2 Corinthians 10:4 – Powerful Weapons

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 1:1‐2:22, 2 Corinthians 10:1‐18, Psalm 52:1‐9, Proverbs 22:26‐27

2 Corinthians 10:4 – For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.

Context: Paul is defending his ministry.  He wants the church in Corinth to understand that he is doing the work of God and is not working for selfish gain.

Observations:

  • The weapons of our warfare – the tools we use in our fight
  • Are not of the flesh – carnal or material
  • But have divine power –mighty strength from God
  • To destroy strongholds – tear down fortresses

Apply: I must minister with confidence in the weapons God has given me to destroy strongholds.

How should an awareness of the supernatural tools you have affect your walk?

  1. The awareness that we are equipped by God with supernatural tools brings me confidence to stand in the face of the enemy, but it also motivates me to be purposeful in doing the work of the kingdom — proclaim the good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to the captives, recover sight to the blind, set free those who are oppressed, and declae the year of the Lord’s favor. I pray for help to stay focused on these things.

    1. Yes! Charon, I am so thankful for the tools he has given us. I enjoyed reading through the armor of God today. He has given us all we need to STAND!
