A Single Shot

Today in worship I was taken into a vision. I looked down and saw myself dressed in a military uniform complete with a weapons holster. I knew I was in the army of God and was in position to do battle against a demonic stronghold in a region.

When it was time to draw a weapon I looked down at my arsenal and noticed there was a particular gun that had not been used in some time and appeared dusty. It was the smallest and most unimpressive to look out of all the weapons I had. The name of the gun was engraved of the handle and it read Speaking In Tongues.

As soon as I read the name I felt compelled to use the gun and quickly drew it from my holster, lined up against the enemy and fired a shot. Upon impact, the force and influence of the shot totally obliterated the stronghold and moved out from the centre of it like a nuclear bomb and wiped out the enemy.

I was astounded that such a massive impact and victory had come from what seemed an insignificant and often unused weapon with only a single shot. I heard the Father say, “I am making my army aware of what they already posses. I am causing my church to embrace the gift of tongues and the power of praying the will of God through this gift of the Spirit.”

I sense that as people begin to frequently use the gift of tongues and pray intentionally in the spirit, it is going to produce great confidence and battles won with such ease – a single shot! Not only will the victory bring much joy but edification to the body of Christ and the army of the Living God. (1 Corinthians 14:4).

As the church recognises that it has already been given the arsenal for victory it will shift people and indeed nations into ‘suddenly victory’ moments.
‘For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.’ 2 Corinthians 10:3-4.
