The Battle In Your Prayer
Everyone faces different challenges in life every day like inside their homes, school, their workplace, or wherever they go and whoever they meet, there will always be challenges or battles, you can say. Maybe some people just live life every day with their routine and do not realize that there are battles going on in their minds, hearts, and body. However, most of the time, a lot of people prioritize their battles in the physical, emotional, and mental, leaving the spiritual aspect behind because not everyone sees the value or the importance when it comes to spiritual battles. But just like what we talked about in our last article of this series, (link of Strength through Prayer), there are aspects that you would need strength on, to get through every day because each day there are battles you would face in every aspect but people do not realize the most important aspect and leave it out sometimes and that is the spiritual warfare.
In 2 Corinthians 10:4, “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” This clearly means that amidst the battles you face in the physical whether in your health or stability, your mental or emotional, the weapons you have started in the spiritual. Before you fight your daily physical battles, you should know that you are battling against the strongholds of your life that the devil is trying to put in you, especially in your mind. The devil came to destroy your life but God came to give you a life lived in abundance just like how John 10:10 says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” The reason why you fight battles even in prayers is that you are trying to fight the strongholds that you are facing in the spiritual world. If you are not strong in your spirit, your physical, mental and emotional will eventually break down. It is important to establish yourself in prayers that through prayers you will be victorious because in prayers there is victory, which we’ll be talking about in the last article for this “Prayer Series.”
The weapons that the Bible is saying that we hold that are not carnal simply means that it is not seen in the physical. The battles in the physical are not easy but the spiritual warfare you may face every day may have a greater effect in your life and even for eternity. The weapons that God has given you are the truth, faith, grace, and righteousness. The truth of who you are means your identity in Christ, that you are now redeemed by the blood of Jesus and so you have the confidence to walk in God’s plan for your life. The faith that you have, that whatever battles you face in the physical, mental, and emotional, you will overcome it through prayer and the weapons you hold. The grace that God has in your life that’s why you can live life according to His Word and walk in it to see your victory in your everyday battle and the righteousness that you will not give in to the world’s way on how to battle but you will have the ability through prayer to fight your battles. When a person gives importance to the spiritual, the other aspects would just follow. That is why there will always be a battle in prayer because it’s also a form of surrender to the Lord that whatever you’re facing, you will overcome it through His help.
And so, we, the Salvation Garden, pray that you realize the importance of prayer and that in every prayer there is a battle going on. That God’s hand is upon you and every time you pray, He is working in your life even if you cannot see it. God is working in mysterious ways and so just keep praying and you will eventually see the manifestation of your prayers. The battles you’ve won through prayers will be seen in God’s perfect timing.
