Our most powerful weapon is love.
For those who carry love, now is the time for its release.
This weapon of love is strategic. It does not operate as a one-size-fits-all solution, but adapts to the needs of every situation. It is the love of God which has been poured into our hearts (Rom. 5:5).
We cannot understand all the workings of this love; we didn’t create it. Our trust in its creator determines the degree to which we trust this love. It operates through creative mystery. It carries wisdom and foreknowledge which already address the strengths and weaknesses of every foe. We need never fear that our arsenal is insufficient.
Love is also the safest weapon; it only overcomes its opposition. All else, love enriches, so allowing it to freely flow does no harm.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Eph 6:12 ESV)
Jesus told His disciples, “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” (Mat. 10:16 ESV)
This is kingdom warfare.
I love this life.
Today I saw love as the water Dorothy threw at the wicked witch (The Wizard of Oz). Water is typically a life-giving blessing, but it caused wickedness to melt and disappear.
