"Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might" (Eph. 6:10, KJV).
Ephesians 6: 11-18 makes it very clear that we as Christians are at war. But could it be possible that he wants us stop fighting. Last night, the Lord told me yes. Sounds strange, doesn't it? After all, Paul talks about "fighting the good fight" (II Tim. 4:7, KJV). But the Lord led me to read Ecclesiastes 3: 10. It says God makes all things beautiful in his time (KJV). The preceding verses talk about work in a negative way. It seems like I've been fighting a lot and getting nowhere. I now know that's what the Lord wants. He wants all of us to stop fighting in the flesh and let Him fight the battles for us by the power of the Holy Spirit.
