Spiritual Warfare and Perseverance
– Developing inner strength for the challenges of life

From the very moment we are born into this world we are dealing with the need for resilience, perseverance and skill in spiritual warfare, so this is not so much a step or phase as a life long process. During these times we learn that we are caught in the middle of  a constant conflict between the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness. We learn who our true enemy is and that he is defeated and that victory belongs to those who serve the King of kings. We also discover that we must stand strong in faith and learn to use such spiritual weapons as God gives for each battle we must endure. We also become able by faith to put away fear and rather learn to walk in the fear of God, Who brings us to victory by casting out our fears by perfect love. We therefore become confident in the face of evil and opposition, knowing that  “we are more than conquerers through Christ who loved us (Rom. 8:37).”
