Christian life is a warfare

Ephesians 6:11
Take up God’s instruments of war, so that you may be able to keep your position against all the deceits of the Evil One.

Ephesians 6:12
For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against authorities and powers, against the world-rulers of this dark night, against the spirits of evil in the heavens.

1)Eph 6:13 For this reason take up all the arms of God, so that you may be able to be strong in the evil day, and, having done all, to keep your place.
Eph 6:14 Take your place, then, having your body clothed with the true word, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness;
Eph 6:15 Be ready with the good news of peace as shoes on your feet;
Eph 6:16 And most of all, using faith as a cover to keep off all the flaming arrows of the Evil One.
Eph 6:17 And take salvation for your head-dress and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Eph 6:18 With prayers and deep desires, making requests at all times in the Spirit, and keeping watch, with strong purpose, in prayer for all the saints,
Eph 6:19 And for me, that words may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make clear without fear the secret of the good news,
Eph 6:20 For which I am a representative in chains, and that I may say without fear the things which it is right for me to say.

O Lord our God, our hope is in you

2 Chronicles 14:11
And Asa made prayer to the Lord his God and said, Lord, you only are able to give help against the strong to him who has no strength; come to our help, O Lord our God, for our hope is in you, and in your name we have come out against this great army. O Lord, you are our God; let not man’s power be greater than yours.

Lord, let their wrongdoing fall back on their own heads

O Lord my God, I put my faith in you; take me out of the hands of him who is cruel to me, and make me free;
Psalms 7:1

He has made a hole deep in the earth, and is falling into the hole which he has made
Psalms 7:15

His wrongdoing will come back to him, and his violent behaviour will come down on his head.
Psalms 7:16

We live in the flesh, but our fight is spiritual.

For though we may be living in the flesh, we are not fighting after the way of the flesh:
2 Corinthians 10:3

1)2Co 10:4  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds
2Co 10:5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ

War because of the power and pride of great men against us. But God.

Now after this there was war with the Philistines at Gezer; then Sibbecai the Hushathite put to death Sippai, one of the offspring of the Rephaim; and they were overcome.
1 Chronicles 20:4

Sons of Reuben, send your prayers up to God in the fight

And they were helped against them, so that the Hagarites, and those with them, were given into their power. For they sent up prayers to God in the fight, and he gave ear to them, because they put their faith in him.
1 Chronicles 5:20
