BLOG 95 THE BATTLE

BLOG 95 THE BATTLE
THINK ABOUT THIS:
Prayer is the battle.” Is it difficult to take the time to pray? Because of all the distractions, I believe that it is! Prayer is talking to our Heavenly Father, and this is something that our enemy does not want us to do! The devil doesn’t want us to have the knowledge of the power that is in prayer. We must be determined to take time every day to use the Sword of the Spirit.” The “Sword of the Spirit” is the Word of God. See Ephesians 6:10-18. “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Prayer is part of our battle armor. A most important part, because PRAYER IS THE BATTLE. Most people do not sit still very long these days. If they do-they are texting their friends on their phones! Texting and social media is a very big distraction, and it is a waste of our valuable time.
Being connected to Yahweh in prayer is essential for our well being. In fact, it’s one of the most important things that we can do. Prayer is the “power of Yahweh’s might.” As His children, we must be very disciplined in a continual battle against the forces of evil. First, we must be aware that we are in a battle as we pray and speak Yahweh’s Word. The Word of God is spirit and it is life. Jesus tells us in John 6:63. This is one of the reasons that the devil wants to keep us distracted by other things. Yahweh God’s Word is supernatural. Hebrews 4:12 He watches over His word to perform it. Jeremiah 1:12 Yahweh’s Word never returns void. Isaiah 55:11  He backs up His Word from heaven that we decree here on earth. Job 22:28 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh (according to the flesh). 2Corinthians10:3 In the flesh (the body), one fights with guns and bullets. But we are in a spiritual battle, one that can not be seen with the physical eyes, yet the effects of it are seen all around us. Hebrews 11:3 Bullets will not harm the devil and his demons, but the Word of God is powerful against them. He desires to steal the Word from Yahweh’s children, and tries to make it seem unimportant. The devil knows the value of the Word because Jesus, the living Word, defeated him at the cross, putting him to open shame. Colossians 2:15  We are using the “Sword of the Spirit” (Word of God) against evil!
Young and old, alike play imagery games like “World of War Craft,” “Halo,” and “Dungeons and Dragons” on the internet. They spend hours playing these games (I am sure there are many more). What if they were taught about the real games that satan plays that leads to destruction! His tactics are to steal, to kill, and to destroy. John 10:10 The devil is very serious about what he does because of his hatred of Yahweh and His people. He uses amusement to distract. Amusement means “without thinking.” People get so caught up in what they are doing that they are unaware of what the enemy is up to. While we are working hard at enjoying ourselves, the devil is hard at work destroying us! We are to take Yahweh God’s Word seriously. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.” 2Corinthians10:4 Yahweh says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6 Most are undisciplined and carnal and live by their senses! But when people put off their lives and choose to walk closely with their Father, they are shown His supernatural workings! There is so much more that I could say about this, but that is for another blog.
This is faith cabin saying bye for now. Be blessed, love and smiles.
