GLORIOUS WORD DEVOTIONAL
THE GOD OF PEACE IS ALSO THE GOD OF WAR
(Exodus 17:15; Judges 6:24 ) And Moses built an altar and called its name, Jehovah-Nissi (The-Lord-Is-My-Banner)…. So Gideon built an altar there to the Lord, and called it The-Lord-Is-Peace (Jehovah-Shalom). To this day it is still in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.
Our theme scriptures for today are attesting to the fact that God is peaceful but strikes when He has to, especially for the safety of His people. Exodus 17: 12-15 reports that “But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this for a memorial in the book and recount it in the hearing of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.” And Moses built an altar and called its name, The-Lord-Is-My-Banner (Jehovah-Nissi).
These scriptures show that God fought for His children. After gaining victory, Moses built an altar there and called it The-Lord-Is-My-Banner (Jehovah-Nissi). This same God who is a warrior (Jehovah-Nissi) showed Himself as the God who is peace to Gideon (Judges 6:24). Since you were created in God’s image, be peaceful as much as possible but war when you have to (Genesis 1:27). In our day, we don’t war with flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this age, and spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12). Start waring in prayer now! Halleluyah!
Activity: Start waring in prayer now!
Confession: My God is both the God of peace and war. Since I was created in His image and likeness, I also declare that I am peaceful but would war when I have to. As I war in prayer today, the activities of principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this age, and spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places are destroyed now! Halleluyah!
Say this if you have never been born again. I declare from today that Jesus Christ is my Lord and I believe that God raised Him from the dead.
You can begin to attract God’s goodness into your life from today.
