Those who partner with Jesus in any ministry will face challenges from the evil forces that live among us. The devil and his minions will do whatever it takes to try and get you to curse God; it’s their mission to get you to deny him. I recognize when torment is coming because some people around me are sensitive to their presence and react negatively without knowing why. It’s not only mental torment; it can become physical; he will use whatever method he thinks will stop you from your mission. For some reason, for me, he tries to destabilize me by injuring my right foot; this is the third injury I’ve had to the same foot, only this time there is breakage, but it’s not in a place that disables me. I can still walk on it and stand firm! Our feet are our firm foundation, like Jesus, and any injury can take us off balance. It may be a representation of a spiritual battle that’s coming. However, I am prepared with a sword, spiritual armor, the Holy Spirit, and the power of Jesus! I will not be defeated. I am delighted when a battle ensues because I know something good is about to happen in the kingdom of God! Until you begin to look at your challenges as a spiritual battle, you will be defeated before it begins. Rise up, mighty warriors of God; know where your power comes from; it’s not in yourself; it’s in your submission to God. Allow him to defeat your enemy!
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 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. Ephesians 6:11-13
