Entering the War Room

by | May 26, 2016 | Devotional | 3 comments


Have you seen the movie “War Room”? If you haven’t, I highly recommend it! Talk about an eye-opening, heart-touching reminder on the power of prayer!

I needed to see that movie because I needed a boost in my prayer life. Not that it wasn’t up to par or anything, but once in a while, I just need a little push — a push to remind me that God can do anything, a push to remind me there is power in prayer, a push to remind me that God hears each and every one.

I’m fighting a battle. You are fighting a battle. We are all fighting some kind of battle — and you know what? We are at war! Spiritual war.

The devil works hard to squeeze into my life — and you know what? He’s not going to win. He tries to sneak in at the cracks, and I’m not falling for it anymore. I’m ready for battle. I’m ready to win. I’m putting on the armor of God every day. I’m devoting more time to prayer. I’m ready to fight this with Him by my side. I’m ready to take a stand because the power of prayer and the power of God will take him down.

God wants me to feel joy, peace, and contentment. I have these things in my life and will fight to keep them. The devil doesn’t want me to feel that way, and he thinks he can cause turmoil. Nope. Ain’t gonna happen. God is the core of my family unit, and as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. My husband and I pray for our children and the protection of their little minds and hearts. We know God will protect them from the evil one and pray they will recognize the devil’s tactics. He sure can be sneaky.

The devil wants me to feel fearful, anxious, like a failure, and like I’m not good enough. He wants to whisper those thoughts in my ears while he sits back and laughs. Well, I’ve got news for him. I’m not giving him a chance to do that. Not to my husband, children, or myself. I’m geared up and ready to fight! This is a battle that he’s not going to win!

The evil one can take back his spirit of fear, his whispers of not being worthy, of being a failure, and of not being good enough, because there’s no place for that in my life. As the main character in “War Room” says, he needs to take it all back to hell with him where he belongs. We are soldiers ready to fight!

    Inspiring words, Sister. We watched War Room as a branch family night. I also recommend reading the book, Fervent. It is written by Priscilla Shirer, the actress in the movie. We just studied the armor of God last night in Ladies’ Circle. The armor protects us from the wiles of the devil as explained in the scripture. You are right the enemy is seeking to destroy, but through prayer, we are warriors.

    How Great is GOD, sometimes he wakes us up when we least expect it.
