Deuteronomy 20:4 “For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”
When we take the time to stop and think and hear from the Holy Spirit, we soon realize that the enemy operates within the boundaries of warfare – the space between your ears! Sure demons may attack you physically with pain and disease, as they did Job, but the real battle for Job as well as us is in the mind, where our spirit and soul reside. Once the enemy attacks, we start to get unsettled and react out of fear and/or emotions rather than act out of the knowledge of God’s Word.
The Bible states that the One, God, living inside us is greater than the one, Satan, living in the world. Satan is the prince of this age and the air, but he is still subject to the will of God and the power of God. One day he will bend the knee before Jesus the Anointed One and declare, “Jesus is LORD!” like the rest of all creation. He is not afforded a by-pass on that one. God is a jealous God and will not share His glory with another being. Thus, Lucifer was kicked out of God’s kingdom for his rebellion.
Don’t let the enemy defeat you in the battlefield of your mind. Know and learn the Word of God that you may be able to stand in the day of battle to wage spiritual warfare against the enemy. Put on the whole armor of God: helmet of salvation, flak jacket of righteousness, utility belt of truth, combat boots of the gospel of peace, armor of faith, the sword of the Spirit (your Bible) and most importantly the word of prayer. When you take salvation, righteousness, truth, peace, faith, and the Word of God into battle, you take God along with you. All of these things are from God and are God. It is only through Him that victory over the enemy and any trial/tribulation comes!
