The LORD said to Satan, “The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?” Zechariah 3:2 NIV

I have a dear friend, Max, who sometimes I think he knows me better than I know myself.

 

When my family was dealing with health issues, Max sent me this message. “You have helped many people with your first book and Satan isn’t happy. He is waging a war on you. Rebuke him and claim your victory over everything. He only wants to steal and destroy your peace and joy. Wage the war of prayer warriors for your family.”

 

Later, when I was having trouble sleeping, I received this message from Max. “Could the sleep issues be Satan interrupting your sleep because of your next book? Are you casting him off before bed?”

 

Max’s text messages are always another train of thought that is good for me to consider. I hope you have a friend that does the same for you.

Thank you, God, for sending good friends into our lives to help us find our way when we are lost. Amen.

What is your line of defense when you feel that Satan is waging war on you?

How can you change your plan of action and turn the war over to God in prayer?

    Recognizing the battle is not against flesh and blood and seeing who your real enemy is helps you to know how to fight against these things. God is our true source of strength, wisdom and He reminds us to make sure we have our spiritual armor on everyday. Thank you for sharing. Enjoyed reading.
