Blessed be The Lord my strength who teaches my hand to war and my fingers to fight. Psalm 144:1.
Dear believer, there is a raging spiritual battle which has been going on for eons. We are in mortal combat with an invisible, formidable and relentless anemy who is eternally committed to our destruction. This enemy doesn’t play nice or fair. He is dark and wicked. The bad news is that this battle is not going away any time soon. However the good news is that if you will learn to fight, you will triumph over this enemy and come out victorious in any and every battle.
Having a ‘quiet, non-confrontational’ personality does not exclude you from this battle. Your being a pacifist is detrimental to your very existence. Hiding your head in the ground can get you killed. The only way to survive and come out triumphant is to learn to fight. You are not precluded from the battles of life because ‘you don’t like to fight.’ That is absolute nonsense. Satan will not leave you alone because you don’t like spiritual warfare. Being in denial and evasive will not suddenly change life to work differently for you. To be victorious in life, we must learn to fight. It is The Lord who teaches us to war and our fingers to do battle. Keeping quiet when the enemy is attacking and making a mess of your life, finances, business, ministry and family is foolish. The victory is in the hands of those who will learn to confront and wage war against the enemy of our soul. You either fight and win or keep quiet and watch the enemy systematically destroy your life. Victory is with those who learn to do strategic battle in the place of prayer. Victory is with those who employ every known spiritual weapon in God’s arsenal and contend for the fulfilment of their God given assignment. Victory is in the hands of those who will learn to fight and win.
