be alert

So if you're serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don't shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ—that's where the action is. See things from his perspective. 

Colossians 3:1-2 ~ The Message

For clarification, the definition we're using for spiritual warfare is:

Spiritual warfare is battle between the members of the Kingdom of God on one side and an extensive network of spirit beings that are loyal to Satan on the other side which is fought in the realm of the spirit. 

And/Or ...

Spiritual warfare is the cosmic war of good versus evil: its battles are fought daily between God and Satan.

Billy Graham explained his opinion on the reality of spiritual warfare in his book Angels:
"We live in a perpetual battlefield …The wars among the nations on earth are mere popgun affairs compared to the fierceness of battle in the spiritual unseen world. This invisible spiritual conflict is waged around us incessantly and unremittingly. Where the Lord works, Satan’s forces hinder; where angel beings carry out divine directives, the devils rage. All this comes about because the powers of darkness press their counterattack to recapture the ground held for the glory of God…"
