This means war
"For 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. "
When you look at the troubles of the world, it's easy to ask why and wonder what God is doing about it. Why do conflicts persist? When you fight with your spouse or your boss or your kids or fear for the future, what's really going on?
It is not another man or woman that is the root of our problem or the real subject of our anger or our rage.
Rather we fight battles in the spiritual world. We must use spiritual weapons.
First we must be reconciled to God.
Then we must pray and use the unbeatable weapons at our disposal: God, His word and the Holy Spirit. These are mightier than our enemy and will be for evermore without fail.
