No Weapon Formed: How To Overcome The Enemy

woman praying

The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace. ~Exodus 14:14

I receive so many emails from good Christian people who are looking for God to help them through a difficult crisis in their life. They question… why they are going through the difficulties? and where is God through all of this? Unfortunately, following Christ each day, living a Godly life does NOT mean you are immune from the trials and tribulations of life. You have to understand that there is a very real enemy named satan, who is actively trying to disrupt the work of God. In addition, Jesus told us what satan’s goal is concerning YOU in John 10:10, to KILL STEAL, AND DESTROY.

These past two weeks have been particularly hectic for me at work. However, due to the hectic work schedule, I found myself trying to integrate my prayer life throughout my workday more than usual. As things got stressful, I tried to find ways to calm myself with prayer. It seemed the more I prayed, the more I was tested. The enemy came at me every way possible. The more he pressed, the more I pressed back. Let’s just say… he got tired of pressing.

What would you do if someone began to push against you, attempting to throw you off a position that is rightfully yours? How would you respond? Most people would lean into the weight and push back. That’s a posture of resistance. And as believers, we must know when it’s time to lean with all our might against evil. But how?

Prayer is the believer’s great privilege and powerful weapon against Satan and his plans. The apostle Peter wrote, “Resist him, steadfast in the faith” (1 Peter 5:9). James echoed this teaching:

“Submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:7-8).

I know sometimes you want to crawl up in a corner and Pray to God that your problems just go away. But, that’s not exactly how it works! Problems are meant to be defeated, We should not be defeated by our problems. If God took away every problem that we encountered, every time we prayed, We would never know how it feels to overcome them. You can’t have a victory without winning the battle, just as you can’t have a testimony without passing God’s test. Instead of praying for God to take your problems away, Pray for Him to give you strength to conquer them. Today, get in the mindset: “I will not be defeated… I may have a big problem, but MY GOD is bigger!  Ask God to protect you and fight your battles for you. I assure you, the Battle is already won because God never loses a battle!

I was in a toxic workplace, prayed about 10 times a day, finally God got me out of that place. I needed the job but I think God realized that I needed my sanity more. Amen!!

My name is Mrs. sodiq ,and I’m happily married with a lovely husband and three children.I had a very big problem with my husband few months ago,to the extent that he even packed his things away from our house. He left I and and my kids for almost 5 months,and i tried all my possible best and effort to bring him back.l discussed it with a very good friend of mine,and she gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, that she is the only one that can handle my situations and problem,that she’s always ready and able to do anything related to spell casting and helping of the needy, please every one i would like you all to contact her via her email address,which is as follows.”shellywhite48@gmail.com". I never believed in spell casting,but My friend convinced me and i had no choice than to follow my friend advice,because i never dreamed of loosing my lovely Husband. And i contacted her with her email address,and i discussed with her all my problems and worries and so surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my husband back a day after. I didn't believed Her, until when i got home,the next day,my husband called me to inform me that he is coming back home…..So Amazing!! That’s how i got my husband back through spell casting and our relationship was stronger than ever. One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to the people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by shelly. So! my advice to you out there is to visit this same E-mail address,and tell her your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back or reshaping your life any problem at all, please Contact her and have a happy life. you can contact her via email (shellywhite48@gmail.com)

at the rate at which the deviel is attaching me since 2013 i believe he is threatned by my relationship with God.. nothing seems to be working and i even get discouraged to pray. many times i feel the Lord has forsaken me or He has turned His face away from me. But i believe God is still God in my life He will turn around my situations into testimonies!.. Be Blessed
