For some, there is a spiritual battle brewing around you - and for others, there is a battle raging around you right now.
Be aware and be spiritually discerning. Not everything is as it seems. There is more to what’s happening in your life than that which is visible. Angel armies and hell’s hordes are contending for your destiny. Partner with the host of Heaven in fighting for your future through prayer, purity, praise and prophetic proclamations. Press through the resistance, push through the opposition. Don’t give into weariness or weakness. Don’t be derailed, distracted or discouraged. The intensity of the battle shows the destiny which is at stake. If you could only see what God has placed within you and before you, you would fight so much fiercer and contend so much stronger for your future. You are the head, not the tail. You are above, not below. You are royalty, not a pauper. Believe it’s true. Live like it. Fight for it.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand....And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people.”
“No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life....I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them. “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
1 Timothy 6:12
“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
1 Peter 5:8-9
“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”
“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail.“
