If you are a child of God that is truly saved and believe in what Jesus Christ did on the cross to redeem mankind you will agree with me that you have faced attacks that you have not even known how you can explain to others because nobody will believe what you are telling them. “I have given them your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world” (John 17:14).
God did not leave His children powerless, because from the beginning He knew that powers of darkness will always fight against His children. This is why we see in Ephesians 6:12 that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. This means that we are not fighting with humans; however, the devil often uses human beings to accomplish his tasks. These powers can never be defeated within our own capabilities and that is why Ephesians 6:13 tells us to take unto us the whole armor of God that we may be able to withstand in the evil day.
The enemy knows those that serve God with all their heart and in most cases those are the ones that are targeted for attacks weaken their faith or completely lose their salvation as they know that those that are not saved belongs to him already.
This is why it is important to always be strong in the spirit, which can be accomplished by reading the word of God, praising and worshipping God with all our hearts and making sure that we are not opening doors to spiritual attacks.
If you look at the story of Samson, you will notice that the philistines fought and used his wife to get to the root of his power which was actually his hair. The moment they got to the root of his secret, they shaved his hair and removed his eyes so that he could not see. This is the same with us now, the enemy will not attack without first attacking your spiritual life so that you cannot really see anything wrong when you prayer life starts to deteriorate. When the devil knows that the mission has been accomplished and can no longer see the fire that was in you, that is now the time they will send their missiles because they know that the hedge of protection is no longer there, and the fire that used to scare them is no longer there. This can be prevented by living a Holy life, not opening any doors to the enemy for the enemy is also clever and has his own tactics to make you his.
In everything, remember that God did not live us powerless; we have the Holy Spirit that will help us in all situations as the powers that we are fighting with are too strong. It is only the power of God and the Holy Spirit that can destroy the powers of darkness. All that is requested of us is to be strong in the spirit.
Remember that we have the High Priest, Jesus Christ who is sitting on the right hand side of the father who has been given power, and at the mention of His name, every knee has to bow down for we believe that any power that is fighting God’s children is not fighting His children but God Himself. “No weapon that is formed against us shall prosper” (Isaiah 54:17)Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
