Ephesians 6:10-12(NIV) says; "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."
The scripture above is talking about spiritual warfare and how we can overcome the devil in this warfare (verse 13-17).
In overcoming the powers of darkness spiritual warfare;
We depend upon the power of God and not our own power.
We rebuke in the name of Jesus and not with our name.
We wage war with the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
Praying Always to God as verse 18 says", And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people".
Therefore total dependence on God is the key to overcoming spiritual warfare.
Dear Father, we thank you for your word. We pray that you fill us with your spirit to pray always and be totally submissive to your word. We pray that every warfare in our life is defeated, not by our might nor by our power but by the spirit of the most high God in Jesus name! Amen!
