The One Weapon Satan Fears the Most

Sunday, November 18, 2012

“The weapons we use in our fight are not the world’s weapons but God’s powerful weapons, which we use to destroy strongholds.” (2Cor. 10:4, Good New Bible)

We have an arsenal not made by human hands, but is stocked full with the powerful weapons fashioned by God Himself. They aren’t for marketing or manipulation of any sort, but are specifically designed to demolish demonic strongholds-putting down every false argument raised against Truth. These weapons have the power of God to destroy the enemy’s efforts against our Faith.

Prayer is one of these weapons, and when it is coupled with the Word of God it possesses a power that is invincible. It is the one weapon Satan fear the most. That’s why the early disciples said, “We will devote ourselves to prayer, and to the ministry of the Word.” When we follow their example, we will experience the same results that happened for them.

Let’s look at a remarkable example found in the Scriptures.

When Joshua was battling the armies of the Amalekites in the valley of Rephidim, the Bible tells us that Moses was on the mountain lifting up the Rod which God had given him. As long as the Rod was held up, Joshua advanced in battle. When Moses’ arms grew weary and he lowered the Rod, the enemy began to make advances against Joshua. Aaron and Hur, two of Moses’ friends, stood beside him and held his arms up-the result was a overwhelming victory for Joshua. (Ex. 17:8-13).

The eyes of the LORD search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him. Jesus said that when we pray in secret, God will reward us openly. An example of this happened in Jerusalem when the disciples gathered in prayer and “the place where they were assembled was shaken.” They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and preached the Word of God with boldness-even in the face of death threats.

This brief scan of the biblical record proves the age old adage-“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much!” (James 5:16). Prayer makes tremendous power available, the kind of power that is dynamic in its working and effective in its results; great power that produces wonderful results.

Why not pray today and look for happens as a result. You just might find yourself praying every day! For, after all, you are wielding the one weapon that Satan fears the most!

God bless you, Pastor Mike

    Pray without ceasing! My hope is that all of my life is as a sweet aroma of prayer to the Lord. I often fall short but He is ever faithful.

    I always have an open line of communication with God, both when things trouble me and when I am joyous! That's what friends do in a relationship. He is my best friend and knows what's in my heart . . . always.
