Do you even realize that the problems that we have with people are not flesh to flesh? OK what am I talking about? Well sometimes the conflicts we have with people are not exactly “personality conflicts”. Maybe that is an easier and more acceptable way to label it, but the truth is that sometimes it could just as well be conflicting spirits! I am going to start a short series on “Spiritual Warfare”. What I would like to do is explore exactly what that means and what it entails.
If you are new to Christ this may seem a little overwhelming and that’s understandable. Also know that if you are new to Christ this will quickly become a part of your life. Let me just say that once the enemy realizes that he no longer has any reign over your life, he becomes upset. The bible tells us in JOB that he roams the earth to and fro seeking whom he may devour! What does that mean to you? It means that he is waiting for you to leave the window cracked or the back door open! He is waiting for his opportunity when your guard is down so he may come in and distract you from the glory of the Lord and all of God’s promises!
So how do you keep that from happening? You prepare for spiritual warfare! You mount up! Place on your holy armor of God, and with your sword (the bible) in hand prepare for battle! Say the following out loud and with conviction: I have declared today a day of peace! This is the day that the LORD has made! I speak peace into my situation and believe that NO weapon formed against me shall prosper! Today has already been ordained by GOD and nothing will take place without HIS approval! The blood of Jesus will cover and protect me, and the GOD in me will reflect on the outside as HIS love pours in! I am Blessed! I am Anointed! I am Appointed! Amen!
