“Why Me, God?”

“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” (Ephesians 6:12 nlt).

Have you ever been walking with the Lord and doing all the things you think a Christian ought to do, when suddenly you were barraged with spiritual attacks?

You struggled with doubt. You battled temptations. You experienced all kinds of other problems and wondered what horrible sin you committed to bring that upon yourself. What did you do to deserve such a fate? Why did God let that happen to you?

Here’s something to consider: those things may not happen to you because you’re doing something wrong but because you’re doing something right.

Remember Job? The problem was that he had never read the Book of Job. If so, he would have been able to cruise right through the whole thing.

But Job didn’t know how the story ended. All he knew is that one day he had his beautiful family, all kinds of land, servants, and success all around him. And the next day he lost everything in rapid succession.

He lost his children. He lost his possessions. And he lost his health. Maybe he even wished that he’d lost his wife, because in the aftermath she told him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!” (Job 2:9 nkjv).

Everything fell apart. Did this happen because Job was a wicked man? No, it was the very opposite. Job was a godly man, but the Lord allowed the Devil to bring a series of attacks against him.

In time, the story turned out beautifully, and God doubled everything that Job had.

You might be going through a spiritual attack or getting hit with temptation again and again because you’re a threat to the Devil.

Like it or not, the moment we became Christians, we entered into a spiritual battle. So, we have to learn how to fight using the weaponry that God gave us.
