Though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. 2 Corinthians 10:3-6
Listen, there is a war going on! At any given moment, a full-fledged battle is ensuing in our minds. There’s no need to gear up with natural weaponry or make sure you are in physical shape to fight. Nor do we need to hurl insults in a mud slinging combat, because we don’t wage war the same way the world does. This is not a natural fight! It’s a spiritual fight that must be fought with spiritual weapons. Take heart! We have a whole arsenal of weapons that are divinely powerful. Prayer, praise, worship, the Word of God, and many other spiritual weapons are at our disposal. These weapons help us destroy, demolish, tear down, and over throw every thing that presents itself against God. Wrong thoughts, warped philosophies, and vain imaginations are destroyed when we obediently employ our spiritual weapons. We capture wayward, fearful, and anxious thoughts, and make those thoughts obedient to Christ. The mind is indeed a battlefield, but we have just what we need to win the war. Don’t sit idly by, pick up your weapons and fight! Fight friends, fight.
