The struggle, the struggle, the struggle, oh the struggle. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world” (Ephesians 6:12). Thus, we must be well equipped to prepare ourselves for a celestial game of tug of war. This game is one that is stacked in favor of our enemies, as they recruited Goliath, the minions of the dark, and nefarious rulers of old to pull against us. With this crew they begin edging us closer to their side of the battle line, which was drawn since the day of our inception. Their tugs of guilt, defiance, and hopelessness fuel their strength, which ultimately depletes us. However, like ants in a colony, God works alongside us to provide the aid of Sampson, his angels, and saints of old to turn the battle in our favor, because when God is for us, who can stand against us.
