The enemy is not fighting you because you are weak. He is fighting you because you are strong. –

There is a spiritual battle raging around us, every day of our lives. Satan is constantly attacking us, hurling lies, and trying to distract us from the plans God has for us. He doesn’t want us to be who God made us to be, to step into our calling, or stand up for what’s right. He knows if he can keep us down – thinking we’re incapable, inadequate, unattractive, unworthy, and unwanted – he wins. But we are not helpless or hopeless. God has given us the authority to say we won’t take it. Not for ourselves, and not for our spouses, children, families, or friends. God’s promise for us is that when we resist the devil, he must flee. But too often, we might just think about resisting while actually staying passive.

God is telling us to act and to fight.

Think about it this way: If someone were to sneak up behind you and attack, you wouldn’t stay quiet and let them hurt you. You would fight back yelling, kicking, hitting and screaming. Fighting a spiritual battle isn’t any different. You must do everything you can to resist the attack.

God has given us multiple weapons to fight the enemy. Taking our thoughts captive, worship, prayer, and staying involved in Christian community. The best weapon God gave us is the Bible.
So, stand confident on God’s promise and that he has already won the war.

And to ask him to show you how to fight.

1 Peter 5:8–9
Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him and be strong in your faith. Remember that your family of believers all over the world is going through the same kind of suffering you are, so humble yourselves before God, Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
