Ephesians 6: 12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
I thought it strange to see this menacing figure staring at me as I waited for my sushi take-out. I am not sure why he was there or what the restaurant owners were thinking in their choice of decor! He was quite large! I would think they would want their establishment to be a welcoming place!
I snapped his picture because he made me think about the fact that I am a warrior too. I do not think I look quite so threatening, but then it is not about looks. In fact, the verse for today talks about our war not having anything to do with flesh and blood. Our war takes place in the unseen spiritual realm.
God’s choice of me as one of His warriors is ludicrous! My courage is so nonexistent that I need to enlist my husband in combat with a spider! There is nothing in me to inspire fear. However, the devil will flee from me according to James 4:7. When I am subject to my Commander-in-Chief, He gives me the ability to resist the temptations of the enemy.
I am well-equipped in this battle so I have no reason to fear! God has outfitted me with all the armor I need. I can be strong in Him and the power of His might. Not only that, I already know the outcome of this war. I am on the winning side! “If God be for us who can be against us?” Romans 8:31 The answer is, no one.
Unlikely warrior that I am, I can be confident because of the One who goes before me. Victory is mine!
