    F-I-G-H-T the Spiritual Battle Part 4 “H”

    -

    To F-I-G-H-T the spiritual fight we need first and foremost Faith in Jesus Christ along with Intentional prayer and God’s living word.

    But we won’t get far without our next weapon:

    Holy Spirit Power.

    Let’s face it, trying harder doesn’t quite cut it, does it? Do you know why? Because trying harder means we’re fighting on our own and with our own strength.  With this mindset, our battle mantras often start with the letter “I.”

    The good news is that God never intended for you to fight the spiritual fight alone. That’s why Jesus promised that he would “ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever.” (John 14:16)  It’s with this Helper, the Holy Spirit, that we have the power to win the fight. Acts 1:8 says that “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you.”

    When we begin to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit to win the fight— our hearts and minds begin to change from self-centered to God-centered. Our victory cry changes from “I did it” to “God did it.” Isn’t He the one who really deserves the credit anyway?

    Bottom line… you will never be strong enough to win the fight on your own. You must have Holy Spirit Power.
