This riveting short film is called "Spiritual Authority."This short film clearly depicts the magnificent beauty of God's amazing grace and the importance of putting on God's whole armour as instructed in Ephesians 6-10-20.It is filled with emotional scenes which is very relatable to young persons particularly young women.
This is practically a true testimony of my life as a dynamic Christian woman who aspire to share my life story to help other as they struggle through this very serious but important aspect of their Christian walk.I have been through alot of heartbreaks but I have gained greater appreciation for my most precious book ,my Holy Bible.It is definitely the Sword of the Spirit because I literally can't go anywhere without it. I am an optimistic young woman who always looks for the good in every situation.
This about a young Christian woman who is on the verge of mental breakdown.She is literally drowning in her own tears . She had her final draw when COVID 19 t the world and had everyone in great panic and anxiety.It is in these perilous times she questions her faith and doubts her own self identity in Christ .She lost her fiance in a very tragic vehicle accident wn her previous daughter was only one year.She was devastated and had been searching for God to explained why would he let that happen to her .She is terrified because all her friends make a mockery of her relationship with God. Her friends have turned their back on her especially when she really needed them.
She feels so miserable wallowing in shame and self pity.With the last ounce of hope and faith she reaches out to God in desperation practically begging for his mercy.
As the loving Father God is He embraces her and expresses his everlasting love.He encourages her to see her own beauty from a spiritual standpoint .He motivates her to spend quality time in her Bible since it is the Sword of the Spirit.She is also told to exercise her faith beyond het human comprehension .Additionally she was encouraged to feed her soul with Spiritual food,the word of God.
He sternly informed her that she needs to seriously take up her Spiritual authorities as he outlined the relevant scriptures to inspire her to get up and start fresh again.This time looking at things through spiritual lens .Basically they had a very intimate conversations she immediately starts to apply every scripture like a bandage to her wounded parts.
She understands that with everything that is going
on in this chaotic world she serves a mighty God who is Alpha and Omega.
The Bible is her sword against the wiles. the enemy .She use it with pride and dignity.Her life then takes a turn for the best .She gets married ,graduate with honors from a prestigious university,buys her beautiful home and gave birth to another precious baby girl.It is true to say that when you stay in the presence of God you attain so much joy regardless of the storms you face .She is in such a healthy and happy place she reaches to God in a heartwarming letter.
It is quite plain and simple ,putting on the whole armour of God is literally the only answer to life's tornadoes.When you are an astute Christian there is absolutely no other way to approach this.Putting on the whole armour of God is literally decoding it with the Scriptures.My favorite is the Sword of the Spirit so staying steadfast in God's word and applying it daily to our lives is of paramount importance.
Take for instance the Shield of faith ,according to the Scriptures ,it is impossible to please God.
Also the Scripture says that faith without works is dead.When you know your identity in Christ nothing can shake you.It is when you are not secure in God's love that the enemy tries to play with your mind.When your mind luxuriate in God's word daily you become a very difficult target for the him ,that's when he uses external forces to intimidate you.He will use your very loving spouse to say the wrong thing at the wrong time and you will snap forgetting that you are a child of God .When these things happen, immediately repent,apply and meditate the specific Scripture so that you will mature and do better.
When you are spiritually alert and you place your laser focus attention on God you will be able to discern and act accordingly. By putting on the Spiritual whole armour of God we're honoring him with our obedience.In so doing he will lavish us with his prosperity, good health, strong family bonds and our children will be successful in whatever they do. Honestly being in an intimate relationship with your Heavenly Father is the best relationship you will ever have.
If you are struggling with anger he will find ways to trigger you.When you are solid in God's foundation you will use remedial scriptures to release your tension.The Bible is a book of instructions ,wisdom anr promises and most times we hear from God through his Holy words. Prayer and worship are the best ammunition to stop the enemy in his filthy tracks.I can do All things through Christ who strengthens me!!!!That's what the Sword of the Spirit says and I am honouring it with my dedication to Him.

Yvette: LORD why am I going through all this pain,my heart is broken,how much more can I take?
Hi lord this is Yvette and we need to talk,its urgent!
GOD:My child ,Don't you know that you are my most prized possession?
Don't you know that I love you with an everlasting love ?
Before I created you in your mothers womb, I knew you .You are so radiantly beautiful !
Don't you know that you are the daughter of the king?
Don't you know that are a new creation ?
Don't you know that you are so valuable in my sight?
Its time you take your spiritual authority!
Its time you nourish your soul with the sword of the Spirit.
My daughter its time to exercise your faith ,faith without work is dead!
It is written man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
My daughter wait upon me and I will renew your strength,you will mount up with wings as eagles ,you shall run and not be weary and you shall walk and not faint .
Behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Be sober ,be vigilant because your adversary ,the devil as a roaring lion walketh about seeking who he may devour. My daughter your children will be mighty in the land ,the generation of the upright will be blessed,wealth and riches shall be in your house and your righteousness endureth forever ,You will bring your husband good and not harm him ,I will give you vine yards and olive groves you did not plant and when you eat you are satisfied .
My daughter I want you to meditate on Ephesians 6:10-20,finally my brethren be strong in the lord and in the power of his might,put on the whole armor of God that he may be able to stand against the wilds of the devil,for we wrestle not against flesh and blood,but against principalities,against powers against the rulers of the darkness of this world ,against spiritual wickedness in high places,wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that he may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all to stand ,stand therefore having your loins girt about with truth and having on the breastplate of righteousness and you feet shored with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Above all taking the shield of faith,where with we shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked,and take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God .Praying always with all pray and supplication in the spirit and watching there unto with all perseverance and supplication for all sin. And for me the utterance may be given unto me that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel ,for which I am an ambassador in bonds and therein I may speak boldly as I ought to speak .
