Proverbs 20:18

18 a  Plans are established by counsel;
by b  wise guidance c  wage war.

Luke 14:31

31Or what king, going out to encounter another king in war, will not d  sit down first and deliberate whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand?

1 Corinthians 9:25-27

25Every e  athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we f  an imperishable. 26So I do not run aimlessly; I g  do not box as one h  beating the air. 27But I discipline my body and i  keep it under control
Greek  I pummel my body and make it a slave
lest after preaching to others k  I myself should be l  disqualified.

Ephesians 6:10-20

The Whole Armor of God

10Finally m  be strong in the Lord and in n  the strength of his might. 11 o  Put on p  the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against q  the schemes of the devil. 12For r  we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against s  the rulers, against the authorities, against t  the cosmic powers over u  this present darkness, against v  the spiritual forces of evil w  in the heavenly places. 13Therefore x  take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in y  the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14Stand therefore z  having fastened on the belt of truth, and aa  having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15and ab  as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16In all circumstances take up ac  the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all ad  the flaming darts of ae  the evil one; 17and take af  the helmet of salvation, and ag  the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18praying ah  at all times ai  in the Spirit aj  with all prayer and supplication. To that end ak  keep alert with all perseverance, making al  supplication for all the saints, 19and am  also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth an  boldly to proclaim ao  the mystery of the gospel, 20for which I ap  am an ambassador aq  in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

1 Timothy 6:11-12

Fight the Good Fight of Faith

11But as for you ar  O man of God as  flee these things. at  Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. 12 au  Fight the good fight of the faith. av  Take hold of the eternal life aw  to which you were called and about which you made ax  the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

2 Timothy 4:7

7 ay  I have fought the good fight az  I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
