Victory Day to Day

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”    Ephesians 6:12

We are warriors, yes and we are in a battle daily with Satan and dark forces.  People seem to think we are crazy when they are not aware of the power of God and his presence.  As Christians we face battles everyday.  I looked up battle in the dictionary and here is what it said.

A sustained fight between large, organized armed forces and the verb battle means to

fight or struggle tenaciously to achieve or resist something.
You may ask, why are we battling? Christ died for our sins?  The Devil wants your soul, all of our souls.  Not everyone in the world accepts Christ, their are lost souls out there.  He wants you to stay clear of God, and make you believe that he isn’t real or that you are unworthy.  The enemy has one goal to kill, steal and destroy.  The enemy tries to attack the mind to bring us down.  He lies to us to make you think things that are dark, depressing and UN TRUE!  So many people in the world are being lied to, sin is rampant and there is so much self hate in the world that we cannot love others.  Most of us either self medicate (I did in alcohol for a while), ignore it, or give it power.  Continuing to meditate on the things of the enemy begins a dark work in your life, it can lead to sin and sin leads to more sin and before you know it you forget that you once called yourself a child of God.  God doesn’t forget you, he waits for you and he will be there when you call.  Sometimes he will put situations or people in your life to lead you back.  Satan is the father of lies…

John 8:44

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Once you hear a lie of the enemy or feel temptation to do something that can hinder your walk you must call out the thought and stop the Devil at the start. It is easier when you get to Satan as soon as the thought pops in your mind then festering on it for weeks, or even months.  Some people fester on it for years and it becomes a BIG problem in their lives.  When you think things like “No one loves me, I am ugly, I will never have a good job, I hate myself.”  stop what your doing and say to yourself “STOP!”  “God is working in my life and I am his.”  I know it may sound silly and your thinking, we I will be saying this all day then, DO IT.  The enemy will weaken as you get stronger.  Christianity isn’t easy.  God makes it worth your while and he will win your battles for you if you let him.  We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

The best way to stay in truth is to stay in the word of God, what a better way to counter lies with truth.  Remember that even a mustard seed of faith has the power to move mountains, and once your seed of faith begins to grow you will be blessed.  God is faithful to us and he wants us to be victorious and spend eternity with him.

He hears you and knows the needs of your heart.

With Love,

Her Heart
