Today’s challenge – Strategy
I have a picture in my mind of putting on the armor of Ephesians 6, raising my sword so that the blade is pointed straight up into the sky, bellowing a battle cry that would shake the ground beneath my feet, and then running to fight my enemy. What? Wait a minute…I think I’m supposed to be following someone. Where did everyone go? I think I better lower my sword and find out where my Master is…maybe I should attend the strategy sessions going on over there where everyone else is gathered.
Now that my eyes have been opened by the belt of Truth…now that I have realized fighting this war is a group effort, not an act of one lone warrior…now that I have settled down after “seeing” the battle in the spiritual realm…now it’s time to join the rest of my unit in understanding the strategies of our enemy.
Our enemy has been fighting this battle for thousands of years. His strategies were formed generations ago and he’s reaping the destruction of seeds planted before I was born. My Bible study group is studying Gideon by Priscilla Shrier and I am learning a great deal about the strategy of my enemy. The first thing to realize is that we’re experiencing either the victory or defeat of our family line.
Take some time and find out what battle you’re fighting!
