We pray that you may be aware of, and stand firm against, the forces waging war against you! Know your battle! Three forces wage war against the believer
We pray that you may be aware of, and stand firm against, the forces waging war against you!
Know your battle!
Three forces wage war against the believer:
The Flesh: The sinful nature wants to do evil (Galatians 5:17).
Solution! Make no provision for it (Romans 13:14). Run from lust and chase/pursue righteousness (1 Timothy 6:10-11, 2 Timothy 2:22, Genesis 39:12); walk in the Spirit (Romans 8:2-8, Galatians 5:16) and be alert in prayer (Matthew 26:41).
The Devil/Satan: Your enemy, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8).
Solution! Resist him firm in your faith and he will run from you! (James 4:7, 1 Peter 5:9). Resist him through proper use of scripture (Matthew 4:1-11, Ephesians 6:17), abiding in Christ (1 John 4:4), and being alert in prayer (1 Peter 5:8, 4:7).
Arm yourself!\ (10) A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. (11) Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. (12) For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. (13) Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. (14) Stand your ground… (Ephesians 6:10-18)
