5. The Spiritual Warfare Season
If you are in a season of spiritual warfare, gird up! If you are being spiritually attacked, you’re doing something right that Satan doesn’t like. But whether or not you’re currently walking faithfully, the enemy will wage war against you. It comes with being a Christian. But don’t be afraid. Remember the story of Job: God is always in complete control.
This is a wonderful thing about being God’s child – He fights for you. You just lean into Him and rely on Him by praying and reading His Word. He will take care of the rest.
This is not a natural battle against flesh and blood (even though it may appear to be).
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms,” Ephesians 6:12.
With this spiritual battle in mind, we must put on our full spiritual armor.
“Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,” Ephesians 6:13-17.
These are our weapons. Let’s not leave them at home and walk into battle alone.
