Thought For Today: “An Endless War”
Believers in Jesus Christ will experience constant attacks from Satan. Satan literally has all the powers of evil are lined up against us. The Apostle Paul reveals the nature of our attackers.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12)
Further, in such a war there is no intermission, there is no let up. Any retreat on the part of Satan is merely a gathering of reinforcements, or to develop a new strategy to renew the onslaught.
This was his strategy against Jesus. After Jesus defeated him, it says that Satan waiting until the timing was more in his favor.
“When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.” (Luke 4:13)
We must, therefore, put on the whole armor of God and have our weapons fixed so that we can stand and not run when the attacks come (Ephesians 6:10-18). We must also wait and trust in God’s promise that “those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)
