For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh,
2 Corinthians 10:3 NASB
There is a war going on, but most don’t realize it! I know that sounds like a line from a sci-fi movie, but it is true.
We live in two realms, the flesh, the things we see, touch, smell, etc…,and the spiritual, the things we don’t see.
The evil forces of the devil will do anything to keep you away from spiritual things and the things of God. You’ll find yourself wrapped up in debate, arguments, hate, worry, instead of walking in the Spirit and the things of God.
Can you identify with the above paragraph? Do you find yourself focusing on the things of this world, when they will pass away, vs the things of God, which are eternal?
If so, you need to wage war! This is a purposeful, focused, disciplined way to live. Press into the things of God. Don’t let anything pull you away. Know that when things come against you, they very may be the work of Satan trying to derail your relationship with God!
Fight back! God is more powerful! You are His child! What Father wouldn’t come to the rescue and help of their own child?
Remeber, this war is for eternal lives!
Lord, help us to realize that we are in a spiritual war. You have given us everything we need to fight and stand firm. Give us strength and insight so that we don’t allow the ploys of the evil one to distract us from living for You.
