Anytime Born-again Christians engage in spiritual warfare, we must have great faith and belief in the Word of God. He is our Maker and we represent His image and likeness on Earth. He equipped every man with "the measure of faith" (Romans 12:3). So, it is up to us to use that faith to defend our rightful position and territory against that which comes "to steal, and to kill, and to destroy" (John 10:10).
Faith and belief in the Word of God mean victory whenever we fight in the spirit realm; no matter the duration. The Apostle Paul referred to faith-fighting as "the good fight of faith" (I Timothy 6:12). It is impossible for a Born-again Christian to win a faith-fight without faith in Christ because He is the Word of God! Christ is the One who dispenses victory and power to win the battles we must endure in this life. It is because "the battle is the Lord's" (I Samuel 17:47), that we are able to defeat the enemy with constant prayer and faith wearing "the whole armour of God" (Ephesians 6:11).
Born-again Christians are entitled and authorized to WIN! I, for one, want to defeat the enemy, and I want to beat him really-really bad! I don't want to defeat him just for myself and my family. I want to defeat the enemy for you, my friends, my community, my neighbors, my country and every unbelieving human being as well. I can't be any more authentic or transparent than this, people!
In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I declare and decree there shall be frequent victories won through unified prayer, and a multitude of souls won for Christ! I declare and decree that I am "strong in the LORD and in the power of His might," and whatsoever I pray according to the will and word of God shall obliterate, annihilate, and destroy every evil plan, every evil scheme, and every demon in the enemy's camp! Amen and Amen!
Therefore, and before I write my in-depth review (because I'm entering the battle for all our sakes), I intend to learn the warfare strategies offered by Dr. Cindy Trimm in her book The Art of War for Spiritual Battle, I intend to wear the whole amour of God (using faith, prayer, and the Word of God), to put Dr. Trimm's strategies to the test.
