The Possibilities are Endless

1“ and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, 12 so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.”

1 Thessalonians 4:11, NIV

Set big goals for yourself. Don’t aim for just any goals aim for the hardest possible one. If you concentrate on goals that you can surely achieve, you will be limiting yourself from the rest of your potential. Challenge yourself to attain a level you never thought was possible. You will not reach this goal overnight, you might even experience a lot of failure on the way but the it is certain that if you keep your eye on the prize, you will get closer to it day by day.

There are endless possibilities that wait you when you believe in yourself. You fuel your potential when you choose to be ambitious. Dream big without arrogance and you will pave your way to excellence. Getting to where you want is a matter of truly wanting what you want. If you want something so bad it is as good as yours. The world is a bad place if you make it so. Your life is a mess if you choose it to be so.

The things around you are as they are because that is how you make them to be. If you want to make changes, you must envision them in order for it to manifest. Excellence is a tall order to request of a person. Perfection might be something we can never achieve but the struggle to stay as close to it as we can shows character.

Finding the Courage

In the context of spiritual warfare, our spiritual authority is based on the acknowledgement that we are in Christ and that God gave us the authority to overcome the enemy. Spiritual authority is based on faith in Christ, not faith in ourselves. We pray in tongues in the process of the ministry of inner healing and deliverance because we know we need God to be able to help fellow believers undergo this process.

Demons will try to convince believers that they do not have any authority in this matter. Authority is not a feeling. If believers feel scared or inadequate, it does not mean that they have less authority. Christ’s authority over demons is not diminished by the lack of courage or confidence on our part in ourselves. Instead, we need to be sure of Christ’s authority. It is through Jesus that we are able to have authority over these demons. However, Christians are no threat to Satan when we do not declare Christ’s authority because of our doubts and fears of personal inadequacy

Do you feel somewhat inadequate in fighting your life’s battles? Do you still have fears that you need to overcome? Bernard Jordan has written a book called “Spiritual Art of War” which can help you overcome all the obstacles in winning your life’s battles. Inspired by Sun Tzu’s “Art of War”, this book has Biblical passages and strategies that will encourage you to fight your wars and battles here on earth. Remember that God is a God of victory and that He wishes for you to be victorious. Click here to read the Spiritual Art of War today.

David and Goliath

davidIn life’s battles, God has his prophetic art of war. In your life particularly, He has plans for your victory and success in whatever wars you face. You just have to read through the Bible and study on numerous accounts that God has won for His people.

A good example from the Bible has to be the story of David and Goliath. Let’s look at that Scripture to see an example of the prophetic art of war in action: In 1 Samuel 17, Saul and the men of Israel go to war against the Philistines yet again. Verse 4 reads, “And a champion went out from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, from Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span.” We know from this passage that Goliath is an influencer in the Philistine armies; his height and his fighting skills have made him a leader among his people. In verses 8-9, Goliath challenges the men of Israel to send their own champion to fight him: if Goliath kills the Israelite champion, Israel will serve the Philistines, and vice-versa.

I’m sure you’re familiar with the rest of the story: only David, youngest among his brothers, has the courage to fight Goliath. After he fells him with a stone from his sling, he cuts off Goliath’s head with his own sword—and all the Philistines flee (1 Samuel 17:51).

There are five dangerous faults that may affect a general:

1. Recklessness, which leads to destruction

2. Cowardice, which leads to capture

3. A hasty temper, which can be provoked by insults

4. A delicacy of honor, which is sensitive to shame

5. Too much compassion for his men, which exposes him to worry and trouble.

Who Are We Fighting Against?

Life is a battlefield: you have individuals and organizations competing for the same resources, and often that competition turns ugly. If you want to get ahead, you’re going to have to overcome obstacles, or find ways around them.

As believers, we know that behind this struggle there is another, much deeper, and ultimate struggle: as it is written in the Scripture, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12). But how to we fight against these things? What are the things that we need in order to win the battles life throws at us?

The Spiritual Art of War reveals a variety of strategies in order for you to win your battles for the Lord. God is a God of victory and as long as you have Him by your side, you are surely going to win. There are many dark things that surround you; it may manifest itself in your co-workers, bosses, or business partner. You need to learn how to identify these threats and fight against it. Are you ready to get on the battlefield?

The Master Strategist

God is a God of war. He wins battles for his children and desires victory for those who love Him. Based on Scripture, God has been an incredible strategist, winning battles left and right.

From Genesis to Revelation, God reveals to His people His master kingdom strategy for the prophetic art of war. Time and again, the people God chooses to lead the Children of Israel are prophets: in 1 Samuel, for example, David is in a bind. He’s on the run from Saul, in a stronghold in the land of Moab. As verse 5 says, “Now the prophet Gad said to David, ‘Do not stay in the stronghold; depart, and go to the land of Judah’” (v. 22:5a).

God used Moses and Joshua as prophets, to lead the Children of Israel in many successful battles. Prophets are the master strategists of the kingdom of God. Let God use you today in fulfilling His purpose and will for your life. He wants you to be victorious in everything that you do. Read the Spiritual Art of War and learn how to be a master strategist in life!
