Memory Monday – Week 79

Spiritual warfare is something so present, but not discussed enough. The reality is that we are all in a spiritual battle and unless we are aware of that fact and prep ourselves then we will be defeated by the enemy! Ephesians 6:12 says, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”  The battle is NOT against each other, but against the evil forces of this world. 

The enemy will do anything to attack us. He comes to kill, steal, and destroy. For Christians, we are assured victory because of Jesus. The enemy was already defeated when Jesus rose from the dead and because of that NO weapon formed against us will prosper. But, because satan is constantly attacking, we must engage and use supernatural power given by the Holy Spirit to defeat him.

Remember, the struggle isn’t against each other, or against the Lord, but the enemy. The verses following 6:12 talk about how to prepare for the battle: by putting on the full armor of God. We have been given the tools to defeat the lies and attacks, but it is up to us to use them. Prepare yourselves daily for the battle that lies ahead.

    This is so true and this is actually often the verse I use when people ask how I can’t be mad or upset at the decisions Goldilocks’s mom makes. I remind them that we are not fighting against flesh and blood but against the enemy…and so I can’t be mad at her momma…but rather at the one who is behind it. And that his Satan.

    Thanks for this verse sugars!!

    This is a good word, Caroline. I once heard a preacher say that if we could pull back the curtain and take a glimpse into what is really going on in the spirit world, we would really be surprised to see what is happening (something along that line). You can just sense the powers of darkness surrounding and fighting, so, as you said, we need to keep our armor on at all times. We are more than conquerors through Him Who loves us! And greater is He that is in us than ALL the forces that are in this world! This was very edifying. Thank you for sharing!

    It really makes your heart stop to take a moment & think about this … visualize it… give me Jesus when those scary things come to mind.

    Such a good reminder, Caroline! I have to remember that it’s not against others often!

    Amen and amen! With our ministry picking up pace, Hunter and I can feel that enemy weighing down and against us. We’re so lucky to have a friend in Jesus to guide us through those times!

    Oh wow Caroline. I was in the trenches today. I feel grieved because I got really, really angry with God. I realized immediately my anger was unfounded and misdirected, but reading this you confirmed where my heart and mind need to be.

    Thank you once again for blessing me with words that heal and build up.
