Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
The warfare believers must fight is spiritual, personal, intense, and continual. It calls for courage determination and prayer, and therefore believers must stand in God’s strength and use the amour He has provided. To understand the battle of spiritual warfare, we need to begin with acknowledging that we are in a war. Battles involve combat between two persons, between factions, between armies and they, consist of any type of “extended contest, struggle, or controversy” (Webster-Merriam). As Christians, we are in a spiritual battle of some sort on a daily basis. In warfare, battles are fought on different fronts, for different reasons, and with varying degrees of intensity. The same is true in spiritual warfare. Our spiritual battles and warfare are real, even though we cannot physically see the attacker, we can educate ourselves on how the battles are fought and how they impact our lives on a daily basis. In the spiritual realm, there is a battle going on regardless of our opinion. We are either victors or victims. Jesus has come and conquered. The war is already won in the heavens. We just have to walk it out in confidence.
