Natural wars require the need for natural weapons and proper use of them in order to
defeat your enemy. Spiritual wars or spiritual battles will require spiritual weapons
the proper use of them to defeat your enemy.
Spiritual Warfare is real. The victory is guaranteed. God will always lead us to triumph as we listen to His Word, and follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
The scripture states, Now thanks be unto God, which always causes us to triumph in
Christ, and make manifest the savor of his knowledge by us in every place. II Corinthians 2:14
The fact that God causes us to triumph means there is something to triumph over. The triumph comes after hard fighting and one contenders emerges victorious. You must know that you are in a war.
The devil want to keep people blinded to the truth from and identifying him as your enemy. If you are born again, God is your Heavenly Father and the devil is your enemy.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. I Peter 5:8
Howbeit when He the Spirit of Truth come, he will guide us into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself ; but whatsoever He hear, that shall He speak: and He will you things to come. John 16:13 (KJV).
You do not have to feel helpless or hopeless. Neither do you have to watch and allow
devil to run havoc with your life, marriage, family, business, church, or community.
There are times when you petition God for specific needs to be met which is called prayer of petition. Another category is called Devotional Prayer. I like to call that Relationship Building Prayer.
There is Intercessory Prayer which focus on praying for others. Intercessory Prayer is spiritual warfare. The enemy will try to hold onto those whom he deceives with everything within him. He will not give up easily, but he has no choice if you decide have the determination to pay or pray the price for your loved ones salvation, healing, deliverance, breakthrough, or miracle.
The Apostle Paul speaks like a parent who is pleading for a child/children who is not
walking with the Lord. Paul speaks of the type of prayer he must do for their growth
and maturity to take place in their life.
My little children, of whom I travail in birth again that Christ be formed in you. The
word “travail” means to toil, to extend much strength to the point of fatigue; to give
The message translation states: Do you know how I feel right now, and will feel unto
Christ’s life become visible in your lives? Like a mother in pain of child birth.
God has given us the Holy Spirit and weapons in His Word to help us effectively
engage in spiritual warfare.
Likewise the Spirit also helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what we
should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us
with groanings which cannot be uttered. Romans 8:26
The enemy cannot win when it comes to the Holy Spirit helping us intercede.
Although you may be in a spiritual battle for your loved ones- I declare your
victory! It is always too soon to quit. Outlast your adversary. Refuse to give up.
The price of victory is worth it for your loved ones. We already have the victory!
