Victorious Together

“For waging war you need guidance, and for victory many advisers.” Proverbs 24:6 (NIV)

Thousands of dedicated men and women have sacrificed and served our country.  Not missing a beat, they’ve left family and careers behind to fight for our freedom. And not a single one of them headed off to the war zone alone.  None of them were self-reliant nor did any of them resist the wisdom and strategic plans of their military leaders.

So why do we try to wage spiritual warfare singlehandedly?

Dedicated yes.  Willing to sacrifice and serve our God – yes.  If you searched our faces, you wouldn’t find anyone more serious about defeating strongholds and raising the flag of victory.  But often, we miss the mark by falling prey to one of Satan’s greatest lies – we can do it alone.  We don’t need counseling, we don’t need accountability, we don’t need anyone else’s input – we can do it alone.  We’re strong enough and bold enough to take the enemy down singlehandedly.

Have you ever said those words?  Have you then found yourself scrambling for cover as the enemy’s attacks hedged you into a corner wondering what went wrong?  God never intended for us to do life alone. Instead, He created us to partner together.  Fighting for our freedom will never be sweeter than when we leave self-reliance behind and embrace God’s strategic plan.  He desires for us to dig deeper into the Word and allow His Spirit to empower us. When we join forces praying together, seeking Godly wisdom and applying the truths of God’s word, we can be victorious. And the enemy will be defeated because we seized the right plan to take him down – empowered by our mighty Warrior.

“Father, how incredible to know that You fly the banner of victory over us before the battle begins.  Help us to leave self behind and join together in one voice to defeat the enemy’s attacks.”

For His Glory
