God’s Elite Army

February 21

“A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.” Psalm 34:19.

Great heroes known for their bravery and skill are usually chosen for difficult feats that could determine the fate of a person, a family, and a nation.  They consider it an honor to be chosen for dangerous missions.

The Canadian Special Operations Forces has high-level elite teams of highly trained combat specialists in government military and security campaigns.  These teams go through rigorous training over many months before they are deployed into high level security operations.  During training, they are pushed to the limit both mentally and physically to weed out those who would not be successful in a demanding operation and mission. God also has an Elite Army of Special Forces to fight evil forces in spiritual warfare.

Tips in Spiritual warfare:

1) Do not fight aimlessly but strategically. “Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air.” 1 Cor 9:26.

2) Do not fight in the flesh but with spiritual weapons. “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” 2 Cor 10:4.

3) Fight with the end in mind.  “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” 2 Tim 4:7.

4) Remember you are not alone.  “For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” Deut 20:4.

Kingdom Declaration:

God is with me, to fight for me against all my enemies, and give me victory.
