So think of it this way: You can exhaust the enemy with your love for people

Standard

By moving in the fruit of the Spirit you can seriously affect the enemy and release yourself into power at the same time. So think of it this way: You can exhaust the enemy with your love for people, with learning to love. You can depress him by learning joy. You can weary him by becoming peace. You can demoralize him with your patience. You can discourage him with your kindness. You can overcome him with goodness. You can debilitate him with acts of faithfulness. You can trouble him with your gentleness. You can dismay him with your self control. You can dishearten him with your faith. You can weaken him with your mercy. You can intimidate him with your intimacy. You can devastate him with grace. You can paralyze him with compassion. You can cripple him with humility!
