The scripture above is a verse from a song written by Moses after God appointed Joshua as his successor to lead the Israelites into Canaan. The scripture denotes the strength in unity, the power in agreement and the flight of the enemies of God when his people arise to take territories. Moses wrote the song to encourage and strengthen the people and to show them what God was about to do with their enemies. “if I sharpen my flashing sword and my hand takes hold on judgment, I will take vengeance on my adversaries and will repay those who hate me” (Deuteronomy 32:41).
We know that our God is a consuming fire and he goes before us and consumes all his enemies (Psalm 97:3). No one will be able to stand against us all the days of our lives, as long as we have God as our rock and our defence. God is our strong tower and our refuge and hiding place. He is a great and terrible God and there is no other God like him. God will arise in his might and defend his children and we will not lose a battle when God fights for us. We pray and stand on the word of the Lord. We worship him and declare his promises. We will not grow weary when we are tested and tried, but we will go forward in Jesus Name.
We do not fight in our own strength and the war we wage is not in the flesh. Our weapons are spiritual and we take the fight out of the realms of the natural. We bind things on earth and they are bound in heaven. We ask God to show us the strategy for each battle and we take authority over every stronghold. We bind every strongman in the name of Jesus Christ. “But no one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. Then indeed he may plunder his house” (Mark 3:27).
We are taking back territories for God and we advance to establish the kingdom. We are here to establish dominion and we scatter the enemies plans and schemes against the children of God. We raise a standard of prayer and intercession and we put the enemy to flight. We raise a shout of victory as we advance and we raise our voices in praise and worship. We will not be denied in this season as we contend for the promises.
“Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain” (Isaiah 40:4).
