But I digress.
I've been thinking and praying a lot about spiritual warfare. It's a very real thing and not just down in the jungles of Africa. It's very real in our own daily lives. I honestly (and ashamedly) never really thought much about it until recently. But it has become very real in my own mind and heart.
Over the past few months, I have been living more intentionally and striving to better every area of my life for the glory of God, the furtherance of His kingdom, and the blessing of those around me (one small, unsteady baby step at a time!).
And the devil hates it.
He knows where and when I'm weak and attacks with a vengeance. I don't feel the need to share every detail publicly but it's intense and overwhelming and paralyzing.
MY GOD IS STRONGER AND MIGHTIER AND HE WINS.
It is my responsibility to fill my mind with truths from His Word to combat the lies of the enemy. It is my responsibility to take every thought captive to obey Christ. It is my responsibility to control how I respond when the attacks strike. It is my responsibility to put on the whole armor of God.
When I am weak, He is strong.
