We fight major battles every day! These battles take place on the battlefield of our mind! The Bible tells us that our War is not against people, or places or things, but that it is a spiritual Battle. "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12). Every decision we make is part of that Battle. We war constantly, it is our Spiritual nature verses our Sin Nature. Every moment both of these natures are in contention. We struggle about whether to make decisions that bring glory and pleasure to our God, or that bring glory or pleasure to ourselves. It is so critical that we view situations in our life as parts of that battle. When people act out of character and push your bttons, or situations just don't seem to be in your favor, these are all symptoms of that invisible spiritual battle that happens around us. There is a Cosmic chess match of sorts that goes on Between the heavenly realm and the forces of Satan.
The great thing about his that 1. God has provided us with his Holy Spirit for guidance and power( Acts 4:31),he has given his Angels charge over us, (luke 4:10) and God has told us that All Things work together for good, to them that love God, and to them that are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28).
When we remain in the battle and rely on God to guide and protect us, we have nothing to fear. And we know in the end that God will always triumph, and we will gain valuable experience and growth from every battle we fight!
