Have you ever been to a basketball game?
I ask about basketball because it is the primary game my kids played when they were younger, and it gave me the opportunity to observe the coaches. Often, the coaches would have clipboards, and they would make notes on how the opposite team played: strengths, weak points, and any repetitive patterns that might give their players an advantage.
During timeout, the coach would use that clip board to show the players what they had observed: how to use those weaknesses to the team’s advantage, how to watch the other team’s strengths and catch them off guard.
If this sounds even somewhat familiar, it is because this is also in play in our spiritual life.
The enemy may not have a clipboard, but he observes you, learns everything he can about you, and he knows exactly how to get in your head. And how he gets into your head is not how he gets into mine. He is strategic and customizes his attack just for you, and just for me.
We are in a day-to-day, minute-by-minute spiritual battle, but we have the upper hand.
Today’s guest is Courtnaye Richard. We are talking about Ephesians 6 and the spiritual game plan that God has for us.
Courtnaye reminds us that:
“Anytime you’re about to do something big in your life, especially when it comes down to doing God’s will, our great enemy Satan will NOT be excited about it. He’ll actually try to figure out how he’s going to strategize against you.”
Listen in and learn how to combat the plan of the enemy with the powerful tool of God’s word.
Let me know:
What will you do to fight the enemy as it relates to your prayer life?
How will you fight off his barrage of distractions?
