I am constantly being reminded that we are in a Spiritual War -- our fight is not with flesh and blood (people) but it is with the devil and his demons (imps) -- powers, principalities, spiritual host of wickedness in heavenly places, rulers of darkness, etc. Our weapons are not carnal (of the flesh) -- 3 of our most powerful spiritual weapons are praise, prayer & the Word of God and we must speak the powerful Word of God and do what it says so we can overcome the enemy...
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints (Ephesians 6:12-18)
The moment we make another person our enemy that is the moment we get off track and we are fighting in the flesh when we should be fighting in the spirit because this is a spiritual war and we must use spiritual weapons to defeat the enemy. Amen!
Our Spiritual Weapons are found in the power of Praise (A Shout), The Word (declaring and doing), & Prayer. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. (2 Corinthians 10:4-6)
