February 18 – Three Weapons of War

“And the Lord said unto Gideon, By the three hundred men that lapped will I save you, and deliver the Midianites into thine hand…” Judges 7:7a

Judges 7 records the story of Gideon’s victory over the enemy with only three hundred men. Take another look at the weapons of war that God used for the victory:

1) An empty jar…the vessel had to be broken.

2) A smoldering torch…ignited to flame when the vessel was broken.

3) A trumpet…a ram’s horn, sounded in praise.

God still promises to give you victory over the enemies of your life with these three weapons:

1) A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP…represented by a broken, submitted heart toward God.

2) THE HOLY SPIRIT…represented by a spirit on fire for God and His righteousness.

3) PRAISE AND WORSHIP…your voice singing out loudly, as a trumpet sounds, bringing glory and honor to God.

Let God win those battles of life. Look to Him for the VICTORY. Use the right weapons. Here they are again:

1) Walk in A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP with God.

2) Be filled with THE HOLY SPIRIT.

3) Lift your voice in PRAISE AND WORSHIP.

PRAY: “Father, Gideon’s deliverance was wonderful! I thank You that these words are meant for me even today. Let’s go forward into battle! In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.”
