Struggles

Child, there are 3 kinds of struggles you encounter daily.  The first is the conflict between your inner man and your outer man.  It is a continuous frustrating back and forth wrestling because you live in the contradiction of sin and holiness.  The second is the struggle, not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers and powers of this dark world, the principalities, namely the devil and his demons.  And thirdly is the struggle with God himself.  Jacob wrestled all night.  He wanted a blessing.  He desired a blessing.  He wrestled until morning to get it.

Become versed in the art of the struggle.   Correctly handle the Word of God.  We fight not with weapons of this world, but the weapons we fight with tear down strongholds.  The weapons we fight with are weapons of faith.  Unseen and yet most majestically strong.  Arm yourself, soldier!  Put on the full armor of God and take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  Put on the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the helmet of salvation, feet fitted with the readiness of the gospel of peace, and take up the shield of faith and the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.  You are well armed and well equipped in the power of the Holy Spirit.  Now stand firm!  Do not succumb to a spirit of fear, but be bold and stouthearted in the Lord, and remember God’s promise that no weapon formed against you will prosper.  He is your warrior King and He fights for you.

About lifevine

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
