There are unseen battles fought everyday that give victories in our lives. These battles are not physical, but in the heavenly realm. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). The high places in our thoughts, high places on our jobs, high places at our place of worship. Let’s not get it twisted even in church there’s a battle for your soul, warfare continues to try and keep you from God’s divine power.
We are taught in God’s word to be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5: 8). Yet when the deception, misguidings and tricks of the enemy surface we forget our weapons that are to carry with us daily our covering through God’s word so we can be victorious.
Maybe I am the only one who struggles daily to keep my mind focused on God’s promises. The only one who says why me? I mean if I am joint heir by the blood of Jesus, why does it appear that I cannot overcome? Well, it’s because I am focused on me. Not the One who came so that I could live life more abundantly. My fixation is on the problems or the circumstances just as Peter did when he lost focus walking on the water, although he knew Jesus called him. I lose focus and sink into the depths of my own self pity, my own water so to speak, as many do. Our circumstance becomes bigger than our God and our doubt is deeper than the ocean. We’re being entangled to lose faith. But if we recall that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds (2 Corthinans 10:4) we are then, and only then victorious.
Remember that you must put on the whole armour of God, daily. This is the only way to defend that battles in the high places.
Ephesians 6: 11-18, Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand, Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness, and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.
