You know what they say, “everything is not as it seems”. And just because you don’t see something, doesn’t mean it does not exist.
We are all at war in this world. And I’m not talking about the physical war that military men are fighting in to protect us all.
I’m talking about spiritual battles. Battles we can’t see. But just because we can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there.
And they manifest in our lives in various ways. Like obstacles and disappointments that keep happening in your life with no tangible cause.
Sometimes, things just seem to go wrong with no cause and explanation and it looks like all at once, everything is headed downhill and it’s all a series of bad news and disappointments.
These are mostly a result of spiritual battles that we are not even aware of. That is why the word of God tells us to be alert and sober-minded so that we don’t fall victim to the devil’s ploy.
The word of God is our weapon in this battle. So it is important that you pray the word of God over your life and that of your family’s.
Fight the good fight with the word of God. Read it, meditate on it and memorize it.
Below are some bible verses about spiritual warfare you can pray over your life.
