It is good and necessary to know that:
“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”
But first we must recognize that we are in an ongoing spiritual battle and it is required that we be prepared and ready for war on a daily basis, with the full armor of God, although God gives us rest. A neutral position can not be taken nor will it protect us. There is no where to run or hide except into the Presence of God who commands our allegiance and to His will.
The adversary, the evil one, who hates all that God loves and opposes all who try to do His will, has his schemes and power, and he comes among us. He waits and watches for an opportune time. He watches and waits to strike because he is against us. But we are not afraid of him, because we know where our victory lies.
It lies upon the cross. It lies upon the table. It sits upon the throne victorious, even on earth as it is in heaven, and the One who sits upon the throne in heaven, victorious over the adversary laughs, and we have His confidence and victory. He is for us and not against us. He is with us and in us to do God’s will and overcome the adversary: by the Blood of the Lamb, by the Word of our testimony, by the power of the Holy Spirit and the authority of Jesus’ name. He has called us and sent us into the world just as His Father sent Him.
Therefore, let us worship and glorify Him together in His victory! Amen.
