Pastor Michael
Sunday evening
Worship is powerful.  It is not just for us. Others are strengthened
as we worship.  We are actually fighting a battle as we worship.
Our faithfulness has effect on other people.
Gaining Territory-
The enemy tries to discourage us, but he cannot stop us because
of what is inside of us.
How to gain territory:
If God placed a desire within your heart, then He can make it happen.
4) Physically-we have joined a new blood line!
We are fighting a battle as Christians living for Jesus. Eph 6:10
Be strong in the Lord and His mighty power.
It's HIS Power.
Put on the full armor,
You have an enemy.  Know how to fight. Put on your armor.
Serve the Lord and you have the power to win every time.
Enemy knows your weakness.  Use wisom.
Put on the full armor of God and when you have done all to
stand, STAND.
Eph 6:13 Faith comes into play
Belt of truth.Can't gain by being dishonest.  Be honest.
Breastplate of righteousness. Live righteous-manner worthy of the
Name of Jesus.
Peace-peace on the inside.
God dwells in peace. Enemy tried to rob peace. The struggle is against the 
Shield of faith-Believe even when you don't see it. Embrace  each season of life.
Helmet of Salvation.
Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.  How can you battle if you are weak?
Would you send out an army if they hadn't eaten for a week?  Feed yourself 
spiritually in order to win the battle.
Pray for all of the Lord's people. Lift them up and walk with them.
You are gaining territory when:
1) you love someone who is unlovable
2) pray at home-block distractions and pray
3) think about people who need strengh and we stay strong for them
When you realize the weapon you have- who you are in Christ.
YOU are a weapon.
Joshua was used to gain territory. Josh 1:1
As I was with Moses, so I shall be with you. Be strong and courageous.
Wise, stand firm. God will use you to lead other people.
