Revelation 12:7 (NLT)
Then there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels.

Observation:  I think back from time to time to a comment made that this is not a playground, but a battleground. We fight not against flesh and blood, although there is quite enough of that, but against principalities and powers. There are powers in realms we cannot see, lthough the effects of their violence are clear…rage, dissension, sexual immorality, idolatry, greed, arrogance, selfishness, laziness, and more.
Application:  The army of God is at war. This means there will be attacks. The enemy will come after me to steal, kill, destroy. I am not exempt. What am I to do? First, trust in Jesus. Second, train my mind and spirit and body for battle. Scripture, prayer, godly counsel, a band of brothers. .
Prayer:  Lord Jesus, I want to follow you. That will lead me into battle, just like Peter in the garden. But our weapons are not made of steel, but of spirit. Make me dangerous to the gates of hell. Make me a force to be reckoned with. I can’t do this. Only you can. Train me. Equip me. Teach me. Empower me. I ask it in the strong and loving name of Jesus.
