Strong Women, Hushed Battles
Updated: Jan 25, 2021
To my sisters in Christ. You are strong. You are a prayer warrior fighting unseen battles for your family, your relationship, your children, your friends, your co-workers, your life.
This hushed battle is always done behind a closed door and never bragged about.
This silent war can happen alone on your knees, in a prayer room or in a circle with those who choose to spar principalities with you. This sparring always takes place in the lower heavens where these unseen principalities dwell and clashing swords can be heard in spirit. Where armies of angels are cheering you on with the God-appointed ones going with you into battle.
These times of prayer are about shifting, healing, and allowing God to do what He needs to do in the battle. Having to forgive those who have betrayed you, or publicly ridiculed you. Even forgiving yourself. It's about self-control and never lashing out in anger when your deeply wounded. It's about never judging others, but keeping your own side of the street clean and orderly. It's about being accountable to God and repenting if need be.
It's about getting up and putting your armor back on to fight another day, even if you don't have the strength.
That women of God; graciously accepting the silent battle we all face. It's also where the largest battles occur. In silence. It's where we win. In the still quiet place of our warfare. It's a place where champions are made and very seldom recognized.
It's a place where our faith grows and our worries become less.
It's also in that position we learn the skills to fight even the most overwhelming forces of darkness known to mankind. Such is a warriors life. Fight on my sisters!
"For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." – 2 Cor 10:3-5
With armor, a soft cloth, and polish...
