3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. - 2 Corinthians 10: 3-4
Everyday we face battles. We are tempted by the world, Satan, and our sinful desires. Trouble and opposition is constantly in our face. Satan wants us to fail, but God wants us to succeed.
If we are going to have victory in our life we have to learn to fight our battles the right way. The Bible says in 2 Cor 10 that we do not use the weapons that the world uses but we fight our daily battles with spiritual weapons. What are our spiritual weapons? They are prayer, faith, love, God's Word, and the Holy Spirit.
It is important that we take the time to pray for our personal needs and others, that we have a strong faith in God, we continue to love others even though they hate us or do wrong against us, we study God's Word, and let the Holy Spirit refresh us. Exercising our spiritual weapons will allow us to win our battles in this world!
When we fight like the world - this means we fight by conflict, arguments, intelligence, violence, cursing, or getting even we will not win because those are weapons of the flesh. But we will win when we use our spiritual weapons like prayer, faith, hope, love, God's Word, and the Holy Spirit.
When we do this, slowly but surely you will see the victories in your life and your battles won. If you want to see victory in your life why not start now by choosing to fight the right way?
