Peace Through War

peace through warIt’s been said, “Nothing guarantees the triumph of evil like refusing to fight it. Great evil is therefore never defeated by peace activists, but by superior military might.”
For the believer in Christ, inward peace comes through spiritual warfare (Eph. 6:10-18). We stand firm when the enemy attacks, not sit down in a peace circle or run. We can win each battle, not because of who we are, but because of Whose we are – Jesus’. He has given us superior military capabilities – the armor of God.
We have peace with and of God going into battle knowing that our cause is righteous – becoming more like Jesus (feet fitted); the ability to win in each situation we face (breastplate of righteousness), a victorious strategy to follow (belt of truth); and, a shield to stand behind when life’s arrows start flying (shield of the faith). We start from a position of strength not weakness, wholeness not ineptness (helmet of salvation). We’ve got a source of truth that cuts through the enemy’s propaganda (sword of the Spirit) and a power source that gives us the strength and how to use them all (pray in the Spirit on all occasions).
War is not desirable, but it’s inevitable for the believer. Victory is already ours, but we’ve got to fight.
