Fight or Flight
“No temptation has overtaken you accept what is common to mankind. God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." I Corinthians 10:13
“It is a very human and natural response to fear the unknown. For a believer to keep himself in the dark about Satan’s person and work is a dangerous mistake."
You’ve been marked and labeled in the spiritual world just by virtue of your birth. If you claim the family name Christian, you are being hunted to be destroyed. And yet a lot of us are denying this dance to the death even exists. We have heard of the battle and may even be aware of it to some extent, but it’s all too little for practical effect. We’ve been duped and made to forget that. In reality a God’s man can actually turn the tables on evil and send the hunter packing. It’s all a matter of perceiving the spiritual reality and understanding the source of authority.
I for one am loathed to take on that reputation of dancing with the devil. I trust you’re with me. Satan knows who you are. Get that. Then as every God’s man must do on a more urgent basis, we need to accept what that means. Thank God right now for the choice and will he has given you, to choose his power over yours.
Father God you have blessed me with the gifts of the Spirit and the power and will to use them. Keep this in the forefront of my mind.
