Fight-but choose to be clad in God’ Armor!

I will lose every spiritual battle I fight because I am choosing the weapons of the world instead of being clad in the Armor of God. Called by God to work in ministry means I am immediately launched into another level of spiritual warfare.  This type of warfare requires me to be clothed in battle gear at all times.
