The battles we face are against spiritual forces; we do not war against flesh and blood. We might fight with those around us not discerning our real enemy, who is unseen. It is helpful to discern this is happening quickly, so time is not wasted battling the wrong things. God sees what we do not see, and He protects us as we seek Him and continue to surrender all our ways.
Diversity comes with adversity. We don’t always see the enemy because he surprises us in areas where we are not used to warring. We know our weak areas and are accustomed to battling there so he tempts us in unknown territories. We should be watching on all sides, especially our blind side. Our enemy doesn’t make his schemes obvious; He is deceitful and often closer than we think.
Attacks will come unexpectedly and from different sources. We should take heed and walk in wisdom. When a harmful situation is detected, we must humbly and quickly move away from its potential destruction and run to the Lord, reaching out for His grace. When the invisible is encountered, we find that only Christ is invincible. We war by His grace and power alone, from glory to glory!
Ephesians 6:12 “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.”
