The Word is a weapon. Use it!
I remember a time when I was experiencing a major emotional meltdown in prayer. I was battling depression, loneliness, and negative thoughts. I was frustrated, discouraged and angry. I loathed the season I was in and I wanted it to be over.
Since I was alone with God, I was in rare form. I was crying hysterically, complaining about my situation, and threatening to give up if He didn't change my trajectory. I'm sure God had compassion for me, but He was not moved or bothered by my threats.
Amid this hot mess, my thoughts spiraled out of control. That's when I realized I was under spiritual attack and the enemy wasn't taking any prisoners.
How disrespectful, inconvenient, and unfair it was for the enemy to attack me while I was weak! So, that's where I started. I declared, God when I am weak You are strong. You will never leave me and You will never forsake me. You are with me in the battle and You fight for me. No weapon formed against me will prosper. I am seated with Christ in Heavenly places. You are faithful and Your promises still stand. I kept praying, praising, and reciting God’s word. After some time, a wave of peace swept over me and I fell asleep.
The next day in prayer time, I had a vision. I saw myself in the position I was in when I was crying and reciting God’s word. I also saw what looked like plexiglass around me. Behind the plexiglass, there was a horde of military demons pushing on the glass trying to attack me. However, the plexiglass (Holy Spirit) was a shield of protection around me.
Warriors, your prayers, worship, and praise are your armor and nuclear weapons of war. Suit up and take charge now!

God, your Defender and Protector, loves you deeply.
“But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!”

“Praise the Lord, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle.”
Psalms 144:1 NLT
“No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you. “Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.””
Joshua 1:5-9 NLT
