HE LIFTS US UP: The Battle Rages On… (Ephesians 6:11-17)

There are many victims of abuse who live their lives filled with turmoil, fear, and nightmares. Whether real or perceived, it feels like there is a constant battle going on around them as they live in fear of another attack by their abuser. The fear and struggles continue like whirlwinds twirling around their heads. Nightmares, panic attacks, and fear are experienced frequently….

I know because I have been there.  I have felt the stress, the fear, the attacks, the confusion, the turmoil… It would not stop!!! Until I learned a valuable lesson…

I learned that the mind is a major battlefield. It is in the mind that Satan puts fear and causes distress. He puts nightmares in  our minds at night. There is a battle of good versus evil in our lives every day, and Satan causes this turmoil that continues to attack us. I learned to fill my mind with the Word of God, declaring His promises over my life. I prayed Ephesians 6:11-17 everyday and learned about spiritual warfare. I started declaring that God “did not give me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind”. (2 Timothy 1:7)  The attacks decreased  as I learned and drew closer to God, helping me to become an over-comer.  I encourage everyone to read these verses in Ephesians as “The battle rages on”…

Ephesians  6: 11-17 (NIV)

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

    Praise God and welcome to the battle. The battlefield is of the mind and the spiritual war is around us. As stated clearly in Romans 12: 1 and 2; “Therefore I urge you brothers in view of God’s mercy to offer your bodies a living sacrifice (alive and dead) holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not be conformed to the pattern of this world , but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Cover it, (your mind) protect it by the promises and truths of scripture always. The helmet of salvation. God bless you.

    Reblogged this on The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel and commented:

    Put on the Armor of God and stand firm. Use the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God–make declarations over your life and watch God fight your battle for you as you stand on His Word.

  3. Praise God for He has supplied all we need to live in His power and to be “more than conquerors” in Christ.
