Ephesians 6:12 tells us that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.  Every day, we are up against the devil and his schemes.  He pounds us with lies, hits us with accusations and wraps us up in condemnation, trying to exhaust us so we’ll just submit to him and tap out. The devil wants you to believe that he is so strong he cannot be defeated.  But that is a lie straight from the pit of hell. James 5:7 says “Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”  Don’t show up to the fight unarmed. Be Battle Ready. Spend time each day in God’s Word.  Gear up and be prepared for the fight. Don’t let the devil smack you around.  Hit him with the Word of God and watch him tap out every time.
