"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."
Ephesians 6:12 NKJV
We are in spiritual warfare and the enemy is trying all that he can to outsmart God. Unfortunately for satan God has already won. Satan is powerless to God’s people; God said that NO weapon formed against you shall prosper. Don’t let the enemy get in your head like he’s already won because he hasn’t. The only way satan can win is if you give him permission to by seeping into your mind and planting seeds in your heart. Next thing you know you’ll be speaking negatively over your life. However, today I decree and declare that the weapons formed against you, those storms coming for you, the lies, that toxic relationship, the depression, the stress, it will not prosper. You still have a Savior and God is still up to something good for you but you have to claim it. You have to push your way to God. One good way is by reading the bible. God wants you to dig deeper into The Word and to dig deeper into Him. It has been weighing heavy on my heart how many Christians are neglecting the usage of their bibles. God didn’t give us His word to just sit and collect dust, to be pulled out only when we are in church, or just to quote here and there. The bible is vital to a Christian in their journey. We have to be fully equipped with the armor of God, and that comes by feeding ourselves with the Word. The journey will be great so we need to eat like Elijah was told in 1 Kings 19:7. You may be like Elijah afraid and ready to give up, but that’s because you are running off your own strength and knowledge. You don’t have enough armor on you to fight satan and his little demons off. Elijah needed food for his journey and in your case; you need to eat The Word. You need to feed yourself God’s word. Don’t let the enemy think he has you because God already promised that no weapon formed against you will prosper. So keep that in your mind as you go about your day and negative thoughts come up, that is just the enemy getting into your head trying to make you think you lost. Remember we are not fighting against flesh, we are fighting against spirits and dark forces and there is absolutely no way you can fight with just your strength and human knowledge you need the word of God to get you through it and fight. You have to fight, you can’t just sit back and allow satan to do whatever he wants to do like taking over your mind. Fight back and stop allowing satan to win. The battle has already been won, but it’s up to you to use what God gave us to be equipped and wise until He returns.
Prayer starter to God:
Father, I trust you when you promised that no weapon formed against me shall prosper and I believe the battle has already been won. Lord forgive me for thinking I can go on in my walk with you neglecting to read Your Word as often as I should, I repent and humbly ask that you place a deep desire inside my heart to want more of you. As I began to dig more into Your Word, Lord give me the wisdom, clarity, and understanding I need so that I may be built up with Your armor and apply the Word's teachings to my life...
