“Spiritual Warfare” Bible Verses
The Bible states we are in a spiritual battle and our enemy is Satan! Fortunately, God equips us with His supernatural armor to achieve victory. The Bible states the most effective piece of God’s armor is the “Sword of the Spirit”, which represents His Word. In fact, Jesus prevailed using this weapon (i.e., speaking out God’s Word) when he was attacked by Satan in the desert. Likewise, we need to model Jesus and utilize this powerful weapon. To effectively fight with God’s “Sword of the Spirit”, we must know and obey God’s Word. The following provides power-packed Bible verses that will help you obtain victory when the enemy attacks.

Therefore put on the full armor 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.
