Make War Against Yourself–l4hDvYGGY


(Romans 7:22-23) “For I delight in the Law of God in my inner being, but I see in my body a different principle waging war with the Law in my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin that exists in my body.”

(1 Peter 5:8) “Be clear-minded and alert. Your opponent, the devil, is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”

(Philippians 2:12) “And so, my dear friends, just as you have always obeyed, not only when I was with you but even more now that I am absent, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling.”



You need to stop looking for a demon under every bush, around every corner, or hidden in every shadow. They are not always the reason for your problems, nor what is causing you so much suffering. Though there are times when only prayer in the name of Jesus will set you free from your problems, for the most part, it is an attack that originates in your mind.

It is in your mind where you first win or lose all your battles, as it is where your faith either grows or is extinguished. When we have surrendered to Christ and renewed our minds through His Word, we have a good fighting chance. Does that mean that we will always do what is right? Of course not!

As we still live within this body and are affected by all we see and hear, we are still weak in our will to do what is good. Apostle Paul was very much aware of this inner battle between our mind and our body. Even though we are like prisoners in the body and with the fallen desires of our old nature, we have the supernatural ability to overcome and do what is right.

Sometimes, our past failures and fears can be weeds that choke our future and blessings. If we still believe that God is angry with us, or that we don’t deserve to prosper, we will not work towards climbing up the ladder, but rather get stagnated and believe the lies of Satan.

We are advised to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. Not to just sit there and watch the days go by as we continue to feel sorry for ourselves, stay weak before temptation or wonder why things are not working out for us in life.  We have to learn to do what is right, at the right time, and with the right heart. 

The key is to continue to fight, stay vigilant and take full responsibility for our actions. Delilah stripped Samson of all his strength while he slept. The evil one planted bad weeds in the good soil while everyone slept. Once you admit your faults in the natural and start to change them, you are waking up to reality and the spiritual attacks will start to become easier to withstand.

The best way to win the war is to use the promises of God in the Bible as a weapon to destroy every attack against you or your loved ones.
