We do not war against flesh and blood, and the weapons of our warfare are not carnal; they are mighty through God. These weapons are powerful because they are God’s. It’s His word and His spirit that defines how the battles are to be fought. In His name we conquer opposition.
When we use our weapons and they don’t seem to be working, the enemy brings thoughts of despair and his lies about our future become louder. We keep our weapons sharpened as we pray in the Spirit. We keep plowing, trusting that eventually every high thing in opposition to God’s will has to come down. It’s difficult to pray as fervently for a breakthrough after years of pressing through, and often when a high tower is about to fall, the enemy tries to get us to quit. By God’s grace, we never grow weary in well doing and we can rest assured in due time we will reap. As we wage our good fight of faith, we are also being prepared to conquer even greater giants.
What is brought low is not always obvious. Our own righteousness, good works and what we think makes us safe—are destroyed by the Spirit of God through the ministry of The Word. Fleshy wisdom is demolished and divine wisdom is revealed. Whether we see it or not we can trust the results of our warfare. God is our fortress and as we abide and hide in Him we rest in our victory, from glory to glory.
2 Corinthians 10:4-6 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.
