Good Morning, Mighty Woman of God. The Lord has an awesome message for you today. If you really study this message and let it permeated through your heart and mind, you will have gained knowledge that the devil never wants you to know.
(Ephesians 6:10-12), Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 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.
Apostle Paul is the author of most of the New Testament of the bible. Here is Paul reminded us saints of God as to what we should be watching out for when it comes to spiritual warfare. Now, I do realize that not every denomination/church teaches on spiritual warfare. In my opinion, you cannot survive spiritually if you do not have knowledge of the Holy Spirits work or the enemy. Ephesians Chapter 6 is very important for you because Paul explains how to be on constant guard over your soul.
The first thing that Paul wants us to know is that no matter what challenges and adversities that you face on a day to day basis, he says finally, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His mighty. After you have done all you can, be strong and rely on the Lord strength to pull you through your stressful moments. The second thing, the Lord wants you to do, while you are going through your trial is to put on the whole armour of God. Without the whole armour of God you will not be able to stand against the devils weapons. You cannot stand on your own strength so you need to put on the armour of God. Imagine yourself in battle without armour. Your enemy has everything that he needs to defeat you, but you have shown up for a fight without armour or a weapon. You will lose.
Mighty woman of God, when you are going through a challenging time or when things look despair to you, look closely at what you are facing. If you are going through a tough time in your household, whether is it your spouse or children, you need to remember that you are not battling against them. Paul is saying that you need to understand that you are not wrestling against flesh and blood. What this means is that when you are fighting against a persons flesh you will not get anywhere with them. This is a spiritual battle and you are fighting against the demonic spirit that is on that person. No, this does not mean that the person or persons are possessed, it means that a demonic spirit is trying to get to you. We wrestle against Satan's angels of darkness. Those are the principalities that Paul is describing. The ruler of this world is not Jesus Christ. The ruler of this world is Satan. Satan will continue to be ruler of this world until Jesus Christ comes back for His bride (the saints).
Why you? Why Not? God is not the only one that knows what your spiritual gifts are or what they can do to the enemies kingdom. The devil is well aware of your spiritual gifts, that is a big part of why you seem to be going through so much havoc in your life. If the devil can keep you focusing on the Why me . . . he will keep you from the full knowledge of how to use your spiritual gift to be victorious over him. The term, "new levels, new devils", is very true. The closer you get to Christ, the closer you are to defeating the devil. His tactic is once you overcome one of his angels, he will send a more powerful one, and again and again. That is one of the reasons why it seems to you that once you get over one hump, here's comes another one. It's because of your spiritual gift that the Holy Spirit has placed on the inside of you. That is why it is so important for you to know what particular demonic spirit you are battling at all times.
If your life seems to be in constant turmoil, that's a good thing. Continue to be strong in the Lord and His power and you will not even notice when you have been under attack. If you household seems to be in chaos, don't take it out on the person because you are not dealing with their flesh and blood. You are dealing with principalities of darkness. Pray to God and ask Him to reveal to you what particular demonic spirit that you are dealing with and He will give you the answer. Ask the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and knowledge as to how to pray for that person, your finances or any other area in your life where the devil is attacking you. One more thing, if the devil ain't bothering you then you are not a threat to him. You need to be a threat to him. The more of a threat that you are to him, the more devils he sends your way. So glorify God in the midst of your trial and you will come out victorious. WHY ME? It's because of the Holy Spirit within you. Amen!
I pray that this message has been of some help to you, as you are on your spiritual journey with the Lord. Tomorrow, I will go through the whole armour of God. We are going to get dress and be ready for those principalities. GOD BLESS YOU!
