The enemy fears you to be around other people who will encourage you in your walk with God…where your faith and strength will grow in Him. Satan and his minions are very cunning. They will try to mask the spiritual warfare with the fight against flesh…and divide us against each other.
Last week I got in a disagreement with a person…Sitting in the corner of my room, racking my brain as to what I did wrong and how did this touchy verbal battle began…trying to point out what the offender did wrong and the offender not knowing why. We did not understand each other…until now, when I put pen to paper and asked God to help me work it out. You see, it wasn’t a battle against each other but what the enemy has devised before the disagreement began. The enemy was working on tender points of my past and instead of reminding him of my forgiveness, I wallowed in “self.” I focused on the wrongs of myself instead of God and His forgiveness. I can only imagine how the enemy touched my offender’s mind and heart.
Put on the full armor of God today (Eph. 6) and ask God to reveal to you the war raging behind what we think is a fleshly battle…
“For we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces in heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12
