Sometimes God is telling us to stand still with faith, watching and trusting Him to fight the battle for you. This is amazing when it happens, and God does want to do this for us…sometimes.
Other times God wants to lead us through the battle, teaching us to fight, helping us control our thoughts and fears, and showing the strategies of the enemy.
Sometimes, God wants to fight through us and with us. He teaches us to be ready for this at all times:
“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.” Ephesians 6:10-13
