There are battles waging around us as well as in our hearts and minds. As Believers, we don’t just battle Satan. We are also in a battle with the culture we live in and with our own minds. These battles are fought through surrendering ourselves each day to Christ. None of us have the strength or stamina to fight our battles that rage on three different fronts. But Christ can and will if we allow Him to be our mighty fortress.
Each day we are bombarded by political news on tv and social media. Politics has become cerebral porn, and we are the addicts who constantly crave more. Our addictions are fed by a never-ending supply of disdain and empty narratives. What the enemy wants more than anything else is to distract us away from our relationship with Christ. The enemy has created a new idol to worship that feeds off fear and distrust.
Christ is our mighty fortress. In Christ, we are shielded from the insanity of our world. Christ battles the demons attempting to get a foot-hold in our hearts and minds. We cannot forget the eternal nature of being a Believer. Whatever is going on right now is fleeting compared to the eternal glory of Christ. Christ is calling us to take rest in Him, not fall for the trap of lies that’s been set to pull us away from our time with Him.
