f we only knew the real battle that is waged against us we’d celebrate the victories that are not seen.
The real enemy of your life is not visible to the human eye. People may be willing participants, usable tools for Satan to use for his purpose, to create trouble and cause chaos that leads to overwhelming struggle. They may have a tongue that causes an unexpected fire in your life that brings insurmountable pain. They may be the agonizing thorn that never goes away that lingers and stings. But the real battle, the real war is in another realm.
He walks around like like a roaring lion seeking to devour and destroy. The enemy is intentional and methodical, he plots and waits. Maybe you see his footprints maybe you don’t, but he is on a manhunt for your soul and will use whatever he can to take you down. Stand guard. Stand firm.
He will lie to you, mislead you, deceive you and surround you. He will present himself as good and may even be good to you. But remember, he is not for you but so against you. And he never grows tired of plotting.
But we have a greater army of hosts in our sphere doing battle that we can’t see. Fighting what we can’t fight and overcoming what is in the dark. Don’t waver or wander cling tightly to Him. Position yourself in the sanctity of His bosom. You were bought with a high price. Don’t ever forget it; victory is yours for the taking.
And then, gird up fellow warrior. Walk tall, because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. And give thanks for the unseen victories you will never see this side of heaven.
