POWER: Part Four
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NIV
When we feel like we are losing in this world, we must remember it is not our fight. The battle is the Lord's. Our victory has already been won through Jesus Christ. Our job is to trust in the power of God as we love Him and each other. We are given divine power to do this because sometimes life does come against us causing us to fear and fall. Through belief in God's Word — the sword of the Spirit — and with sound minds, we realize that God will do everything else. That's where our power comes from! For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV
