Your enemy is not found in men, those are his agents. The evil one is a spirit, having no flesh or blood. Wage war in the right dimension and do not let what is seen, to distract you.
A worldly enemy is a threat, but not the source of the strategies against you. Address the fruit, but be certain to have a plan for the root. The battle is important, but the war is vital.
An undefeated record reveals strengths, but a blemished record reveals opportunities. To know your enemy and to equally know yourself makes you a formidable opponent.
One minute, nor a singular moment makes a man, it is the preponderance of his character, the aggregate of each win and of each lose. Find the lesson in the losses, but do not become lost in the lesson.
Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil. For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heavens.
