Winning Spiritual Battles

You and I are just about as effective as a crew of workers attempting to tear down a building with loud mouths, sticks, and stones when we try to break down our strongholds with carnal weapons like pure determination, secular psychology, and denial. God has handed up two sticks of dynamite with which to demolish our strongholds: His Word and prayer. What makes prayer so powerful? Prayer keeps us in constant communion with God, which is the goal of our entire believing lives. Without a doubt, prayerless lives are powerless lives, and prayerful lives are powerful lives; but, believe it or not, the ultimate goal of God has for us in not power but personal intimacy with Him. We will never win any spiritual battles without prayer.

What Are Your Weapons


What Are the Weapons of Our Warfare?

In Ephesians 6:10-18, Paul listed the whole armor of God. Only one piece of the armor is actually a weapon. The sword of the Spirit is clearly identified as the Word of God. 2 Corinthians 10:3 uses the plural, assuring us we have weapons for warfare. What would be the other primary weapon? I believe the other primary weapon of our warfare is stated right after the words identifying the sword of the Spirit as the Word of God in Ephesians 6:17. The next verse says “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions.”

I am utterly convinced that the two major weapons with divine power in our warfare are:
· The Word of God

· Spirit-empowered prayer

God has given us these two sticks of dynamite to demolish the enemy.
