Satan, the father of lies, walks about – like a roaring lion – seeking whom he may devour (I Peter 5:8). In the midst of the great battles that rage around us, we forget that this is – above all – a spiritual war. And, spiritual wars are fought with spiritual weapons.
Of course, physical weapons will play their part, but they are NOT the weapons of OUR warfare(2 Corinthians 10:4). I keep forgetting that, so I’m sure that you do too.
As much as I want to wade into this battle with ‘swords drawn’, I know that vengeance is God’s duty – not ours (Romans 12:19). This is a hard lesson for me to swallow. The injustice in this world grates upon my soul, and it cries out for vengeance.
