The battle within

2015 - 1I often wonder whether we realize that on a daily basis we are in a spiritual battle within where God is trying to draw people to himself and righteousness and at the same time Satan is trying to steal our hearts away from God. The choices we make the words we use and the actions we take significantly determines whether we are yielding to God and releasing his power into our lives or whether we are yielding to Satan and releasing sin and death into our lives as stated in the book of Romans 6:16 “Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as an obedient slaves, you are slaves to the one you obey- whether you are slaves to sins which leads to death or to obedience which leads to righteousness”. Satan cannot control you outside of your will. He tricks us to yield to him. Lack of awareness and understanding of the battle only works to his advantage. Learn to discern the tricks of the evil one so that you can be able to flee from him. Nothing good comes from the evil however enticing it might be its gains are temporary and often at a heavy cost.
