Our Warfare is Spiritual

by Kim Boleyn on June 19, 2012

Okay, so Uncle Charlie is being a pain in the tuckus.  He does everything to make you angry, disagrees just because, and is altogether unpleasant.  Aunt Martha is always trying to run your life saying, you should do this and you should do that!  What is even worse is that Uncle Charlie and Aunt Martha are married and give you a double portion of nasty.  (Ugh!!)

You go to congregation and there is the person who is always spouting off scripture to tell you how to better run your life.  They get offended with you when you don’t listen and start to gossip about you to everyone else.  (Double ugh!!!!!)

Okay, we have all been through stuff with people who come at us from every side and put the pressure on us to conform our lives to their way thinking.  After awhile, you get VERY angry and start to do the same things toward them that they are doing to you!  (Oh yeah, I forgot, your way is better, right?  Wrong!)  So, what do we do?

Ephesians 6:12 says - For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,  but against the rulers, against the authorities,  against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Okay, that being said, what does that look like and what do we do?  In most cases with the person, nothing.  That’s right, I said nothing!  (Oh, I can hear the groans already.)  What you do is pray.  Not from a victim’s standpoint, but a standpoint of, being fully armored, going out to do warfare.  We really don’t fight against Uncle Charlie and Aunt Martha, we fight against the spirits that are ruling over them.  There may be a time when God has you say something to them in LOVE (I said LOVE).  But, most of the time, go into prayer and start kicking some devil butt!

We have the authority because Yeshua gave it to us.  We don’t have to be a victim of the circumstances.  Remember, we are more than conquerors!
