The Kingdom of God is not like any other Kingdom. Many say it’s the “upside down” Kingdom, but it’s actually the way things were intended to be before the apple was eaten.
2 Corinthians 10:4 best describes the weapons of the Kingdom of God, “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” We see here that the weapons that God has given us have two unique attributes – “divine power” and the ability to “demolish strongholds”. They are not like the weapons of this world!
Laughter Is A Weapon
Psalm 2:4 says, “The One enthroned in Heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.” The Lord is demonstrating the use of one of His Kingdom weapons as He looks down on the nations.
Jesus didn’t come to earth as a Warrior King. He came as a baby. This in and of itself reveals that His Kingdom is not of this world. As mentioned above, the weapons of His Kingdom have divine power and can demolish strongholds. Thus, things like laughter, peace, patience and joy become weapons full of divine power that have the ability to demolish strongholds.
Are you facing any “strongholds” in your life? Strongholds are simply places in our lives where we feel stuck. We can’t stop doing that thing or start doing something we’d like to be doing. What if you began to wield the Kingdom weapon over that are of your life? Hebrews 11:1 teaches us that faith is “being sure of what we hoped for” and “certain of what we do not see.”
What if, by faith, we used laughter to begin tearing down the strongholds in our lives. How about doing the same in the lives of those around us! Peter, by faith, stepped out of the boat and walked on water.
What would happen if you and I stepped out of the proverbial boat? How would life look if we began to intentionally use the weapons of the Kingdom?!
