Winning the Invisible War

"One Year Bible" New Testament Passage (for Mon., Aug. 27)
II Corinthians 1:12-2:11

lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices. II Corinthians 2:11 (NKJV)

There is an invisible war going on around us that is very real. It is a spiritual battle against an enemy who does not play fair. Most believers operate day-in and day-out unaware of this hidden realm.  As a result we may find ourselves entrenched in continual difficulties that seem to defy normal solution. 

There is a call from God today that we all need to hear. God is telling us to "Wake up and wise up!" Our enemy, the devil, is increasing his assault on the followers of Jesus. He is daily inventing new devices and strategies to entrap and enslave. 

Satan will use any angle, any advantage he can to win the battle over your life. So, here is wisdom that each of us should heed: allow God to address your weak points. Face your battles. Each one of us our own unique set of vulnerabilities. DO NOT ALLOW THE DEVIL TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR WEAKNESSES!

Expressly bring your life under Christ's rule and under His care. If you will do this, God will meet you and help you. Spiritual warfare is a part of our walk with God - and by the power of the Spirit and by the word of His authority, no weapon of the enemy will prevail over you and overcome you. Jesus wins!
