Father, forgive me for the times I have not taken the threat of evil seriously. Give me a Holy revulsion for anything that is tied to what is unholy and opposed to Your work and will. Let me not be deceived by temptation and deliver me from the power of the evil one in all of his forms. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. AMEN.
The battle we face is not just a physical one. Instead, it is a spiritual battle with powers that we do not easily see and which are very powerful. We shouldn't dismiss this as an imaginary battle or as an irrelevant struggle. Just as clearly as Satan was crouching at Cain's door, desiring to have him, so he crouches at our door (Genesis 4:7). He will use his forces of evil to do all he can to defeat, destroy, or corrupt us. We must take this war seriously and recognize the spiritual power of our foe.
We as Christians need to recognize that we are in a spiritual war for the souls of our family, for ourselves and for our community. We need be suited up to do battle against the enemy of our souls, our families and our community. If we don’t suit up and enter the fight we will lose everything! We may not see the war with our natural eyes but it is raging all around us so we need to see with spiritual eyes and attack the enemy.
Listen to King Solomon’s words:
There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under Heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to rebuild. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to lose. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak up. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.
GOD BLESS YOU!
