Are you equipped for battle? Spiritual battle can be demanding, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing! The enemy is powerful, but compared to God, he doesn’t compare in the slightest. When we fully utilize God’s Word and His truth, we can properly defend ourselves from even the most vicious attack from the enemy!
The enemy often tries to attack us by flooding us with doubt and anxiety about God’s truth. To resist His attacks, we have to maintain our footing in God’s Word! We have to maintain our mindset of God’s truth. It isn’t enough to do this once—spiritual warfare is a constant, consistent struggle! But how do we go about maintaining our footing in God’s truth?
We have to strive to be spiritually minded! We can do this by practicing spiritual disciplines such as prayer and time in God’s Word. When we invest time and effort into correcting our mindset and focusing on God and His truth, we are immune to the enemy’s attacks!
We have to remember that spiritual warfare is constant and ongoing. We should always be preparing for attacks, and rooting ourselves in God and His Word, even if times are good! When we come to realize that we are made whole through Jesus’ perfections, we begin to rely on Him, and we can begin to have peace!
