Scripture:

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.

Observation:

As Paul continues to defend his ministry against skeptical Corinthians he makes a powerful statement. He doesn’t fight his battles in the flesh though he is still in the flesh as a human. Instead he fights with divine power and with divine weapons.

Application:

A few things…

⁃ We need weapons of warfare because we are in the midst of warfare.
⁃ We don’t have to fight the war with our power.
⁃ We can fight and win the war with the weapons of warfare through the power of the Holy Spirit.

In my life there is constant conflict. I must remember that the conflict I face has a deeper level. Therefore I must face it and fight it with a deeper level of power.

Prayer:

God I need you to win the fight against the darkness I face. I don’t have to fight alone and with my own power.
