There’s a war going on, and we are in it. The very moment we became Believers, we entered into this war. The war is waging all around us and is a constant battle. Because we are engaged in spiritual warfare, our armor and weapons must also be spiritual. We can’t go into any battle unprepared. Our enemy wants only to take us out, to make us ineffective in expanding the Kingdom of Heaven.
If we aren’t running head-on into the devil by noon, it’s probably because we are running alongside him. The best time to know that we are doing God’s will is when we are facing opposition. Every day we put on the whole armor of God. On our own, we are left defenseless against the enemy’s schemes.
God does not abandon us in our spiritual battles. We also have our Christ-centered recovery communities to help us in our battles. We are a part of a huge army of Believers who are determined to prevail and claim victory for our God. We are the foot soldiers in the battles for lives, families, and souls. We stand firm in our recoveries with the full armor of God.
