Sun Tzu is known as a Chinese military strategist, a philosopher, and general in the 6th century who is widely recognized for his work The Art of War a treatise on military strategy.
Quote from Sun Tzu (500BC): You win your battles by making no mistakes. Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated. Hence the skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible and does not miss the moment for defeating the enemy.
Life is filled with seasons, there seasons with spiritual attacks, there seasons prosperity, there is seasons where we are successful and there are seasons of lack.
What God is looking for, is for us to develop a culture and an attitude that we remain consistently, the same regarding of the external circumstances or regardless of the season.
We are in a season of spiritual warfare; when we see that we’re at the brink of a break thought in your life and the enemy just comes in “strong” to keep you from getting to that place that God has destined for you, that’s spiritual warfare!
We need to understand that there are forces, both angelic and demonic, that are working around us. The battles are intense, the enemy will use circumstances, events, people, things and even doubt. These types of battles are fought by spiritual forces of darkness that exist in the invisible realm around us.
Ephesians 6:10-11 (NKJV)
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
The devil is a trickster he’s full of schemes and tricks, he’s been tricking people for thousands of years. We should be able to recognize the Schemes, but, yet we are still getting fooled by the trick, plots and his deceptions. We haven’t wised up to the tricks of the enemy, we keep falling into his traps, he keeps tricking us. He is the master of trickery.
Ephesians 6:12 New King James Version (NKJV)
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
We think that our battles are with human beings, it not with this person or that person, your battle is not with flesh and blood.
We need to recognize that the real issue is not that person the you are arguing with, it’s a spirit that is behind that person who is influencing the events, and until we learn where the essence of the battle is we’ll continue to battle with the wrong person. It’s not the people it’s a spirit behind the people. The enemy wants to keep confusion, frustrated and anger in your life. Sooner or later we must recognize that are battle is not with flesh and blood.
Human logic is NOT going to change a person’s behavior. We have learn to fight the battle spiritually. We have to learn how to do battle and who we are battling.
Sun Tzu; If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
