Waging War

Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)

Dear Father God, I pray that You O Lord will draw my brothers Caleb, Bart, and Mike to You.  Please do not let them leave this earth without the assurance that they will spend eternity with You when they leave.  I pray that they will have their Damascus moment and come face to face with their need for Jesus.

Eternity is at Stake

For it is by grace [God’s remarkable compassion and favor drawing you to Christ] that you have been saved [actually delivered from judgment and given eternal life] through faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [not through your own effort], but it is the [undeserved, gracious] gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8, AMP)

Today, I have to be honest…  the devotional I’m about to write tears my heart apart.  It breaks me inside and causes my eyes to well up with tears.  In fact, writing about it is difficult.  I would love to gloss over it.  I would love to pretend it doesn’t exist.  But I can’t gloss over it and I can’t pretend it doesn’t exist.  Even if acknowledging it hurts!

Storm the Gates of Hell

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does.  The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. (2 Corinthians 10:3-4)

The above verse makes it very clear that we are in a war.  I think we too often forget this.  As Christians, we forget that there is an Enemy out to destroy us.  We forget to prepare for battle daily.  Sometimes we even act as though the war is over.  No matter how much we ignore the war or pretend it doesn’t exist… it still never goes away.

I’m not talking about the war overseas or the wars that men fight.  I’m talking about the war for your soul.  The war for your thoughts.  The war for your God given abilities.  The war for your family.  The war for your marriage.  The war for your health.  Anyone who has decided to give their lives to Christ, stepped into a battle zone.

Thankfully, God has given us the weapons to fight with.  God’s weapons are bigger, better, and badder than the Enemy’s weapons.  It’s time to pack your arsenal with God’s Word and prepare to fight the battles that you face.  Let’s not give the Enemy any more territory in our lives.  Let’s claim what is rightfully ours in Jesus Christ and move forward with a battle plan.

This week, I will be diving into this subject.  I will be praying that God gives me the words to speak, to teach you how to fight in this battle and come out victorious.  May we stand together and become aware of the Enemy’s attacks.
