Are You Prepared for Your Daily Spiritual Battle?

Put on the whole armor of God so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.
— Ephesians 6:11

The greatest day in my life was the day I put my faith in Jesus Christ and I’m sure most of you feel the same way.  And as we grow in our faith and knowledge of what God did for us, we become more aware of how significant that day really was. Think about it, that was the day when we had our eternal address changed from a place called hell to a place called heaven. That was the day when we turned from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. That was the day when, according to Jesus, there was a party in heaven given in our honor—a victory shout, if you will, from the angels and from those who have gone before us.

That was also the day when a very real spiritual battle began. In fact, it has been said that conversion has made our hearts a battlefield. Just as surely as there is a God who loves you, there is also a devil who hates you—a devil who wants to stop the work God is doing in your life.

The people I get so irritated at are the Christian pacifist or at least they call themselves Christians. If you want to be a spiritual pacifist, then you are going down big time. You will have to toughen up and put on the armor of God, because in this spiritual battle, you are either advancing or retreating. You are either winning or losing. So, you must fight to win. And it is a battle that can be won, if you march with Jesus.  Just remember, your heart is the battle field.  God Bless!
