We've Got the Power!

4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 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. NIV

I have to apply this to my life daily, sometimes more than once. Followers of Christ must fight against what this world can do to us; tempted to hate, to mentally destroy, to use crass and vulgar language which can become one of the biggest hindrances to our witness. These can cause bad attitudes and pride in our own opinions, and we need to recognize how ugly these are to our Father. Pray and resist, and use the weapons of the divine powers with which we have been gifted.
