Know your enemy.
For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the Principalities and the Powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness on high.Ephesians 6:12
Scripture speaks of our ongoing battles with the world, the flesh, and the Devil. Many of us today, regard the Devil as a superstition so we don’t know this enemy and his strategies to bring us down. Once we recognize the Enemy’s activity, there are resources to combat him. Although many of our struggles with the flesh and the world may not be provoked by the Devil’s interference, he certainly takes advantage of those struggles and seeks by way of them to establish a stronger presence in our lives.
Anxiety, worry, and depression are an epidemic in our western world. A complex disease based on biological, psychological, and social factors; it is exacerbated by the way set up our lives to be disconnected. The Devil preys on these struggles trying to drag us down.
Today, I will turn to the Holy Spirit for the gift of peace rather than feed my anxiety and worry.
