“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.
I’m posting today to ask my readers to keep me and my family in prayer. I’ve heard it said that you can tell how effective your walk is by whether or not you’re under attack. For a while now the enemy has been very comfortable with my walk, much to my shame. I’ve been struggling with some issues and I guess he spotted my resolve and maybe decided to attack before victory could be had. I received news today that rocked my world, robbing me of something very precious to me. I’m sorry if I’m being cryptic, but giving out details now will only cause more harm than good.
If there is any good news in this, it’s that the enemy has already lost. While I’m in pain, I will overcome because as Philippians 4:13 says; “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” My resolve to finish well has only been further set – my course will be straight, my focus sharp. As the line in the worship song at church today said, “my hope is in the Lord”. I will put on the armor of God every day, and if I don’t finish with a few dents and dings then I didn’t live this Christian life to the fullest.
