Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.12.

Walk in the Holy Ghost Romans 14:17, John 14:27, peace is power in spiritual warfare because when you know the truth, and walk in Gods peace, satan cannot prevail over you in any area of your life8. Ask God for a discerning spirit so you can see what He means for you to see, and know what He means for you to know John 14:26; John 16:139. Prayer walk your house the inside and the outside; prayer walk the property; pray the Word of God over where you live. 10. Consecrate the place where you work; pray inviting Gods presence into your workplace</p> <p>Words are containers for power! They can carry creative orDestructive power. Since Gods Word is full of life and life-giving power, a wise person will learn and speak the Word of God rather than any other word.Joyce Meyer, The Word, The Name, The Blood</p> <p>**Next Session: Praise &amp; Worship as weapons of war</p> <p>Wednesday Night Bible Study - January 30th, 2013Facilitator: Donna R.
