Just for a second let that thought settle in your heart and mind. Born to win—win what? Obviously I’m not talking about winning a lottery, a political office, sports or beauty passion context. No! I am not talking about any of that, but about winning the real battle of life. Has it occurred to you who you’re in a battle with, who the real enemy is? No! Your enemy is not your wife, husband, son or daughter. Not even that person you can’t stand. This enemy’s ready to take you out even before you realized you have an enemy. Every single day you are in a battle whether or not you know it. Since, you can’t even see the enemy, how can you fight with conventional weapon? So, it behooves one to be properly equipped, dressed and be ready to enter the battle theater. Entering the battlefield requires that you become strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full amour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full amour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Many a people have fallen casualties because they ignored these principles.
So then, fight to win, because you have been born to win!
Christian O. Nwakaihe, M-Div.
