The king of Syria was saying, “Don’t get sidetracked by other people. Focus on the king so we can win.” The same is true for us. Fighting against flesh and blood distracts us. We battle against spiritual wickedness in high places. As the saying goes, “don’t major in the minor.” Distractions come to move us away from the actual targets and prevent us from warring effectively.

We pray for the Lord to help us be quick to recognize the hindrances and deal with them in Jesus’ name. Our prayer of authority against the unseen is powerful. Part of our daily prayers should be to command whatever is not of God to go, and for the Holy Spirit to lead us into specific instructions. The battle is the Lord’s and our prayers avail much.

We should focus on the spiritual realm and not on what we see in the natural. The spiritual realm is our reality. Our emotions or our circumstances may try to blind us as we pray, but the Lord clears the way and reveals realities. If we major in Christ, we can trust He will handle the minors and empower us to walk in the victory we have in Him, from glory to glory!  

1 Kings 22:31 “Now the king of Syria had commanded the thirty-two captains of his chariots, saying, “Fight with no one small or great, but only with the king of Israel.”
