When in the fourth century the Huns were ravaging Europe, Ursula, a holy woman in England, is said to have raised an army of 11,000 virgins to fight them. It was an uneven battle, and the results were disastrous. All were slaughtered at Cologne, Germany. The Virgin Islands were named in their honor. History knows of other uneven fights and so does the Bible — Samson versus the Philistines, David versus Goliath, Peter in Gethsemane versus the mob that came to arrest Jesus. No contest, however, is as unevenly matched as when human beings try to overcome their greatest enemy, Satan. As Saint Paul wrote, “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).
With spiritual weapons we can prevail, because Jesus Christ has won the major battle against the devil with His death and triumphant resurrection. Fortified by faith in Him — faith in the Word of the Gospel — we will not only hold our own with Satan but will win the victory. You have no questions to ask of any body, no new way that you need inquire after; no oracle that you need to consult; for whilst you shut yourself up in patience, meekness, humility, and resignation to God, you are in the very arms of Christ, your heart is His dwelling-place, and He lives and works in you . “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” – 1 Peter 5:8
