No Interest or Just No Stomach
“I have fought the good fight. I have completed the race. I have kept the faith.” 2Timothy 4:7
We will have struck a deep blow to our enemy if our concept of the spiritual battle moves forcefully from being an afterthought to a way to believe and behave. Based on the attitudes I encounter in men worldwide regarding evil, I would want us as an opponent if I were Satan.
The painful, sad reality is that the underworld has the upper hand on the ground level of this war with God’s men. Many times we assume the submissive position of a scared pooch, or freely give permission (by our inaction) to evil to trample over our lives and the world with impunity.
A reality check is in order. It’s time to look in the mirror and not be satisfied with what we have become in the midst of the Great War for our King. We must make peace with the fact that we are spiritually enabled, empowered, and equipped to make war on the Enemy and do something. We are commissioned to inflict losses, unmask and thwart plots to kill, and deliver those in bondage to darkness into the freedom of the sons of light.
Satan knows who you are. Get that. That’s what every God’s man must do on a more urgent basis; you need to accept what that means. What’s that you say? Simple, you cannot ask for a hall pass to get out of this fight. You must also stop living in ignorance and denial. Instead, you need to understand and get to know Satan’s ways. Why? Because, you are to be feared not laughed at.
Father God, You have supplied all that I need to return the love you have shown to me. You are amazing.
