“I am sending you out like sheep surrounded by wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” Matthew 10:16 NET Bible
The enemy of our souls is real. The Father of Lies has wanted to deceive and disturb, confuse and kill since those poisonous words were first uttered in the Garden.
There is a supernatural battle going on all around us. We often cannot see it with our eyes, but instead feel it with our spirit. It is just as real as you and I. Don’t be fooled and lulled into a sense of apathy.
11Put on the full armor of God, so that you can make your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,but against the rulers,against the authorities,against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore take up the full armor of God so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground…. Ephesians 6:11-13
Are you ready for spiritual warfare? Satan comes to kill and destroy. Do you have people in your life that you are willing to storm the gates of Hell, for?
*A child that turned his back on you and your beliefs?
*A marriage that is on the rocks? Trust destroyed?
*A loved one who is in the clutches of alcohol or drug abuse?
*Someone who feels suicide is the only way out of a situation?
*You or someone you know who is eaten up with guilt or self-hatred over a secret sin?
*Guilt and pain from abortion? Constant reminders of the child that was never born?
*Health Issues? Pain?
*Lives torn apart through a divorce?
*Anger….hatred…..words that cut like a knife?
We are all dealing with things, or know someone who is. Prayer is powerful. It is not “the last resort”, as some would believe, but is instead direct communication with God Himself.
Things change when people pray. Your words uttered in private are heard. They are not forgotten, nor disregarded.
Suit up. Get ready for battle.
