No Weapon Formed: How To Overcome The Enemy

The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace. ~Exodus 14:14

I receive so many emails from good Christian people who are looking for God to help them through a difficult crisis in their life. They question… why they are going through the difficulties? and where is God through all of this? Unfortunately, following Christ each day, living a Godly life does NOT mean you are immune from the trials and tribulations of life. You have to understand that there is a very real enemy named satan, who is actively trying to disrupt the work of God. In addition, Jesus told us what satan’s goal is concerning YOU in John 10:10, to KILL STEAL, AND DESTROY.

These past two weeks have been particularly hectic for me at work. However, due to the hectic work schedule, I found myself trying to integrate my prayer life throughout my workday more than usual. As things got stressful, I tried to find ways to calm myself with prayer. It seemed the more I prayed, the more I was tested. The enemy came at me every way possible. The more he pressed, the more I pressed back. Let’s just say… he got tired of pressing.

What would you do if someone began to push against you, attempting to throw you off a position that is rightfully yours? How would you respond? Most people would lean into the weight and push back. That’s a posture of resistance. And as believers, we must know when it’s time to lean with all our might against evil. But how?

Prayer is the believer’s great privilege and powerful weapon against Satan and his plans. The apostle Peter wrote, “Resist him, steadfast in the faith” (1 Peter 5:9). James echoed this teaching:

“Submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:7-8).

I know sometimes you want to crawl up in a corner and Pray to God that your problems just go away. But, that’s not exactly how it works! Problems are meant to be defeated, We should not be defeated by our problems. If God took away every problem that we encountered, every time we prayed, We would never know how it feels to overcome them. You can’t have a victory without winning the battle, just as you can’t have a testimony without passing God’s test. Instead of praying for God to take your problems away, Pray for Him to give you strength to conquer them. Today, get in the mindset: “I will not be defeated… I may have a big problem, but MY GOD is bigger!  Ask God to protect you and fight your battles for you. I assure you, the Battle is already won because God never loses a battle!

  3. No weapons formed against me shall prosper. And every toung that rise up against me thou shall condemn for this is the heritage of the Lord and their righteousness is of the sayeth the Lord

  4. This is a word that comes at a time where the enemy has been attacking me the most. We aren’t of this world, when were in Christ although we are born into a sinful world. It’s hard to deal with people that are evil towards us for no reason. We know it’s the work of the enemy. I’m going to continue to keep praying, to come against the enemy. Amen

  5. oh yea the enemy is out there to stop us from doing GODS WORK…they will try and try looking for an opportune time….but pray without sizing ,draw nearer to GOD he will draw nearer to you ….

  6. This is so true. It always puzzles me how believers wonder why they are going through struggles and strife. Believers go through more than non-believers. That’s our burden to follow Christ.

  9. My name is Mrs. sodiq ,and
    I’m happily married with a lovely husband and
    three children.I had a very big problem with my
    husband few months ago,to the extent that he
    even packed his things away from our house. He
    left I and and my kids for almost 5 months,and i
    tried all my possible best and effort to bring him
    back.l discussed it with a very good friend of
    mine,and she gave me an advice concerning a
    spell caster, that she is the only one that can
    handle my situations and problem,that she’s
    always ready and able to do anything related to
    spell casting and helping of the needy, please
    every one i would like you all to contact her
    via her email address,which is as
    follows.””. I
    never believed in spell casting,but My friend
    convinced me and i had no choice than to follow
    my friend advice,because i never dreamed of
    loosing my lovely Husband. And i contacted her
    with her email address,and i discussed with her
    all my problems and worries and so
    surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my husband
    back a day after. I didn’t believed Her, until
    when i got home,the next day,my husband
    called me to inform me that he is coming back
    home…..So Amazing!! That’s how i got my husband back
    through spell casting and our relationship was
    stronger than ever. One of the price i was asked
    to pay was to tell it to the people around me that
    problems like this,can always be solved by
    shelly. So! my advice to you out there is to visit
    this same E-mail address,and tell her your
    problems too,if you are in any condition related
    to love issue or getting your ex back or reshaping your life any
    problem at all, please Contact her and have a
    life. you can contact her via email
