Do you have a battle strategy that includes prayer?

"Wake up, sing up, preach up, pray up, pay up, stay up, and never give up, or let up, or back up, or shut up until the cause of Christ in this church and the world is built up!"

Christianity was never meant to be passive, indifferent, or milk-toast.  

Please recognized that a temptation to accept the wrong, to remain quiet when others are being hurt or killed, the temptation to do nothing about what’s truly destructive in relation others ..is a serious sin with fall-out that reaches your address so to speak. 

You and me, we were made in the image of God with great value and real love is ready to protect and does so. This temptation is simply a call to spiritual battle.. don’t mean physically against people. That’s why we need to pray and have a biblical battle strategy. 

“For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.”  2 Corinthians 10:4 
“...so that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 3:10 
“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11 
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12 

Fighting a spiritual battle might seem daunting at times for us as Christians, but God indeed wants to encourage us in every way possible through His Word. He gives us the weapons for our warfare, and the grace  that we need to win. Ask for His wisdom. If we don’t stand up and fight in the  right way for what’s right and good, then sooner or later it won’t be just us alone that are hurt or destroyed by that inferior decision. 

“For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.” Colossians 1:16 
“He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.” Colossians 2:15 
“This charge I entrust to you, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies previously made about you, that by them you may wage the good warfare…” I Timothy 1:18 

You can do this. You can win with Christ livin’ big on the inside cuz He is a Victor among those He’s given victory to.
