It is the Christian concept of fighting against the work of preternatural evil forces. It is based on the biblical belief in evil spirits said to intervene in human affairs in various ways.
When we decide to accept Jesus in our hearts and make Him our personal Lord and Savior we have just made ourselves Enemy Number 1 and the prime target for the Devil. Just think back when you first got saved and started following the Lord for a lot of us the first couple of weeks and even months were like walking through the rose bushes. It seemed like everywhere you turned a blessing was chasing you down. Then it happened. It felt like you were so distant from God your prayers weren’t being answered or so you thought, and everything that could possibly go wrong went wrong. That my friends is what you call Spiritual Warfare.
Stick with me for a second as I paint this picture. If you look back to 2nd Corinthians 4:4 it says “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who do not see” God is basically calling Satan the god of this world; of earthly pleasures. Remember, the Enemy cannot read your mind; he can only use what comes out of your mouth and the natural circumstances that surround you to try to deter you from the path that God has put you on. God is a Spirit Being and the Enemy is too and they both sit outside of time. So the Enemy can see when God is about to line you up and put a blessing for your obedience in following Him. The Enemy is always trying to place a spiritual attack on you; distract you with earthly pleasures or problems in the natural realm to try and take you off the path that God has you on and block you from the blessings God has for you. But as true believers, we have to know that our battle is not in the natural world but in the spiritual realm. Everything that is manifested in the natural first has to be manifest in the spiritual realm. It stands to reason if the Enemy can attack us and beat us in the spiritual realm, then we have already lost the battle in the natural realm. We have to learn to equip ourselves with spiritual weapons and learn to fight in the spirit in order to have victories in the natural. One of the first weapons that you need in the spiritual is knowledge. You have to KNOW that you have an enemy that hates everything about your pure existence and would love nothing more than to take you out. Because the biggest trick the Devil played on anybody is to make people think he does not exist.
The second weapon that you need is prayer. Prayer is the key that unlocks the ammunition room in Heaven. When you pray, and ask for God’s protection over your family, your business, your Church, and everything you are involved with, you give God the spiritual right to work on your behalf.
And the third and final tool you need is trust. You have to truly trust God and know that he would never leave you or forsake you and that all things work together for good. Understand that we are like precious gold to God. When gold is put in the fire the effect is that it becomes fluid. and the flames burn off all the impurities increasing the purity of the gold and with that, its value..
So when God allows us to walk through the fire he does it in order to refine us, reshape us and make us pure. What the Enemy thinks he is doing by attacking us, God is using to shape our character and build our integrity, molding us into the mighty men and women of God we are called to be. So just remember, when you are facing battles you cannot see in the spiritual realm, you have God fighting on your behalf. Be strong in the knowledge that he is with you. Pray so that you can unleash the ammunition of His protection, and truly trust that he has your best interest at heart. Be the Change You Cannot See.
