(Psalms 142-144, 1 Corinthians 10:14-33)

Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.  (Psalm 144:1)

The Lord is Savior, Rescuer, Redeemer and also the Great Warrior King.  He is worthy of all of our worship, our full devotion and also our abandoned loyalty to His cause.  Jesus came to destroy the work of the devil (1 John 3:8).  He did not come to cohabitate with evil.  He came to destroy bondage.  He came to obliterate sickness and disease.  He came to deal with the root of sin, that separation that leads to death.

In our devotion to Christ, in our fellowship with Him, He will lead us into His continued ministry.  He trains our hands for war and our fingers for battle.  We will be fully equipped to address all that hinders love.  He will enable us to pull down the strongholds still operating over our lives. We will gain authority to tear down generational curses and even deal with regional principalities that set themselves up against the knowledge of Christ.

Today, press into His Person and His purpose. They cannot be separated.  They will not be separated.  Give yourself to the Lord’s equipping.  That this will be said of us, “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death (Revelation 12:11).”
