Children of God must be strong in spirit in order to triumph in the ongoing spiritual battle. Many people are unaware that there is a spiritual war going on. You should not be oblivious to this war as a child of God. You must stand firm and fight this battle with all of your spiritual weapons of war turned on. Keep in mind that the devil will not stop fighting God's children, which is one of the main reasons you must be spiritually aware. "12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of this world's darkness, against spiritual wickedness in high places," says Ephesians 6:12.
In this battle, many people have died and are being held captive in the devil's camp. If you want to win this battle and never lose, you must avoid displaying certain flaws. These attitudes can cause you to stumble in spiritual battle:
1. Lukewarmness: this attitude has led to the demise of many Christians. This is a sign of spiritual laziness, and God despises spiritually lazy people. Spiritual laziness is characterized by a lack of commitment to God's purposes, and God despises such people. Take a look at Revelation 3:15-16 "15th I know from your works that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish you were either cold or hot. 16 So I'll spit thee out of my mouth because thou art lukewarm, neither cold nor hot." If you are spiritually lazy, you can easily fall.
2. Ineffective prayers: Prayers have power, which is why the Bible encourages us to pray frequently. You can neutralize demonic influence and work miracles in the name of Jesus Christ by praying. However, if you take prayers for granted, the devil will toil over your life and destiny, and you will be vulnerable to spiritual warfare.
3. Sin: Sin acts as a perforator, piercing our spiritual bulletproof, righteousness, and making us vulnerable to the enemy's attack. We are vulnerable to demonic influence and spiritual attacks because of our sin. Our spiritual protection, which we have in our Lord Jesus Christ, is devalued by sin. In spiritual warfare, a child of God who lives a sinful life is on the verge of falling.
