The Enemy's Trap

For our struggle is NOT against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against

the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenlyplaces.”
(Ephesians 6:12)
It has been “one of those days.” On days like these, I try to remember that my war is not with what is going on, but with my true enemy, Satan, who loves to see me discouraged and angry. I have discovered a wonderful thing. When I am at my lowest, I read scriptures (or recite passages out loud), and when Jesus’ Name is spoken, the enemy must flee! 

This demonstrates to me that God will go to battle for me with that nasty Enemy. As a mother and wife, I find myself in regular spiritual warfare. I see clearly that Satan wants to enlist all of our children for his evil army. One way he quickly disarms me is to discourage me. But when I call on my God to strengthen me, He does! I have memorized the verse above from Ephesians to protect me and my loved ones in the heat of the battle. We MUST pray that the LORD will protect our children from the enemy’s lies and traps. May they be Mighty Warriors for JESUS.
