Don't Lose Sight of the Real Enemy - Battle Strategies

Battle Ready

It is dangerous to go into battle and then end up fighting the wrong enemy. As a matter of fact, it could cost you the battle. That is true in life too. 

We as believers must not be blind to the enemy's strategy to deflect our attention and point us in the wrong direction. As we do this thing we call life, we mustn't lose sight of the real enemy.
 
So many times, we can get caught up in what people are doing and the latest newscast that we forget that satan and his demons are in play and the real culprits at the root of all evil. When we do this, it gives the enemy an opening to cause havoc in our minds. If he can get you to believe that he is not the culprit, but it's who you see in front of you, he can distort your whole reality.
 

The world is already captured, so the sons and daughters of God must be ever so diligent in staying free. We have a calling to let our light shine so that others may see and our Father in Heavens be glorified. This is a reminder for us believers to stay sharp! Delighting ourselves in the word and in the presence of God no matter what we may see going on around us.

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. - 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

 

Pray These

Use your voice and the word of God to defeat the lies of the enemy in Jesus' name.

  • Lord, show me areas of my life where I have believed the lies of the enemy.
  • I come out of agreement with the lies I have believed, and I repent for not taking them captive.
  • I come into agreement with the word of God concerning my life and a stranger's voice I will not follow.
  • My thoughts and opinions are spirit-led based on the word of God and not what I hear or see.
  • I declare that I am steadfast in the word of God and that my salt with never lose its savor.
  • I put on the helmet of Salvation which guards my mind against false thinking and teaching.

I pray that if you are stuck in believing the lies of the enemy, that you will wake up now in Jesus' name! It is not the will of God for you to live life defeated, lethargic and despondent. Take authority over the wiles of the enemy and be seated in your rightful place as a child of God. Shalom!
