WEEP FOR GOD’S WEAPONS
TEXT: JUDGES 15:9-17
MEMORY VERSE: “And he found a new jawbone of an ass, and put forth his hand, and took it, and slew a thousand men therewith” (JUDGES 15:15).
Cowards’ language always shows they want to remain under bondage and captivity of the enemy. This was not so for Samson. Being filled with God’s power, Samson knew that God could use the thing that is lightly esteemed in the sight of men to accomplish His purpose. By casting away the jawbone, Samson demonstrated that the power to accomplish much was not in the jawbone, but in the Spirit of God that came mightily on him initially. God himself said: “One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.”
Today, we do not employ carnal weapons in our spiritual warfare (2 Corinthians 10:4). Therefore, any born again and sanctified youth who wants to do exploits must cry out unto God for the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The word of God, righteous living, faith and prayer are other potent weapons in combating foes. Stand firm today in prayer of faith and war against all enemies of progress in your life. Your victory is sure.
QUOTE: Stand firm today in prayer.
CHALLENGE: God gives power to them that wait upon Him.
PRAYER: O God, pour thy Spirit on me, in Jesus’ name.
