“Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”(Ephesians 6:12)
It is hard to remember the above verse when you are going through battles with people. It is the truth. Believers if not abiding in Christ Jesus and unbelievers under the enemy’s influence are at times coworkers with evil. Their minds are blinded. They have been taken captive to do the enemy’s will. Addictions, gossip, evil plans, and habitual strongholds are devices being used.
What is one to do? Fight! How?
“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. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”(2 Corinthians 10:3-5)
Christians living for God have the weapons of prayer, praise, giving, fasting, and living in obedience to God’s Holy Bible.
Challenge: Live by faith and practice the above disciplines. “Everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”(1 John 5:4)
