Comment:

Spiritual warfare is no game. Our enemy has had thousands of years of practice to deceive people. We cannot deal with such opponents, with our own power and ability. But, Jesus has already won the victory. Therefore, we are not fighting for the victory, but from the victory.

Jesus, who has won the victory, has given us authority over all the power of the enemy.

Luke 10:19
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

The fact that we have authority is one thing. How we use it is another thing. We are not supposed to fight the way we think we should. We need the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

John 16:7
Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.

Jesus, our Supreme Commander, has sent the Helper, the Holy Spirit, to us. He will help us fight in the right way. As long as we listen to Him, and follow His instructions, we will be His tools to defeat the enemy. But, if we choose our own way, we risk being defeated.
