Spiritual Battles

“…for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses.”
– 2 Corinthians 10:4

In every life there is a Jericho. You know what that is? It is that thing that would block you from becoming all that God wants you to be. Whether it is a besetting sin, a habit, or an attitude, our Jericho will block our way to the full blessing of God. As long as we try to scale the walls and knock them down using our own resources, we will fail. We cannot win spiritual battles with weapons we have borrowed from the world’s arsenals. Instead, recognize how impossible it is to handle the situation on our own. Then, just be patient, be quiet, and soon – at God’s command – you will be able to shout the shout of faith that will bring the wall crashing down.

Think about a battle you’ve been trying to win by yourself. Tell God about it and thank Him, in advance, for the victory He will give in His time, and in His way.
