The Lord asked me today
Do you want to keep shadowboxing with flesh?
Would you instead like to come and make war in the heavenly places?
Would you like to do your fighting where it will actually do good?
I want to fight the fight where the battle is already won. No shadowboxing. Only standing in the victory gained by Christ. No flesh vs. flesh. Only the identification of the spirit holding flesh captive. No putrid feelings of vindication and self-righteousness in the gloating that another is left behind in bondage. Only grace upon grace.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the cosmic powers over this present darkness,
against the spiritual forces of evil
in the heavenly places.
