  The problem with a lot of Christians today, is that we are busy fighting spiritual battles with carnal weapons.

''...For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds...''  {2 CORINTHIANS 10:4 KJV}

There are battles to fight and you have been equipped by God to confront your confrontations and attack your attackers. God has given you the arsenal you need. It is however, not enough to be armed and dangerous to the enemy; you must be ready to deploy your spiritual weapons.

Do you remember the story of Esther? Even though she was royalty, a time came when she and her people were confronted with a life threatening situation. She had to rise to the situation. The situation was critical and only the supernatural intervention of God could deliver them. She knew that the fight was not carnal but spiritual. As a queen, she knew she could deploy her soldiers, but this was a spiritual fight and she needed to fight with spiritual weapons. She declared a fast and locked herself up alongside her maidens to pray. One spiritual weapon available to you as a believer is the potency of prayers.

God knows that you live in a world where the enemy tries to intimidate you and back you off into a corner. He knows that you have no any other power so He fashioned our weapons of warfare from heaven so that you can possess your possession. Beloved, there's power in prayers. Mordecai and Esther, and all their brethren, fasted for 3 solid days & nights. They made preparations. They received the word of God in their spirit. They received the spiritual bullet to confront their confrontations.

If Esther had not acted, it would have been a total wipe out of the Jews living in the kingdom because according to the laws of the Medes and Persia, a law had been passed that could never be violated. I challenge you to get into the place of prayers today. Don't relent in your prayers.

Pray until something breaks in the realm of the Spirit.

Many people have always asked me this question; how does a believer become righteous? The answer is simple! The day you gave your heart to Christ, you became righteous.

''For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh." Romans 8:3
  You don't need to do anything to be righteous. Acceptance is predicated on Jesus' sacrifice and not on you. God looks at Jesus' holiness and accepts you in the beloved. It's not about you, it's about Jesus. He paid the ultimate price so that you can be accepted in the beloved.

This understanding will create in you, boldness. When you received Jesus into your heart, without doing anything, His rightness became your right. Right believing produces right living. When you believe wrongly, you will never live rightly (2Corinthians 5 verse 21). Jesus was made sin for us. He who knew no sin so that we may be made the righteousness of God. It's a gift that has been given to us free of charge.

The Holy Spirit bears witness with the truth you have received and He changes you from glory to glory. Your change is a process. 2 Corinthians 3:18 says "We all with open face beholding as in a mirror His image". Your true image is not failure or sin, your true image is in Christ. So, when you see your true image, you are being changed into that very image from glory to glory. The word of God says - now are we sons of God. It says now, and not when we get to heaven. The fact that you slipped on your pathway to pleasing God doesn't make you a sinner. Once you believe in Him, you have eternal life. You have life and you have it more abundantly.

Don't allow the devil to harass you today because of ignorance. Believe in the finished work of Christ on the cross and live in the reality of the righteousness that was freely given to you. Understand and thank God that you are accepted in the beloved.

One of the things you must settle in your heart this year is that God is for you.

"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31 (KJV)

  God is for you irrespective of the challenges you may be facing. Your clear understanding of this fact will guide your attitude throughout the year and beyond. Even if you think the world is throwing lemons at you, if you have the right attitude, you will make lemonades out of it and make a profit. Your situation is as bad or as good as you see it. Like the popular phrase "Half full and half empty", it depends on you. If you see the glass as half full, you will see opportunities all around you, but if you see it as half empty, you will see lack and hunger all around you. Have you stopped to think that if there were no lemons, there would have been no lemonade?

  Remember the story of David and the raid of the Amalekites. Can you imagine what would have happened if all he did was sit and wail and mourn? No matter how much God wanted to restore to him all he lost, it could never have happened because God would not have been able to help him. Yes, David cried, yes, he lamented, but more importantly, he sought the face of God. He knew that even in the difficult times, God was still for him.

Child of God, throughout this year and beyond, settle it deep within your spirit, make it a daily confession until you become one with it, that God is for you. Never let the devil steal this truth from your spirit. Be fully persuaded that He is for you and not only that, know that no one can be against you because the greater One lives in you. One with God is a majority. No matter the wind, your anchor is firmly on the solid rock and nothing can move you.

There is a bright future ahead of you; God's thoughts towards you are thoughts of peace. He will take you to your expected end. This year, you will pursue, overtake and recover all. I will hear your testimony in Jesus' name.

There are revelations in the scripture you must be established in.

"In righteousness, thou shall be established." (Isaiah 54:14)
  You must be founded in this scriptures. You must stick and secure yourself in righteousness. 
As long as you don't understand righteousness you cannot function as God on earth and yet that is God's intention. He wants you to rule over your circumstances. When the devil attacks you, he attacks the image of God. Righteousness was bestowed on you so that you can do right.

The devil's assignment is to damage your understanding of righteousness. We have been taught over time to believe that we have to do right to be righteous. That is taking it backwards. You don't have to work for righteousness, it's in a believers' DNA. We are made in the image of God. God made you righteous so that you have a right standing with Him. Adam hid himself from God because he sinned. If you hide from God, who will help you?

Child of God, righteousness is your bill of Rights. You are to wave it in the face of the devil at every point in time. Righteousness was given to you so that you can stand before God without any sense of sin, inferiority or condemnation. You are to stand before God as if sin does not exist because once you are a believer, He forgives and forgets your wrongdoings.

Your personal works of righteousness are like filthy rags before God; they are dirty(Isaiah 54:6). If your personal works are dirty, then you cannot afford to neglect the free gift of Jesus - the righteousness that gives you freedom to approach God boldly.

Live in this knowledge today and put the devil to shame. It is well with you.
