Ephesians 6:12 – For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Even those who don’t believe in God often recognize there is a spiritual side to our being. We are reminded time and again in the word of God that there is a spiritual war going on behind the curtains. It is definitely becoming more prevalent as we look around in our daily lives whether through politics, cultural norms, injustices, lawlessness and even in our personal devices. Are we trying to fight this evil with self righteous comments on social media, thinking who we vote for is going to be our answer, or thinking that if we do enough good we can turn the tide?
Maybe we are just distracting ourselves with recreation to the point we don’t have to think about it?
This is not a war we can win through physical action, this is a spiritual battle. The best way to defeat it is being DAILY in the word of God and in communication with Him, because we are daily being lied to by the enemy, and oh how weak we are! God’s word is the double edged sword! His tree of truth might have weeds growing up around it faster than ever, but the Word will cut down those weeds.
Pray more fervently than ever! We must tap into the power of what is really going on other than this facade that appears before us.
Are you taking time every day to spend time in the bible and pray?
