Yesterday we started the bible study, Armor of God. Awesome first session. One thing Priscilla Shirer said really stuck in my head!
We all have people in our lives who are so irritating, who bring out the worst in us, that we believe were placed by Satan himself. Could be a relative, a co-worker, a boss, etc.
What Priscilla said that stuck with me is this: They are not the enemy. The battle is in the heavenly places. Of course, this is my paraphrase and how I heard it. I think because God wanted me to hear this especially.
I have one person at this time who drives my head to a point! And she brings out the worst in me. The need to be right, the need to have the last word, impatience, lack of compassion, etc. I often pray before I spend time with her but after listening to the teaching last night, I will pray every time. I KNOW prayer works. I’ve had personal experience in answered prayers. So why do we forget to pray or just neglect prayer? Because we think we can handle the situation and/or person? We call on our own abilities, skills, etc. to handle a bad situation when we should be praying. Especially, because the battle is not of this world, we are really wasting our time and energies. And believe me wasting energy, by relying on our own efforts, can make us physically sick. We can even pray while in the presence of the person.
When I’m with a client, I always prayer prior to the meeting and often silently call on Holy Spirit for guidance and wisdom during the meeting.
So again, why do we let Satan get the better of us! That thought just makes me angry. God has ALL the power. Satan is a deceiver and part of his game is to deceive us into thinking he has any power at all. Today I’m saying NO to him and very loudly declaring he will have no place in my home, in my life, in my relationships!
I’m declaring Holy Spirit will have full reign over my life and anyone I come into contact with including those difficult people.
Just some thoughts of mine this morning. Hope everyone has an awesome day!
