Spiritual Warfare – 1
Isaiah 61:3 looks forward to a time where the offerings God makes to humanity will be an exchange for the spirit of heaviness for the garment of praise. There is a new song called “Surrounded” or “Fight my Battles.” Which makes the point that our praise is how we are supposed to fight battles. Check out the Michael W. Smith version.
Perhaps this is a great reminder for us as we sense the tension from the work of sin and evil. If you feel something coming against you, our fight is not against flesh and blood, but with praise, prayer, community, and love. If you think there are things coming against you, then put this and other songs on or find a quiet place and go to pray. Take your task of prayer seriously, for it is often the mode which God uses to advance you and bring his order into chaotic portions of your life.
