What comes to your mind when I say the words sword fight? Pirates of the Caribbean? Zorro? All of that swashbuckling might make for a good Hollywood movie, but it has little to do with spiritual warfare.
The Bible tells us to put on the whole armor of God, including the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Swagger or a daring, adventuresome spirit is no help when it comes to battling spiritual forces of wickedness in heavenly places. Instead, we humbly use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly ones, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning.
So when was the last time you engaged in a good sword fight with the devil and won?
