Scripture:

Prov. 21:30 (NIV)
There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD.

Comment:

Sometimes we hear believers, even spiritual leaders, warning people not to make warfare against the evil spiritual world. They argue that the forces we challenge are too strong. It’s probably out of the best of intentions that they warn, but it is actually a real disservice. The effect of the alerts is that too often people choose not to fight at all, and the result is that the evil spirits are free to continue to attack.

Can the evil spiritual world overpower us? The answer is: Yes and No. Yes, the enemy can overpower us, if we are fighting in our own strength, and No, the enemy can’t overpower us, if we fight on behalf of God.

Prov. 21:30 clearly shows how totally superior God is compared to the enemy. However wise the enemy may act, and however the evil spirits may cooperate in battle, they don’t have a chance against the Lord.

It would be both foolish and harmful to fight in our own strength, and without God’s guidance, but why would we want to? We have the Holy Spirit, the strongest power of the universe, within us.

Eph. 1:19 (AMP)
… the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe …

That power is given to us by Jesus in order to resist the enemy. With that power we can overcome not only single demons, but all the power of the enemy.

Luke 10:19 (NIV)
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.
