Ephesians 6:12

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Here in this verse, Paul reminds us of the unseen spiritual war that we rarely, if ever, discuss or even acknowledge. Can you feel it? Have your eyes opened to the understanding that this world, your life, is a battlefield, and you are the collateral damage in Satan’s war against God?

Satan hates you simply because God loves you so very much. God’s love for you is limitless, stretching beyond your ability to fathom the scope of His plans for your good. But beware, Satan is planning your demise. He has you in his crosshairs because every soul taken in battle is one less threat standing in the way of his imagined victory. Satan’s goal is to inflict as much pain and damage to God’s heart as demonically possible, and to that end, your destruction injures the heart of God.

In conventional warfare, the goal is straightforward: defeat the enemy. The plan of attack is clear. First, create an element of surprise. Second, aim well, inflicting heavy losses. Third, weaken the opposition’s ranks. Fourth, sustain the assault until the enemy either surrenders, is destroyed, or no longer presents a threat to your objective. Satan’s strategy is no less calculated.

Christian, never underestimate the strength or willpower of your adversary. Watch your step, for the way is rigged with pitfalls. Keep your eyes fixed on your Commander in Chief. And, in a world determined to run from God, run straight to the One who will rescue you and guide you to your secure destination.

Awaiting His Return,
