This morning I was reminded of something. With that reminder, I got a revelation.
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.
I realize that I have been so against confrontation that I was not even confronting the enemy! I was just laying down and allowing him to beat me up.
Well, no more! I am going to WRESTLE! I won't be defeated! I am standing my ground! I have put on my full armour this morning and I'm ready for the day!
Wanna fight? Not me - not with flesh and blood - especially those I love or those I've been sent to love. BUT, I sure will fight the good fight of faith and I will come against those principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness and spiritual wickedness....
This time of year - aka "Halloween" - is always a spiritual battle. Why do we as Christians think that it is okay to participate in the "high holy day" of Satan???? As a friend says? Why participate and "give an appearance of evil" like we are in agreement with death and fear and destruction?
I'm always torn between having to give out candy to those in rebellion or hiding in my house with doors locked and lights off - or having to leave. I should not be put in that situation and it is one of the enemies that I will NOT bow to anymore. I will boldly proclaim - THIS HOUSE DOES NOT PARTICIPATE IN HALLOWEEN!
Like the Jews let it be known, they don't celebrate Christmas. Why do I have to hide and feel like I have to compromise MY beliefs....
Well, have a great day... and be bold, be strong, be who you are!
