FRIDAY, JANUARY 18
Scripture: Luke 22:35,36
Jesus makes it clear that every one of us have to come to a transition and that transition involves buying a sword. When we buy a sword we literally engraft His covenant promise that His judicial sword will move in our behalf when we are threatened. When an enemy comes in to threaten our harvest field, it is our job by the Spirit to pray the Hand of God and the Sword of the Lord on the enemy. It is our job to ask that if they will not relent, God Himself will remove them. For most Christians, that is a hard thing to do because it utterly goes against our traditions and what we have been taught. When we look at the ascendency of evil in one nation after another, it should not be hard to ask for covenant justice.
