THE EMPOWERMENT ZONE BLOG: A TIMELY WORD TO ENCOURAGE, EXHORT AND EDIFY:Vol 4, Blog 5-HAVING DONE ALL TO STAND JUST STAND

Stand and Defend

We must learn how to stand and defend

Victory in warfare depends upon opportunity and skill. An ill-equipped team of

fighters can win occasional victory if the circumstance is favourable to them.

However a group of skilled warriors can fight and win even when contrary winds

are blowing and the circumstance is disadvantageous to them. Hence skill is more

important than opportunity in warfare. Having both opportunity and skill is the

perfect combination for an easy victory in combat warfare.

 

The skills we acquire in life depends to a large extent on where we acquired them

and who is our trainer. A mediocre trainer can only impart mediocre skills. An

excellent trainer will impart excellent skills. However what use are armours and

weapons if we are not skilled enough to make use of them? It is important to be

BOTH armed and trained (Genesis 14:14). Thank God because He still teaches our

hands to war and our fingers to fight.

 

Who is better at equipping warriors with essential skills for victorious warfare

than God who has never lost a battle? When God trains us, there can be no

lapses:Warriors are not born, they are made. They are trained. God is in the business of

teaching us.

 

Stand and Defend, my proposed definition- to maintain a spiritual position of

defense, during a lengthy confrontation, not allowing the enemy to gain the

advantage. Although you may be at a disadvantage, your spiritual endurance and

ability to skillfully use your armour and weapons will allow you to win the war and

thus demonstrates God’s Power.

 

Having done all to stand JUST STAND!
