Proverbs 21:22 NIV

By October 21, 2023No Comments

“One who is wise can go up against the city of the mighty and pull down the stronghold in which they trust.” Proverbs‬ ‭21‬:‭22‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Want to be inspired for battle, especially spiritual warfare? Here is your verse. How often in the movies or on TV do we see the smaller less physical person outwit the bigger more athletic opponent? Think MacGyver (if you’re over 40). Even now the guy looks like a 17 year old kid. But, nothing could stop him. Give him a paper clip and a piece of gum and he would figure out how to overcome anything, even a nuclear bomb. Swap fantasy TV and movie characters for real life God followers. How about David and Goliath? Solomon had some first hand evidence of those feats by his dad and others. Remember the guys marching and tooting horns when “the walls came a crumbling’ down”? The Bible, both Old and New Testament, is full of examples of the people on God’s side, walking in His wisdom, power and experience who defeated the evil one attempting to destroy or simply block them from His purpose. Many were very average people like us. Paul was a squirrel little guy with bad eyes yet he authored over half the books in the New Testament. They tried everything to stop him, even death. Nothing worked until God’s time to bring him home arrived. Walk in the wisdom of God and watch the walls of resistance fall. Today listen to God’s wisdom then move boldly. #BeTheEdge

“This is what the Lord says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s.” 2 Chronicles‬ ‭20‬:‭15‬b NIV‬‬
