God’s Hope for Your Heart from 2 Corinthians 10
GOD’S WEAPONS WILL MAKE YOU VICTORIOUS
For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:4)
If you feel like you’re in a fight, it’s because you are.
Trials and temptation, disease and discouragement, conflict with others and conflict within ourselves; this is the fight of life.
The Bible tells us the struggle is not against the particular circumstances that bring us down, but against our enemy Satan, the one who brings these things against us. The physical fight is just an echo of the spiritual war going on underneath.
But in this war, we have the upper hand!
We know the strategies of the enemy and we can see when he’s moving. We have powerful defenses against his devices: the armor of God.
Not only that, but we have been given the gift of superior firepower. The Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit are our perfect arsenal for this persistent warfare! These weapons are effective, empowering, and ever-present for the children of God.
Do not let your enemy dupe you into believing that you are a helpless victim. If you’re in Christ, you are a heavenly victor!
Whatever level of spiritual warfare you’re facing right now, be strengthened in the fight as you receive the hope of this glorious truth: God’s weapons will make you victorious!
