One of my favorite songs on the radio right now is, “Worth Fighting For,” by Brian Courtney Wilson. This song has so much power. As humans we have a lot of things we’re fighting for. Whether it’s from our marriages, jobs, finances, or our lives… We’re always fighting. When people are faced with issues, they lose focus about who the fight is really with. It’s not someone else, nor is it a certain place… the fight is with the devil. Ephesians 6:12 tells us “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
The devil is literally trying to steal your joy. He’s attacking your marriage because he’s trying to tear down what God has put together. He’s attacking your finances, because he knows that’s what you are most worried about. Even greater, he’s attacking you, because he knows you’re too afraid to open your mouth.
Your victory over your situation lies beneath your nose – YOUR MOUTH. God has given you dominion and power to speak life over things. So when the devil makes his appearance, you should use the Word of God as your weapon. You must always have on your FULL armour of God, and you have to make sure it’s activated. You activate your armour by studying and meditating on the Word. Along with that, you have to be sure you’re living by God’s Word and not by the standards the world has presented to you.
In his book, “Every Day Is Friday,” Joel Osteen stated, “the enemy always fights you the hardest when he knows God has something great in your future. You are closest to your victory when it’s the darkest. So if your living in darkness right now, I come to remind you that Jesus is the light of the world and He can bring joy to any situation. All you have to do is keep fighting.”
