“Take all the people of war with you.” Jos 8:1 NKJV

 When you’re under spiritual attack, you need to surround yourself with “the people of war.” They are experienced in spiritual warfare and know how to deal with the Enemy. They have proven strategies for victory and a tenacious faith that rises up and says, “If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Ro 8:31). The truth is, the people of war are the people of the Word. They know how to take the sword of the spirit, which is the Word of God, and use it to defeat the Enemy (See Eph 6:17). They’re not hesitant about marching into the Enemy’s camp and taking back everything he has stolen from them (See 1Sa 30:8). Anybody can stand with you in the good times, but when you find somebody who can stand with you in the bad times, treasure them and build a relationship with them. The Bible says, “A brother is born for adversity” (Pr 17:17). Did you get that? They’re born for battle! They’re not just strong in faith, they’re strong in fight. And you won’t necessarily find these people in pulpits and choir lofts; they blow no trumpets, wave no banners, and demand no applause. But they know how to boldly approach the throne of grace and claim the promises of God (See Heb 4:16). After Joshua conquered Jericho, God said to him, “Take all the people of war with you, and arise, go up to Ai. See, I have given into your hand the king…his people…his city, and his land.” So if you’re in a battle today, take “the people of war with you.”
