“FOR WE ARE NOT FIGHTING AGAINST FLESH-AND-BLOOD ENEMIES, BUT AGAINST EVIL RULERS AND AUTHORITIES OF THE UNSEEN WORLD, AGAINST MIGHTY POWERS IN THIS DARK WORLD, AND AGAINST EVIL SPIRITS IN THE HEAVENLY PLACES.” – EPHESIANS 6:12 (NLT)
Father, I recognize there is a real enemy at work in this world. Give me wisdom to discern the work of the enemy around me, and to oppose his schemes and plans. I don’t live in fear, but choose to live in faith. Just as Jesus defeated the enemy through the work of the cross, I also claim victory in my life. You have equipped me with the armor of God and the power of Your Word. Therefore, I will meditate on your Word. I will walk in truth, allow Your peace to be my guard and my guide, and hold faith as my shield. Thank You for always planning a way for me to be victorious. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
