Ephesians 6:12-13 warns us, " 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 " (KJV, Holy Bible)
Have you ever noticed that you can be going along just fine in life and then BOOM, an unexpected set back or distraction will arise out of, what seems like, nowhere? The enemy likes to put out roadblocks or obstacles for us when he can see we are headed for something great that will allow us to "level up", as I call it. Did you know that we can fight with scripture? It is imperative that we learn how to fight against the darkness, or we can easily be dragged into it! We have to learn the scriptures within the Bible that God gave us to battle with. There are scriptures for strength, faith, casting out demons and keeping them away, breaking generational curses and much more!
Not only do we need these biblical weapons to fight here on Earth, but we need to practice them and train regularly so we can have a spot in God's Army. We must prepare for that final battle between good and evil that will take place at the Mount of Olives called, The Battle of Armageddon!
So, when we get knocked down, we have to get up again and again. We will be stronger for it. If we take the wrong road, it's ok, we just have to hurry back to the right path! Just keep training, keep fighting and NEVER hang up our gloves!
