15 Potent Spiritual Warfare Scriptures That May Help Overcome Life Struggles


As believers, we have an active and powerful enemy. He will not stop ruining God's plans.

He will make attacks, create obstacles, as well as arrange distractions and challenges to stop you. It is the reason why we should always be alert and ready for spiritual warfare. According to the Bible, we are in a constant wrestle as believers.

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Eph 6:12

Now, we have established the fact that there is a warfare; thus, how we should defend ourselves? Here are fifteen spiritual warfare scriptures that may help you with this.

No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me," declares the Lord. Is. 54:17

This scripture is appropriate for moments in life when it looks like there is a conspiracy against you. Simply begin to pray and confess it over that time, and everything will become better.

Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. Matt. 18:18-19

You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4

As a child of God, the scripture reveals that you have a different paternity. You hail from God and carry his genetic makeup. As such, it doesn’t really matter who has decided to come against you.

Whether it is an individual, system, organization, or group, you have already overcome them because the greater one lives in you!

Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Tim. 6:12

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 2 Cor. 10:4-5

When we talk about spiritual warfare, there are believers who are quick to assume that one person or group of them is responsible for all their woes and misfortunes. The scripture above alludes to the fact that the weapons we fight with are not carnal in nature. It simply tells us that the enemy we are fighting isn’t carnal too.

In other words, your boss at work isn’t the enemy, and your spouse isn’t the evil person too.
