Are you using the right weapons to fight in a spiritual warfare? The news is inundated with stories of the physical weapons of war and of bad people doing bad things individually or en masse with other weapons.
But how do you fight evil? A gun can’t blow a hole through factions, dissentions, impurity, bribery, lies and corruption! You can blow a hole through the people who practice such things, but that only stops the evil person…not the evil. Only the power of God through prayer can do that.
We must remember there is nothing stronger than the shield of prayer. It may be invisible but never doubt that it is invincible. That doesn’t mean that any of us get a free ride; it just means there is power when all else is powerless.
An excellent example is from the Cold War days. Senator Sam Nunn famously said that the Cold War had ended not in a nuclear inferno, but in a blaze of candles in the churches of Eastern Europe. The many candlelight processions of praying people in East Germany never made the front pages of our newspapers, but the end result of their prayers surely did…the Berlin Wall came crumbling down. All of the East German police and soldiers were powerless as the Wall fell without a shot being fired!
Use the right weapon in order to win the fight and never underestimate the power of prayer! Endure the fire…it's producing pure gold!
