Today we conclude a very rewarding spiritual journey of learning deeper truths about, spiritual warfare. In the series we have learned what spiritual warfare is, the nature of the warfare, and the weapons of the warfare.

Today's topic urges us to be stronger than the strongman in order to retain our possession. Our possession brothers and sisters is God's Kingdom which has been given to us. Jesus, in encouraging his disciples said to them “but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” John 16:33. Further on he says “fear not little flock, for it is your Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom”. What is God's Kingdom? It is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit [Roma 14: 17]. Therefore, as believers we are called upon to know the nature of our warfare, name the enemy and his strategies and finally master the principles and the weapons of our warfare. In order to keep the strongman away, the following is worth of our consideration.

1. We must not rely on our experience in our battles with the devil. David in his battle with Goliath, recognized his past battles in protecting his father's sheep, however he made recognition that his battle with Goliath depended fully on God's help [1 Sam 17: 37].

2. We should never trust our own strength or preparedness. Jesus warns us not to trust our own armours. It is apparent that we can be tempted to believe in our human armours that the world provides. Without the help of God, Satan can take away such weapons and make us vulnerable to his attacks.

3.Our strength is limited. God does not expect of us to take a passive position in our battles. Our participation is important. David made a courageous move to face the giant with a 'stone' against his sophisticated weapons. God honored this attempt of faith and slayed the enemy. However, we must never trust our weapons; instead we should rely on the power of God to use whatever is in our hands to deliver the battles of our lives in success to his glory.

4.When we fight out battles in the strength of our self-confidence, we expose our lives to the attacks of the enemy. “Whoever does not gather with me scatters” Luke 11:23.

5. Finally, the weapons of our warfare are not ours but God's. He has really provided them to us. These are listed in Ephesians 6: 10-18.

In conclusion, be encouraged in all your current and future battles by the unchanging truth that “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” 1 John 4:4. By this, the strongman who is the devil will always be locked out of our lives if we are faithful to keep God's promise for our lives.
