Recognize your opponent and focus on that, instead of always looking at the circumstances and others as the cause of your misery.  It is Satan and his demons that influence others to act the way they act at times. I have learned through the years, that my battles are fought on my knees.  It’s a waste of time and energy to fight on your own strength and abilities, when it comes to spiritual warfare.  When you fight like that, you find yourself feeling weary, overwhelmed and deflated of all your joy and strength.

Another way you fight the good fight of faith, is to study God’s word.  We have to use the word and proclaim the promises of God when we are warring.  Memorize and speak the word out loud.  It has power and will shake demons to the core.  They hate the word as much, or even more than they hate the prayer of God.

When you pray, do it with all your heart and soul.  Warring in prayer is critical in our walk with God.  It is called proclaiming and decreeing and standing firm on the word.

Call it out for what it is; for example, if it’s anger, blind anger in Jesus Name.  If it’s thoughts of murder or strive than look up the scriptures and cast it out in the name of Jesus.  If it’s lust and thoughts of adultery than call it out for what it is and blind it in the name of Jesus.

Don’t just sit there like a sitting duck and allow Satan to have a field day with your mind and emotions.  Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and fight in Jesus Name.  Call it out, it is what it is my friend.  It’s spiritual warfare.

This fight is not for the faint hearted, it is for soldiers that will stand up and pray, read and use the weapons God has given us to proclaim our victory over our enemies.

Smile Jesus loves you.

Ephesians 6:10-19

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might (not your might) . 11 Put on the whole armorer of  God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against rulers of the darkness of this world against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto y0u the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  14 Stand therefore, having your loins about with truth. (your mind filled with the word) and having the breastplate of righteousness (living right) 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. (your walking where God wants you to walk); 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. (faith in God is going to give you the strength to fight) And the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; 

Need I say more?

Till next time!
