Be Careful Of These Signs Of Spiritual Attacks

one way the enemy attacks a believer's life is through despair depression and discouragement when paul wrote his second letter to the church of corinth he had endured horrific events three shipwrecks he survived the stoning endured five lashings frequent imprisonments and three beatings all of this was enough for paul to fall into depression and despair this was enough for paul to be left discouraged under such pressure many christians would have fallen into a pit of despair but i want you to see what the bible says in second corinthians 4 verse 8 to 9. we are hard-pressed on every side but not crushed perplexed but not in despair persecuted but not abandoned struck down but not destroyed we may face battles and attacks in this world but we can trust in our mighty god to be our shelter through it all in these times when we're tossed to and fro through the waves of adversity this is when we should gear ourselves up to fight this is the time that we have to pray fast and study god's word in order to find peace in the midst of it so during those seasons in those moments when we feel overwhelmingly discouraged and without any strength to keep going this is the time that we must call out to god this is the time that we must seek strength from the lord this is the time that we must cling on to the power of the holy ghost second corinthians chapter 10 verse 3 to 5 says for though we walk in the flesh we do not war according to the flesh for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in god for pulling down strongholds casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of god bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of christ this is one of those passages of scripture that really puts things into perspective the bible is telling us here that although we live in this world we do not and we should not fight our battles like the world in fact the weapons that we have available to us aren't physical weapons but note how the bible says for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in god the weapons we can access as children of god have divine power they are weapons unlike anything in this world because they are heavenly weapons and at the mention of the word weapons people usually think of the physical weapons in this world like a bat or a gun however the bible says in hebrews chapter 4 verse 12 for the word of god is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword piercing even to the division of soul and spirit and of joints and and marrow a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart the word of god is one of the weapons that we have as children of god it's a weapon that is powerful and sharper than any two-edged soul the word of god is a weapon that you can use against the devil it's an effective weapon against the devil in fact so what does the bible mean when it says for though we walk in the flesh we do not war according to the flesh as a believer you're not fighting people you're not just fighting circumstances no you're fighting the spirit behind the person the devil behind the situation 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 this is what the bible says in ephesians 6 verse 12. so here's what i am encouraging you to do today pray for victory in all areas of your life declare god's promises in all areas of your life believe that there is power in the name of jesus christ there is power in god's word and through his spirit when we pray we can be confident that the lord is always near to those who seek and call on him believe that god will break every plan of the enemy trust that the lord will have the final say in all matters concerning you the conflicts you face the battles you face the lord has the final say over all of that so i encourage you people of god to trust god trust in the word of the lord trust in his promises and you will have the victory for what is normal to the world tends to go hand in hand with what is sin the amplified translation of romans 12 verse 2 gives a detailed account of what we need as the children of god the bible says and do not be conformed to this world any longer with its superficial values and customs but be transformed and progressively changed as you mature spiritually by the renewing of your mind focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes so that you may prove for yourselves what the will of god is that which is good and acceptable and perfect in his plan and purpose for you in other words stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you don't allow the world to mold you in its own image the key for us as believers is that we are to be inwardly transformed by the holy spirit [Music] and it's when you allow the holy spirit to transform you to transform your mind and how you think it's only then that you will discern god's will the key is the holy spirit the holy spirit will help you to eliminate disobedience it's the holy spirit who will bring a total reformation of how you think and once this happens once you allow the holy ghost to move within you righteousness will be what you pursue jesus christ is who you will desire and the kingdom of god is what you'll become passionate about [Music] [Music] you
