Warfare

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds (2 Corinthians 10:4). I was thinking of that scripture and started contemplating “warfare.” Oftentimes we think of a full frontal attack when we hear war. We may imagine illness, financial troubles, death of a loved one or many other scenarios. Yet I think that the warfare is often more subtle, crafty, and insipid. Strong holds are a wall of thoughts. If our weapons were meant to destroy the physical attacks around us, why were they (weapons) designed to destroy thoughts? Perhaps it’s not the attack itself, but how the attack affects our thinking. If we enter into warfare and lose a battle, do we begin to think differently about God? Any doubt will delay the manifestation of our promises from God, and if you were the enemy wouldn’t you be trying to change our thinking about God? The warfare is battled in our mind.
