The Power of His Might

People who are 'called' to serve the Lord are seldom looking for their own blessings, but are looking for those He wants to bless. They have set their desires aside for those of the Master.

In the doing of it, they encounter the Adversary on a daily basis.
They are faced with negative situations, fear, sorrow, pain, and even death,

Those things can and will take a toll on you physically, mentally, and spiritually.

"Finally . . . they realize . . . they have to BE STRONG IN THE LORD . . . and in His MIGHTY POWER." Ephesians 6
They become well armed SOLDIERS.

Wonder how one does that? Don't you?

Ususally, when I speak the word of God, two things happen. Those who serve another master can't get away fast enough, and those who serve The Master want to have a cup a coffee and talk some more.

The spoken word of God IS the "Power of His Might." Ephesians 6:10
"To those who are perishing it is the fragrance of death and to those who are being saved it is the fragrance of Life." 2 Corinthians 2:16
(Ya know ya are either perishing or being saved by how ya respond to the word of God. If ya run from it, when ya hear it; perishing. If ya run to it, when ya hear it, being saved. Ya just got to do the math . . .)

Jesus used the spoken word to defeat the Adversary in the Wilderness.
"It is written" "It is written" It is written"

When the Adversary speaks, give him the word of God. There is something about the word of God that causes him not to want to hang around those who use it.

"Who has stirred up this king from the east, rightly calling him to God's service? Who gives this man victory over many nations and permits him to trample their kings underfoot? With his SWORD, he reduces armies to dust. With his bow, he scatters them like chaff before the wind." Isaiah 41:2

The Sword of the Spirit IS His word! Ephesians 6

What good is a sword if we never use it?
