The battle is not yours but God!!!!
The enemy will try to sneak up on the blind side. Spiritual warfare is real my friends! I’m living in the middle of it right now.
You see when you are trying to do GOD’S work you are inevitably going to be attacked by the enemy.
When I chose to live my life for Jesus and be in ministry I knew all the risks I would face.
I knew that the enemy would be after me. ⠀
I knew people would hate me.⠀
I knew this life would be hard.⠀
I knew I needed to be on guard.
You see following Jesus is hard but totally worth it. You just need to press into Him and stay grounded in the WORD so that you are ready to stand up to this battle.
This brings me back to battles. Because we have God on our side we will win this battle. Surround yourself with God’s Word because that is how we will fight this battle.
I love the song by Bethel Music Surrounded (Fight my Battles)
🎵This is how I fight my battles⠀
It may look like I’m surrounded but I’m surrounded by You 🎵⠀
Be encouraged, my friends! Keep fighting the battles! We are at war!
Jesus will win because He overcame everything.
Before I end this post I’d like to leave you with four practical steps that I have been doing as I am fighting this spiritual warfare battle.
1. PRAY!!!!!! PRAY!!!!!! and PRAY some more. One thing that the enemy hates is when we pray to God. It’s okay to pray out loud. When we speak God’s words out loud it frightens the devil. I encourage you to spend time praying and even writing out your prayers in a journal or notebook. Even typing them out on your phone works.
2. WORSHIP!!!!!! Turn on some worship music and press into Him. There is just something about music that speaks to my soul. I love how I can get lost in worship and the presence of my Savior. When we start to praise and worship Him it will change our perspective. The enemy hates when we praise our God. Praise God more even when you feel like you got nothing left.
3. GET IN THE WORD!!!! Open up your Bible and start reading! You see the Bible is our guidebook for life. It has all the answers to our questions in it. All we got to do is read it and put it into practice. God’s Word is powerful. I encourage you to start reading when you feel like the devil is attacking you.
4. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH GODLY PEOPLE!!!!! This last one is important. Surround yourself with people who love God just as much as you do. Ask them to pray for you and with you when you feel under attack. The Bible says in Matthew 18:20 when two or more are gathered in my name I am there with them. I am blessed to have Godly friends in my life who walk alongside me when I’m struggling.
You see my friends this is just part of the way I fight Spiritual Warfare. I know the enemy hates me because I am living life for God. Even though I am constantly being attacked I will not give in for I know that the battle is already won. He will fight my battles!
Be encouraged, my friends! You are not alone. I am praying for each and every one of you that reads or follows me. God knows and hears the cry of our hearts. We will get through this in time.
Blessings, Grace Mae ❤
