10:4 For the weapons of our warfare - Those we use in this war. Are not carnal - But spiritual, and therefore mighty to the throwing down of strong holds - Of all the difficulties which men or devils can raise in our way.

    This is a revelational scripture for us to know that we need to fight using the spritual weapons which are very potent in God to overcome stronghold of darkness and the devil.The bible talks about the whole world lying in WICKEDNESS and that the secret place of this world is the habitation of CRUELTY!So to survive in this kind of world we must not war after the flesh but engage in spritual warfare using our mighty spritual weapons on a daily basis for we fight against a tireless and relentless enemy--- that old serpent!we shall remain victorious in Jesus Name.Halleluyah!

  • Pamela on 2 Corinthians 10:4
    Paul is speaking to a rebelious people about the reality of warfare. When we believe in Jesus with all our hearts we must also believe His word which in John 16 33 says that in this world we will have tribulation but be of good cheer I have overcome the world. Wow! Jesus assures us that we need not fear about the logistics of how we will overcome our adversity but that through Him we have blessed assurance that victory is ours. 3 things pray seek God 1st the bible says in james 4 7 Submit yourself to God resist the devil and He shall flee. 2nd Allow the Word of God to work in You like never before surround yourself with psalms when you feel defeated ignore that and resite I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. 3rd have faith! It is impossible to please God without faith. Face your enemy head on and know that Through Jesus we wear the victors crown! Be blessed.
