For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.
--2 Corinthians 10:3-4
So many Christians, I believe, don’t really understand the reality of the evil forces at work to undermine their walk with Christ.
First, we must recognize the reality of the spiritual forces that are at work against us. Friend, you are a target of the enemy forces who want nothing more than to see you fail in your Christian walk!
And you ignore their work in your life to your spiritual peril.
And second, you must live in the victory of Jesus Christ over those forces. His power is in you and me… in the words that we speak and in the message that we declare.
In Matthew 28:18, Jesus says, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” This means that Jesus has ultimate power over Satan and his demonic forces.
So my challenge to you today is to live in light of the evil spiritual forces at work against you to ruin your life. And as you do this, claim the victory that is yours in Christ Jesus our Lord over those forces!
AS A BELIEVER, YOU ARE A TARGET OF THE ENEMY FORCES WHO WANT NOTHING MORE THAN TO SEE YOU FAIL IN YOUR CHRISTIAN WALK!
