We are at war, but not the kind of war you might be thinking of, where guns and ammunition are used, we are engaged in a spiritual war between the satanic and our God. The weapons of this war are different and need to be battled in the spirit. Don’t be naive; the flesh is also involved, Satan has many weapons, and he will do battle against the physical as well; but because our help comes from the Lord, we must engage spiritually. I feel that it’s crucial for me to go over our weapons of war once again; here’s your reminder so you can shore up your armor:
- Conquer unbelief
- Stay free of sin
- Trust God
- Be secure in your salvation
- Listen to the Holy Spirit
Paul gives us a list in Ephesians 6. Read it today. It’s more important than ever that we listen and armor up.
*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. *Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. *Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, *and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. *In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; *and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, *praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, Ephesians 6:12-18
