Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
When you are in a spiritual warfare, you must be a fighter because the above scripture tells us that we are challenged against the evil rulers of darkness. Just as in the military you cannot underestimate the enemy. In John 10:10, it states the thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy; but Jesus says I come that you may have life and have it abundantly.
Jesus has already told us that He came to give us life. Therefore, during the spiritual warfare, have a sovereign attitude. A sovereign attitude is submitting to God (James 4:7) and allowing God to handle the problem for us. Often times we do not submit to God, but submit to our emotions and try to handle the battle by ourselves. However, just as the Lord told Jehoshaphat, be not afraid, but the battle is the Lord (2 Chronicles 20).
I surrender my battles to You. I cannot handle them on my own. I trust You! God, forgive me for trying to fight battles in my own way. I will have a sovereign attitude by standing still and seeing Your salvation.
In Jesus Name,
