We are in a war. “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.” It’s one thing to know and see who you’re fighting against, but we can’t see them. It’s forces and powers of the evil world, the world Satan is ruler. In order to understand our enemy and the way he works, we only need to read the Bible and see how Satan worked in the past. We can also watch television and listen to the media that tells us what is happening in the world. Enemy wants to destroy everything God began and is working on; all things related to purity, honesty, loyalty, and goodness.
Good news is that God gives us weapons to fight the enemy. The Armor of God contains six pieces that protect every part of our body. We fight with all the weapons God gives us but also realize that God has already defeated the enemy. God will protect us while we are here fighting the good fight of faith. David cried out in Psalm 64:1 “Hear me, my God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy”. 2 Timothy 3:12-14 “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and imposters will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
Don’t fret, God’s got your back!
