Born into every one of us is an instinct to fight against that which threatens us. For the children of God, we know a battle exists with that which conspires against us. The battle requires us to not only understand our enemies, but the One who is fighting with us and for us. We don’t get to decide if we are in a battle, we can’t walk away. We must stand in the strength the Lord provides. When you choose to declare war, you are refusing to go gently in the night or be taken without a fight.
