Are You In A Battle?
If there is one thing that I’ve learned from God, it is how to fight. The key: DON’T GIVE UP! Stand firm for the Lord and apply what we call “knee therapy” – get down on your knees and pray, pray, pray!
Spiritual warfare battles can appear to be frightening, exhausting, never-ending, challenging, and full of mountains that just won’t move.
Do you know what the beauty of God is like when you are in your battles? He walks you through it. And, the journey with Him, as well as the outcome, is always greater than anything you can ever imagine.
God’s Love In The Midst Of Your Spiritual Battles
God loves you so much and He is so full of surprises that even in the midst of your spiritual warfare and your weakest moments, He will bless you.
He will put the right things in your hands, the right Spiritual tools to comfort you, guide you, and show you the way He wants you to go.
What I love about God when I am in my battles, is His assurance that He is with you wherever you go. He will reveal Himself to you in sometimes small, sometimes big, but always in powerful ways.
I also love how He teaches us to fight. It is in a way that the world cannot understand. In Ephesians 6, we wear His armor and we fight with truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation, and the Word of God.
Have you used these? Every single piece of armor has the strength and power of God.
The Armor Of God
- Speak the truth, as only the Truth WILL set you free. Jesus said He is the Truth.
- Put on righteousness. Make sure what you do during your battle is morally right. Make no compromises.
- Walk in peace. God is in control and He has you in His righteous right hand where no one can get a hold of you. Remind yourself time and time again of where you are. You can rest in the Lord when you walk in peace.
- Take up the shield of faith. I’ve used Jesus as the shield between my battle and me. I’ve asked Him to step in front of me to protect me. He does.
- Protect your eyes, ears and mind with the helmet of salvation. Be careful what you see, hear and put into your mind.
- Finally, the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Call out your scriptures and tell God what you are feeling and what He promised to do for you. Fight your spiritual warfare with the Word.
Finally, the greatest weapon there is, is love. It breaks all chains and barriers. Learn how to forgive and just love, but learn from the Spirit.
