I have not just given you a shield to hold but I have given you a sword to wield, as one who is for me. See that you are called to not only to defend my victory but also to enforce my victory in the days and season ahead; this day I will train and mark you as a ‘victory enforcer’.
The days ahead are days of training and preparation for battle. The Lord is training you in how to defend a cause but also how to enforce His victory in your personal life, family life, work life and any other areas you have been given influence in. The Lord is teaching you how to steward the gifts that He has given you as weapons rather than ‘hobbies’. All gifts – both ‘natural’ and Spiritual – He has given to His people so that the Kingdom of Heaven would be extended and expanded across the earth.
The Lord chooses you as His ‘victory enforcer’, His ‘kingdom expander’ and He calls you into training camp so that He might sharpen your weapons, strengthen your mind, body and soul, ignite your passion and release within you a new level of His victory. All He requires is that you come to Him as a willing and obedient ‘student’, so that you might be trained into a bold and skilled ‘victory enforcer’.
It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places. He teaches my hands to make war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.
