Psalm 110:3 “Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. Arrayed in holy splendor, your young men will come to you like dew from the morning's womb.”
For many Christians that thought of being part of a troop is a foreign idea. A troop would indicate some kind of army, battle and a fight. After all is the Kingdom God not one of righteousness, peace and joy? Aren’t we all for peace not war?
The truth is when we are born again we were conscripted into the Lord’s army. We are the bride of Christ but we wear army boots. There are many verses that speak of the battle we are in. A battle indicates a fight. Paul's says we are to fight the good fight of faith, that we are not to be unaware of the enemy’s devices and that the weapons we fight with are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
We are in a battle and we are in the Lord’s army. The best part for us is the victory is assured. Jesus has already defeated the enemy. Colossians says He took captivity captive and disarmed the powers and authorities. He triumphed over them by the cross. Therefore, when we see the enemy at work we can humble ourselves under His might hand, resist the devil and he will flee. (James 4:7) Jesus has secured our victory and now we get to enforce it.
This scripture in the Psalm says we are arrayed in holy splendor. As The King’s sons and daughters we are royalty through Him. We are seated in heavenly realms and are clothed in a beautiful robe of righteousness. That robe displays the beauty of the King in whose kingdom we willingly serve. The battle is on for the souls of men. The trumpet call is out and the King is waking us up. It's time to take up our shield of faith and the sword of the spirit. We are called to put on the whole armor of God so that when the day of evil comes, we can take our stand against the devils schemes. (Ephesians 6:13)
Prayer: “Father I thank you that our victory is in you. I ask that you would rouse me, give me revelation and discernment so I can see the fight I am in. Thank you for strength to fight and the victory we have in the name of Jesus.”
