We all face challenges. On any given day, the problems of real life can take your breath away. Your marriage, finances, relationships, and health are regular struggles, and these are just the beginning.  Doesn’t the Bible say the war has already been won? So why do we still battle?

In a down-to-earth, let’s-get-real approach, popular Bible teacher Havilah Cunnington cuts through the confusion and shows us how to

  • Discern whether we’re dealing with battles within ourselves, resistance from God, or genuine fights with the Devil.
  • Throw off misconceptions about spiritual warfare, and understand what Jesus really said about our spiritual authority and the certainty we have in him.
  • Ask the right questions and build a realistic battle plan to win one day at a time.

With humor and honesty, Cunnington lays out practical tools to thrive in the face of hardship, enabling us to walk forward in the confidence that, because of Jesus, we really are stronger than the struggle.

Praise for Stronger Than The Struggle

Christian language like warfare or supernatural battle might feel scary or confusing. Overwhelming explanations of otherworldly occurrences can be difficult to understand! But Havilah has taken a difficult subject and made it simple. You don’t have to be seminary-trained to fight and I love how Havilah has handed everyone a sword and taught us how to use it!

Bianca Olthoff
Bible teacher and best-selling author of Play With Fire

The struggle and the fight are not topics we like to talk much about in the church. If we do, we often approach it from a place of defeat rather than victory. As the popular saying goes, “the struggle is real”, but God has prepared us with the necessary strength to walk in victory. I am grateful that Havilah has written so beautifully about the strength found in God for whatever struggle you may be facing. Not only is Havilah a dear friend, but she is one of my favorite Bible teachers. In a clear and brilliantly communicated manner, she brings the Word to life in a profound yet practical way. This same ability to communicate God’s word shines through in her writing. Stronger Than the Struggle is a book for anyone who wants to fully walk out the victory available in Jesus.”

Banning Liebscher
Jesus Culture Founder and Pastor

“I love Havilah. She is fierce and kind and in so many ways the little sister I never had, which is why I am thrilled she has taken the time to capture these truths in Stronger Than the Struggle: Uncomplicating Your Spiritual Battle. On these pages she demystifies and de-weirds the topic of spiritual warfare with a get real approach that lends perspective while equipping you with practical tools. We wrestle not with flesh and blood, but it would be a mistake to imagine that we do not wrestle. The good news is that we don’t do it alone and in Christ we win!”

Lisa Bevere
New York Times bestselling author, Co-founder of Messenger International

“We are in a fight, we may not want it or acknowledge it, but that doesn’t change the fact that we are in it.  It’s time we learnt how to fight right; to take a hold of what God has given us and use the power that resides within us. This book will help you become stronger than your struggle.”  

Charlotte Gambill
Lead Pastor Life Church U.K.

“I love how Havilah approaches this topic with boldness and authenticity. She wholeheartedly lives this message, reminding us that we have everything in Christ we need, to win.”

Christine Caine
Best Selling Author, Founder A21 & Propel Women

“In Havilah’s new book, Stronger Than the Struggle, her authoritative and down-to-earth perspective on spiritual warfare sheds light on the spirit realm in a way that is clear and easy to understand. I believe Havilah’s story will dispel any fear that you may have when approaching the mysteries of the unseen realm. This book is a practical guide to spiritual warfare. Read this book, and you will be equipped with tools to overcome the battles that all Christians face. Stronger Than the Struggle could very well change your life forever!”

Kris Vallotton
Senior Associate Leader, Bethel Church, Co-Founder of Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, Author of several best-selling books, including The Supernatural Ways of Royalty and Spirit Wars.

Part girl-next-door, part wise-prophet, Havilah Cunnington is the kind of woman you want to both share dessert with and take notes from. Plus, every time I’m with her, I feel like I’ve been treated by a spiritual audiologist because I walk away hearing God’s voice more clearly! And I can pretty much guarantee you’ll feel the same way after perusing the pages of her new book, Stronger Than the Struggle.”

Lisa Harper
author of The Sacrament of Happy

Spiritual battles are often perceived as weird or mystical. Havilah brings great clarity to the subject, and provides simple, and relevant ways to address them in your life. Stronger Than the Struggle: Uncomplicating Your Spiritual Battle, will revolutionize your faith walk and prepare you for whatever comes your way!”

John Bevere
Best-Selling Author/Minster, Messenger International

More Praise

“I adore Havilah and her message that no matter what comes our way, because of Jesus we are stronger than the struggle. Havilah spotlights our real enemy and how to fight back in powerful yet practical ways. If you want to walk in strength and confidence, this book will give you tools to do just that!”

Alli Worthington
Author of Fierce Faith

Havilah Cunnington is an absolute treasure. She’s one of the most gifted communicators I know. Her insights and stories, laced with fabulous humor, always have deep impact on me. And now she brings us this wonderful book, Stronger Than the Struggle. It is packed with wisdom and practical application of truths to help each of us succeed in a life that has conflict. This conflict is called spiritual warfare. There’s no escaping the fact that battles exist, as we were born into this war. But they need not become our focus, nor should they become a place of discouragement. Here Havilah leads us into profound yet practical truths that inspire a heart of absolute trust in a good and perfect Father who always ensures our victory. I believe this 

book will become a source of encouragement and insight for countless numbers of people. Be one of them!”

Bill Johnson
When Heaven Invades Earth and God Is Good

“The spiritual struggle is real and often defined wrongly by the people who are supposed to lead us. I remember when I was learning my spiritual authority and going through some very real battles with insecurity, spiritual encounters, and even just flat out intimidation from the enemy. I was looking for a book like this. I have read so many books that didn’t empower me but left me more confused. Along comes Havilah’s book, Stronger than the Struggle. I am so glad she wrote it and I am so glad this generation has it because we are living in a time with the most emotionally intelligent people who need an emotionally intelligent writer to define from her own experience the struggle and the overcoming. Havilah holds no punches in her own vulnerability with struggles and spiritual battles. I felt myself in those pages as I read them and I know so many of you will too! Talk about a tool for clearly understanding the struggle and our place of authority in it! I think like me, you will be so grateful you had Havilah’s life picture and stories along with her excellent teaching to draw a line in your heart over your 

very own spiritual journey and God’s power through the scriptures to help you navigate.” 

Shawn Bolz
Television personality, minister, and author of Translating God,
God Secrets, and Growing Up with God

“I am SUPER excited about this book so beautifully named Stronger Than the Struggle. Too often we tend to complicate life, which leads to more battles than necessary instead of living a life trusting that God’s got everything under control. In this warfare manual, as I like to call it, we are given specific tools to discern, understand, and conquer once and for all! Your life will never be the same after reading this and you WILL become stronger than your struggle!”

Real Talk Kim
Author of Beautifully Whole and senior pastor at Church of the Harvest

Havilah is my GIRL! I’ve known her for nineteen years and she is the real deal. Authentic, powerful, happy, in love with the Word of God, a loving wife and mom, a great friend, and a powerful 

communicator who speaks and writes the timely heart of God.


Jenn Johnson
Cofounder of Bethel Music

“An invaluable, heartfelt, spiritual insight that will both encourage and excite the reader. This affirming message of spiritual warfare must be

read and treasured.”


Heather Lindsey
Speaker and author of Silent Seasons

“Havilah is one of my favorite storytellers. Her comedic timing is only matched by her ability to gently expose the human condition in all its grit and glory with a wink. At a time in history filled with relative truth, Havilah makes it her daily practice to search out the clearest, most liberating of all the ‘truths.’ She delivers it in a way that we feel an immense sense of not only clarity, but belonging and camaraderie. This book is bound to give us tools that we’ve been long looking for. Tools that will help us get free and stay free.”

Amanda Cook

“We all have struggles. At times, they seem overwhelming. But what is truly rare, is someone who can articulate with everyday insights and practical ways to overcome these difficulties.

Havilah has been given this gift. With humor and humility, she is able to guide us out of emotional dead ends. Stronger Than the Struggle will show you the way, where a moment ago, there seemed to be no way. I’m confident this message will speak to you!”

Francis Anfuso
Senior Pastor at Rock of Roseville and preacher at KLove

“This book carries a living word for each of us. Through her wisdom and life experiences, Havilah reveals divine insights that bring understanding to spiritual warfare, clarity to our identity, and purpose to the struggle.”

Karen Wheaton
Founder and senior leader of the Ramp
