We are under attack! Satan is attacking our values, our beliefs, our families, our cities, our country, and our souls. The Bible tells us that Satan only comes to steal, kill, and destroy but Jesus came to give us life and to give it to us abundantly.
Our world is in a spiritual war, like we have never seen before. People are full of hatred, negativity, and down right disrespect. Refusing to hear anything that disagrees with their beliefs or personal agenda. No group has been left out of the attacks– from the minority movements to removing God from school, television, and everyday life.
Satan has stirred up strife among so many through his lies and deceit. He has driven wedges between families, friends, and nations as a whole. Whispering the lies that drive the hatred between people or groups of people to an all time high.
Satan has our country so divided that we are attacking anyone whom has a “different” view on race, religion, sexual orientation/preference, politics, or even the meaning behind particular monuments, statements, and hand or body gestures.
We must learn to stop the enemy’s attack as soon as it starts. Access and use our own weapons of mass destruction against him. God has already won this war– we only have to believe and use the weapons He has given us.
What are these weapons, I am referring to?
Simply put, God’s Word– Scripture.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 NKJV
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal (of the flesh) but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 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
Luke 10:19 NKJV
Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
Put on the Whole Armor of God
Ephesians 6: 10-20 NKJV
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [c]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
God has given us His Word and all the authority to bind the attacks of the enemy. There is no special way to use these weapons; we only need to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and know His Word; so that we are equipped with scripture when the attacks from Satan come before us.
This is the time for our nation to rise together– to stand firm on the Word of God– to overcome evil with good– to spread love to one another– and to stop the hatred from filling our hearts.
Let today be the day you decide to be a part of the solution– to take a stand against the attacks of the enemy. If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to give your heart to Jesus. Accept Him as your Lord and Savior and pick up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to fight every attack with weapons of mass destruction– God’s Word.
Prayer for Salvation
Thank you Lord for loving me so much that You would send Your only son to die for me on the cross. Forgive me Lord for my sins– come into my heart and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. God I want You to be my Lord and Savior– the rock on which I stand. Come into my life, change me, renew me, and bring me closer to You. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray.
Prayer Over the Attacks of Satan
Thank you Lord for your Word and for your gift of salvation. Thank you for giving us the weapons we need to withstand the attacks from our enemy. God, I pray that each person who reads this will have clarity on the message you are giving. I pray that they would seek to take up the whole armor of God. That they would equip themselves with your Word and remember to access it’s power when under attack. I pray that each person’s heart would be filled with your love, mercy, and forgiveness. That each would eagerly be wanting to be a part of the solution by spreading love and stopping the violence and hatred. Remind us God that we must overcome evil with good and that You have already won the battle. Lord help us to put our trust in You and You alone. Knowing that You have given us all the power over the enemy and nothing by any means, shall harm us. Thank you Lord for Your promises and and authority in Jesus mighty name I pray.
