Giving up certain inner beachheads–spiritual footholds–determines our spiritual destinies time and time again. These footholds are the small but strategic areas of a man’s life that either keep him under the rule of the world–the flesh and the devil–or liberate him spiritually to achieve the next level. Control of these beachheads is critical, which is why the Bible warns us: “Do not give the devil a foothold” (Ephesians 4:27).
The only difference between spiritual warfare and actual warfare is the bloodletting. But lives still get destroyed anyway.
Today I will guard my heart and mind
against the subtleties that would give the
Enemy a foothold.
