We’ve all seen the television advertisements how you can join the Army and be an Army of one.  And that’s fine, until you are trapped in the middle of enemy fire out in a deserted place all alone, about to run out of ammo.  Then what are you going to do?
    It won’t take long to get to the point here.  If you are a child of God, then you are indeed an Army of One.  The Bible says in Deuteronomy 32:30-31
 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?  For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.
    You see, being a child of God exceeding multiplies your realm of influence.  You are no longer fighting your enemy on your own strength.  When you are fighting your battles on your own strength, although you may be pretty strong, you’re only one person, and sooner or later your enemy will outnumber you and wear you out and defeat you.  Not so as a child of God, that is, if you are putting the advantage you possess to use.  You can be the strongest, best armed soldier in God’s Army and still be easily defeated if you don’t use your weapons of warfare.
    Every soldier in an army is equipped for battle, they are trained for battle, given uniforms, guns, ammo, and things necessary for their survival, but whether they use it or not will help determine if they will survive the battle.  If they don’t put to use what is issued to them, their chances are not real good.  And even the use of every skill and supply does not eliminate the possibility of a stray bullet ending their life.  But there is a better way for the child of God.
    The Bible does not promise we will never see battle.  Indeed, it says we WILL face tribulation.  But the Lord Jesus said, These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.  In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.   Now, consider this: as a child of God, the Spirit of God dwells in you.  And where the Spirit of God is, there is no devil that can defeat you, for GOD is Almighty, and the devil is just a created spirit being. The devil is NOT on equal footing with God, as some believe, and equal and opposite force.  Yes, the devil is an opposite force to God, but he certainly is subject to God in every arena.  The devil is not a threat to God. Nor is he a threat to any of God’s children who know who they are in Christ Jesus, their authority, and are willing to stay in submission to God so as to be able to wield that authority.  As a child of God, you are indeed an Army of ONE, namely of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.
    As a child of God, submitted to His authority, you may be surrounded by the enemy at any given moment, but you are not alone, nor will your “ammo supply” ever run short.  You are not in danger of defeat, for the Lord cannot be defeated, and He is in you.  The devil can roar and rage and threaten you, but you can let the air out of his balloon with a single word and bring him down to size. 
    It is written in 1 John 4:4, Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.   Look at that verse again.  It says GREATER is he that is in you, that is the Holy Spirit, and he that is in the world is the lessor, that’s the devil.  You have nothing to fear from the devil as a child of God.  Though the devil will try to stir up fear inside of you, the fact is, he is already defeated by Christ Jesus.  And no matter how much the devil would like you to believe that he is the greater one, the truth remains that God is the Greater One, and the devil is just a liar.
    You and God make an undefeatable team.  Actually, God is already undefeatable, you’re just along for the ride, but if you’re riding in God Almighty’s chariot, that makes you untouchable too.  Remember that the next time you’re in battle.  You have the Almighty inside, and you have all of heaven backing you.  But, the fact still remains, you can’t sit there and expect God to do everything for you.  A soldier with a loaded gun is only a threat to the enemy if he uses it.  If you’re not staying in fellowship with God and using what He gives you, then how can you expect to live in victory?  Draw close to God today, be strong in His might, and be an Army of One!  As His child, you are more than God needs to send to defeat anything the devil comes up with, you’re overkill, but remember, God always overdoes everything.  He isn’t the God of just enough, He’s the God of WAY MORE THAN ENOUGH.  With the Holy Spirit inside of you, you’re MORE THAN EQUAL to any threat from Satan.  You are an Army of ONE!
