Who Are We Really Fighting?

How is your Holiday going so far?  Have you gotten into any arguments yet?  Has your stress level reached a crescendo?  Is your temper too short to keep in-control right now?  Well, please realize this.  We have an enemy that would like nothing more than to cause strife, stress and arguments this Holiday season.  Our enemy would love to get the focus off of our Savior, Jesus Christ and onto our selfish desires.  Satan is our enemy and he has been studying human behavior for 1000’s of years – he knows our weaknesses and our trigger buttons.  He knows how to push us just right so that we are on the brink of BLOWING UP at the very people we love.

So, this Holiday season, as the stress level in your life starts to increase, remember that we have an enemy who loves to speak into our mind lies.  Our fight is not with each other, it is a spiritual fight.  Take a moment and pray a blessing on the person you are in conflict with and realize Satan is probably working overtime on your thought life.

Spiritual Battle

 

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 (NASB95)
