Sometimes you feel like there is a target on your heart, and every dart that Satan throws pierces the bullseye. Many times you open the door for evil by speaking words that trigger an unexpected reaction; like you gave permission for Satan to pull back the bow and release the arrows. This is when that shield of protection, the guard on your heart becomes an important piece of armor. It helps to deflect the words you hear and cause them to fall to the ground, never penetrating the surface. When those arrows keep hitting the same spot on your armor, it causes a weakness. That’s when you know it’s time to call in reinforcements! Cry out for Jesus! Let Him handle the enemy for you! Not the person, but the evil that’s controlling them. Remember that our fight is not against flesh and blood, but the powers of darkness; he just uses people as a tool to do his dirty deeds.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
