CAUTION: WARFARE IN PROGRESS
You do not have to be sent to the Middle East to be in a war. Our war here is not one of gunfire, bombs, and people being killed but it is a battle for our very souls. It is called "spiritual warfare".
Each and every day you wake up, the enemy, Satan, is there with his puny tricks trying to throw you off the course God had for you. His devices are subtle at times. If they weren't how else would people fall into his trap? 2 Corinthians 11:14(NIV) refers to him as an "angel of light masquerading". In other words he wears a "mask" to fool humans into falling for his schemes.
We do not have to be deceived. Get up each day and pray and read God's word and put on your spiritual armor which is discussed in Ephesians 6:10-18. Take a moment and read it. This describes this "war" going on and how we are to stand up and fight.
PRAYER:There is a battle of right and wrong and good and evil going on and has been since Adam and Eve. I choose to stand up and rebuke Satan and fight him every day with the word of God. According to Isaiah 55:17 "no weapon formed against me shall prosper" and I stand on that promise. In Jesus' name. Amen
