I just read an article by someone, who is considered “in-the-know”,who said of North Korea, “While it cannot win a war, it can cause enormous damage and the loss of life even without nuclear weapons.” As soon as I read that I thought about the spiritual warfare that every Christian is engaged in. What we should never forget is this— we are not fighting for victory, but from victory! The victory has already been won by Christ! Satan is a defeated foe, and he knows it. He cannot win! He is doomed for destruction and his time is short. Although he might win some battles against those who are asleep at their post, he has already lost the war. He can inflict a lot of damage but he cannot destroy us. It is we who destroy ourselves— when we forget that Satan has already been defeated and we yield to his temptations and step into his traps. As Christians we have no excuse for our failures—“greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world”(1 John 4:4). We only lose by giving in and/or giving up. We have victory in Jesus—don’t just sing it, claim it!
