Is spiritual war a part of your everyday life? Do you recognize when spiritual war is coming against you? Do you know where spiritual war begins? Spiritual war can be anything that prevents you from becoming who God intends you to be. When you love something, do you protect it? Do you stand firm no matter what? It is wonderful to feel the joy and love of God and share it with others. But you grow with God from your first breath each day where the war for you to become what you are created for exists.
By embracing spiritual war in this world you do not allow any influence to waver your faith, belief, or love. You choose to eliminate all things that come up against you (your thoughts, language, people, behaviors, environments, etc.) that prevent you from what God has planned for you. It is speaking and acting in specific ways, creating environments that draw others to you and not you to them so they can have what you have. You are following a path that was created just for you and not for the world. Does any of this sound familiar? It should… This is the war you must embrace as Jesus did for us if you truly are in his image every minute of your life.
Ephesians 6:13 ESV – Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
