Do you ever struggle with yourself? With other people? Do you struggle with old habits? The Bible teaches that or "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
The enemy has an organized spiritual hosts of wickedness that fire fiery darts into our lives with the purpose of trying to destroy our witness. If our witness is damaged then the enemy has an opportunity to do damage to the our influence for Christ. Fellow pilgrim, we are made victorious in Christ through His resurrection and by the power of the Holy Spirit and the blood of the lamb.
As I struggle:
1. I remind myself who is lying to me.
2. I realize that the Lord is in control and whatever happens He will take care of me.
3. I recall previous victories and realize the Lord will see me through.
