Elaine Tavolacci: "Scars to Swords: Turning Your Wounds into Weapons"

Elaine Tavolacci, Staten Island, NY
Jun 23, 2024

You Are a Warrior!

Some of you are still recovering from the tests and trials of the last season. You've let go of dreams, because the torment that you've recently endured has been overwhelming. You need to reignite the fire that you once had by allowing Holy Spirit to do a deep healing and cleansing on the inside of you.

A deep wound needs to be cleaned out to prevent infection or recurrence. Some of you have been in a hostile environment and the oppression has weighed you down. You need to release all of that to Jesus. Some of you have been through physical issues and you have had to continue to stand on God's word, " His stripes, [I am] healed" (see Isaiah 53:5).

The Lord wants to resurrect those dreams that died "unborn," turn your scars into swords, and your wounds into weapons! He's called you a warrior, and to not to back down in a spiritual battle. When you are a warrior, your trauma becomes your testimony, and you go from being a victim to a victor! It's time to unleash your inner warrior! We must be relentless against the enemy.

Are You the One He Is Looking For?

In the book of Nehemiah, chapter 4, the laborers who built the wall worked on the construction with one hand, and held a weapon in their other hand. Every one of them had a sword, girded at their side at all times, as they built the wall (see Nehemiah 4:18). The book of Ephesians says that we have the full armor of God, and the Sword of the Spirit (the Word of God) is part of our armor (see Ephesians 6:17). The Lord is looking for men and women who are tenacious in faith and ready to change the world! (Photo via Pexels)

Jesus is looking for those who are strong and very courageous: they are not mere men and women, but they carry the Spirit of God on the inside of them! Jesus is searching for warriors and giving them blueprints and battle plans. They understand that they are not fighting against flesh and blood, and they recognize that they are in a spiritual battle. They discern the spiritual atmosphere around them at all times.

Jesus is increasing the anointing on our lives, because tougher times require a greater anointing. Big battles require strong warriors. When you know your authority, you will defeat them every time!

God Is Teaching Your Hands to Make War

The Lord says, "I am the God that brought you out of Egypt. And it is I who arms you with strength and makes your way perfect. I make your feet like the feet of deer and set you on the high places. I will teach your hands to make war, so that your arms can bend a bow of bronze. I am bringing restoration and healing to the lives of My people. I am igniting them, once again, to become 'flames of fire' to this generation.

"The embers which have been left smoldering will burn hot once again in their lives, and they will come forth and be ablaze with My glory. I am rekindling the fires of those in the fivefold ministry and releasing them back into position. I will raise them up and teach them to war when the enemy comes in like a flood. Their families and ministries will be ignited once again.

"That which has been lost will be restored. That which has been stolen will be redeemed. That which has died will be resurrected. All that has been charred, seared, and stagnant will once again come alive as My fire ignites a new passion in [their lives]. I am looking for people to be releasers of My glory as I send My fire across this nation and around the world. (Photo via Unsplash)

"A fresh anointing will be imparted and released as I send revival to this dry and thirsty land. Receive the fresh impartation of My fire. Take the limits off of Me, and allow Me to impart a passion inside of you, and you will once again experience My glory in a magnificent way. As you remove any debris and anything that is hindering you, I will set you ablaze with My glory once again.

"Don't resist the changes. They are needed [in order for you] to come into the fullness of what I have for you. Do not fear the days ahead, but know that I will release My glory in a magnitude which no devil or human [can] stop!" says the Lord.

"It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places. He teaches my hands to make war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great. You enlarged my path under me, so my feet did not slip." (Psalm 18:32–36)

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." (Psalm 147:3)

"...But His word was in my heart like a burning fire shut up in my bones; I was weary of holding it back, and I could not." (Jeremiah 20:9)
