Worship & Warfare Part 1

Jan 24, 2023

Our priorities must be right

We have a dual responsibility as worshippers and warriors. Worship is our response to God and warfare is our response to the devil. If we resist him, he will flee, and when we know how to fight a good warfare, he is defeated. Worship transforms our lives, and warfare transforms our circumstances, so it’s a win-win for us if we know how to effectively conduct the rules of engagement that God has given us for spiritual warfare.

Our warfare will however never be effective until we have prioritized worship as the foundation from which we warfare. If we try and fight the enemy without having developed intimacy with God as a way of life, we will lose our battles. Intimacy with God is what He loves and the devil fears because it’s from that place of intimacy we get our authority. The reality is that we are called to worship God continually and fight the devil occasionally. If it’s the other way round, you’re giving the devil too much attention in your life and you will tire yourself out. It’s time for the Church to focus more on worship.


The good fight

We are called to fight the good fight of faith. A good fight is one that you win, so that you can lay hold on eternal life, and not allow the enemy to rob you of God’s promises.

1 Timothy 6:12 - Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 

Faith makes the fight a good one, and you will always have more than enough faith to overcome every battle. An absolute trust in the integrity of what God has said in His word is your best weapon and defense to win every battle. God trains us in the gym called ‘faith’, and every child of God has the potential to be a ‘world champion’, an over-comer who knows no defeat.

2 Corinthians 2:14 - Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ and diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.


Every battle is ‘fixed’ for your victory

God will not allow the enemy to pick a fight with you that you cannot win. If we trust in God, the Holy Spirit will only allow fights for us that He gives us the capacity and strategies to win.

 1 Corinthians 10:13 - No temptation has overtaken you such as is common to man, but God is faithful who with the temptation will make a way of escape that you may be able to bear it.

Jesus total victory over the devil left him a defeated and a powerless foe, but we must have this revelation. As you meditate on the fact that you are covenant child of God and know His promises to heal, deliver, prosper and so on, nothing will overtake you. Our challenge is to believe the extent of the devil’s defeat, and the overwhelming authority we have over him. 

2 Corinthians 2:14 - Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ and diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.


Life application:

Meditate on 1 Timothy 6:12, 1 Corinthians 10:13, 2 Corinthians 2:14. It might be good to write them down and speak them out as a victorious declaration (using these specific scriptures). This is the essence of Biblical petition; to write down scriptures pertaining to your situation and declare them over your life stating your case with thanksgiving to God. This assures your praying according to God’s will (word) for you.  Your petition could be something like this:

Father, I come before your throne of grace as a covenant child and declare that every battle I now face or will in the future is known by You and covered by your grace for me to be victorious. Thank you in Jesus name.
