Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 09/25/11

This week’s scripture is from Nehemiah:

“Those who carried materials did their work with one hand and held a weapon in the other, and each of the builders wore his sword at his side as he worked.”                 (Nehemiah 4:17b-18a)

Across the land, around the world, spiritual warfare is increasing. The enemy is stepping up his assaults. But this is not a time to draw back. In Nehemiah the Lord has instructed us how to take on the enemy in times of opposition: build with one hand and fight with the other. So take up the armor of God; strap on the sword of the spirit. Send forth the word and cut down the enemy’s strongholds. Set watchmen on the walls and carry on the work of the Lord. Keep building and fighting until He returns, for the battle belongs to the Lord and He fights for us if we will stand and keep standing. Draw the sword; call on His name.

May the Lord bless you as you continue the good fight in the building of His kingdom.
