain that engagement until they Destroyed their enemies will to resist! And they accomplished their mission by destroying their enemies will to resist them, this time. However their would be more battles on the horizon, yet the War Footing Strategy would again be Deployed!
They were on a War Footing!
Listen up Warrior! A Warrior is more than just a fighter; they are someone who follows a code of conduct that determines their very values and ethics.
Our code of conduct, values, and ethics are rooted in Scripture, the Words of our Commander and King Jesus Christ. Our Commander is on a War Footing with our enemy the devil - so this means that His Warrior’s must also be on a War Footing against the devil’s crew.
Like Nehemiah and his fellow Warriors; we build our walls of righteousness with one hand, for our heart, for our family, and for our church community - we do this by the way we live and what we practice in everything we do.
In our other hand we hold our weapon the Sword of God’s Word; that we read, chew, and meditate upon for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner with Holy Spirit and our Commander every day.
Yes, the Warrior builds walls of Righteousness with one hand, and the Warrior holds the All Powerful Weapon of the Word of God in the other hand. With both hands, at all times, We Maintain a War Footing against our enemy the devil! Oooh Rah!
Let’s sing the song:
“With the high praises of God in my mouth
And a two-edged Sword in my hand
I will March right on to the victory side
Right into Canaan land!” Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
