It has been “one of those days.” On days like these, I try to remember that my war is not with what is going on, but with my true enemy, Satan, who loves to see me discouraged and angry.
I have discovered a wonderful thing. When I am at my lowest, I read scriptures, or recite (Out Loud) passages I have memorized, and when Jesus’ Name is spoken, the enemy must flee! This demonstrates to me that God will go to battle for me with that Nasty Enemy. As a mother and wife, I find myself in regular spiritual warfare. I see clearly that Satan wants to enlist all of our children for his evil army. The way he disarms me is to discourage me. But when I call on my God to strengthen me, He does! I have memorized the verse above from Ephesians (se below) to protect me and my loved ones in the heat of the battle.
**We MUST pray that the LORD will protect our children from the enemy’s lies and traps. May they be Mighty Warriors for JESUS.
- “For our struggle is NOT against flesh and blood,
- but against the rulers, against the powers,
- against the world forces of this darkness,
- against the spiritual forces of wickedness
- in the heavenly places.”
- (Ephesians 6:12)
