Although we are flesh we do not walk according to it, by Faith our walk is of The Spirit of God. We are in this world but our hearts are grounded in The Kingdom, therefore we are seeking that City whose Author and Foundation is God.
To walk of the Spirit is to be in constant awareness of the Warfare one is engaged in. This is not outward but inward Warfare, for we are transitioning in our thinking.
Here is where Faith is exercised, the pulling down of the strongholds that reside only in ones thinking. Exercising Faith is by the Spirit of God taking the thoughts that are of this world captive. This is our Spiritual battleground, we by Faith speak against all that is opposed to the Truth of God.
This is a Battle that is Guaranteed for Victory, for we do not Fight by our reasoning mind, but with and in the very Spirit of God.
The Victory that is Guaranteed is what gives one the encouragement to endure to the very end, for by Faith one knows that He that is in us is Greater than the thoughts we wrestle with.
The Victory of God is before us, and just as Scripture states;
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
