Child, there are 3 kinds of struggles you encounter daily. The first is the conflict between your inner man and your outer man. It is a continuous frustrating back and forth wrestling because you live in the contradiction of sin and holiness. The second is the struggle, not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers and powers of this dark world, the principalities, namely the devil and his demons. And thirdly is the struggle with God himself. Jacob wrestled all night. He wanted a blessing. He desired a blessing. He wrestled until morning to get it.
Become versed in the art of the struggle. Correctly handle the Word of God. We fight not with weapons of this world, but the weapons we fight with tear down strongholds. The weapons we fight with are weapons of faith. Unseen and yet most majestically strong. Arm yourself, soldier! Put on the full armor of God and take your stand against the devil’s schemes. Put on the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the helmet of salvation, feet fitted with the readiness of the gospel of peace, and take up the shield of faith and the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. You are well armed and well equipped in the power of the Holy Spirit. Now stand firm! Do not succumb to a spirit of fear, but be bold and stouthearted in the Lord, and remember God’s promise that no weapon formed against you will prosper. He is your warrior King and He fights for you.
