We us Christians we have adopted a humanistic view of things and we don’t realize the spiritual implication behind what is happening in our lifes. We must always be keen and note that God has a purpose for anything that happens in your life. You can reflect to the story of Joseph in the book of Genesis, when he is sold with his brothers, the incident that cought Joseph when in potiphar’s house (Gen 39), Joseph is put in prison ( Gen 41:37). I brought Joseph’s story to just help you understand that anything that happens God is having a reason..

Now back to our topic, there is a raging every single day in the spiritual realm. This battle is what I am calling spiritual war. Some of us fight this war without knowing we are in the war. For instance as we always try to over sin, but to do what God wants, that is a spiritual war you are fighting. And as God try’s to bring you near to him and making you righteous through the HolySpirit who our helper and His representative.

On the other side Satan is stealing hearts of people from God. So let’s attribute much of what is happening to circumstances and therefore passively accept what comes your way. Always keep in mind the intense battle that is being waged for your heart every single day.

What we do during our day to day life determines where you belong (either to God or satan), this includes the choices we make, what we speak, the actions we take, what we believe, how we dress and many other that we all know.

The truth is that, satan cannot control you without your will, he cannot do anything without your cooperation and consent {Ephesians 6:10-12} Ephesians 6:10 Finally, build up your strength in union with the Lord and by means of his mighty power. Ephesians 6:11 Put on all the armour that God gives you, so that you will be able to stand up against the Devil’s evil tricks. Ephesians 6:12 For we are not fighting against human beings but against the wicked spiritual forces in the heavenly world, the rulers, authorities, and cosmic powers of this dark age.

But what you need to do is first recognize that you are in a battle, and note that your unwillingness to engage in a battle doesn’t mean that the battle isn’t raging, it just means you’re going to lose, but when you recognize the battle you will take proper action to improve your situation and resist the devil James 4:7 So then, submit to God. Resist the Devil, and he will run away from you.

Brethren to win a spiritual battle is not easy as most of us take it to be. It needs you to be ready to sacrifice yourself for the task, be much hardworking. You need to put on the full armor of God as we are told in the book of Ephesians 6:11.

As I conclude, I want to highlight to you some weapons you need during this war explanation of the same will be done during a later session . And this are as follows : Prayer, Bible or you can call it word of God, Holy Spirit who is our helper, God etc.

Be blessed brethren 🙏
