This charge and admonition I commit in trust to you, Timothy, my son, in accordance with prophetic intimations which I formerly received concerning you, so that inspired and aided by them you may wage the good warfare.” 1 Timothy 1:18 AMP

Many people don’t experience a turnaround because they give up on waiting. Paul was telling Timothy to war with the prophetic word. Maybe the Lord has told you many things and it seems as if it’s taking too long. There are two things you need as you wait for manifestation. 

Lift up over all the [covering] shield of saving faith, upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [one].” Ephesians 6:16 AMP

The shield of faith is to protect your spiritual mind from satanic delusion so that you keep on standing. In other words hold fast to God’s Word and meditate on it concerning that situation. 

And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields, which is the Word of God.” Ephesians 6:17 AMP

The sword of the Spirit is an offensive weapon against satan and his cohorts of demons. Use it against satan. Take the Name of Jesus Christ and attack every wicked spirit trying to intimidate, distract and hinder you. And trust completely on the Lord Jesus Christ as you do for the battle is not yours but the Lord’s. That’s why we’re commissioned to use His Name not ours. 

It’s time to press in the battle. I guarantee you, victory is ours in Jesus Christ mighty Name, Amen. 

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. Help me by Your Spirit to wage a good warfare even as I am expecting a turnaround in my situation in Jesus Christ mighty Name, Amen.
