Spiritual Warfare Treatise

Spiritual Warfare Treatise

Well, the Beginning of a Treatise

Many of you know that my second Historical Christian Fiction novel (what a mouthful) in The Pray-ers series focuses on Spiritual Warfare.

I want to share with you a few sentences that Dr. Dale, the modern day track coach says at the beginning of his discussion on Spiritual Warfare:

1. Spiritual Warfare has been marketed so we are wrongly calling God’s actions on earth and His sovereign work in our lives, spiritual warfare.

2. Acts of God, and natural disasters, are wrongly considered spiritual warfare.

3. The difficulties He brings into our lives so we can be a Godly example to others, are wrongly considered spiritual warfare.

4. The challenges which come our way to strengthen our faith muscle, if we let it, are wrongly considered spiritual warfare.

5. The opportunities God gives us to comfort others, because he has first comforted us, are thwarted because we wrongly look at the situation, the difficulty, the challenge, as spiritual warfare.

6. Spiritual Warfare has been so marketed, the things God uses to prepare us for the future are wrongly considered spiritual warfare!

You may find this a concern, and I fully understand that. But please allow Dr. Dale to challenge your thinking.

He is challenging mine!

Prayer Focus – Results or Relationship

Prayer Focus – Results or Relationship

Which Prayer Focus is Yours?

Have you ever considered the question?

I think the church needs to be awakened to what prayer really is to be focused upon!

Take a quick listen to this 92 second video.

So, look at your prayers later today or tomorrow.

Ask yourself what your focus is when you pray.

And if your focus is “results” then own that, admit it. And ask the Lord to change your prayer focus.

Do you believe that your prayers are already “relationship” driven? Praise the Lord! And ask Him to give you a deeper sense of intimacy with Him.

I often give the following testimony:

I remember asking God to teach me what “Intimacy with God” meant. I told Him, “Lord, I understand intimacy with my wife, but what does intimacy with You look like?”


It felt like the Lord was silent for 3 years. And then it dawned on me (3 years after I started praying for it), my love for prayer was the answer to my prayer for intimacy.


God gave me a love for prayer, as an answer to my prayer for greater, deeper intimacy with Him.

He will answer your prayer too, and you will be on your way to having “relationship” focused prayers rather that “results” focused prayers.

So, what are you going to do? Remember Dr. Charles F. Stanley’s first life principle, “Intimacy with God, His highest priority for you life. . .”

Make it you highest priority also.

NOTE: I didn’t say that you are NOT to ask God for things, after all He says through James, “we do not have because we do not ask.” (James 4:2e) I’m merely saying, don’t let “results” be your focus.
