Dear reader, are you feeling greatly intimidated by the armies of the enemy lately? Do you at times feel weak in your faith and think that the enemy will easily defeat you? Is there a wind of fear and lack of courage blowing against you? Remember, God’s invisible army is around you. They are fully equipped with the most powerful weapons to defeat any of the tactics of the enemy. They will protect you from all evil. They encompass around you all the time. But if you want to see the army of God, you need proper spiritual eye sight. You need to apply spiritual balm from the Word for renewing and sustaining proper eye sight. Reading and meditating on the Word would open our eyes of understanding and will generate faith in our hearts. Then we will be able to see properly and realize that the heavenly hosts around us far outnumber the enemy who tries to devour us. We do not need to be anxious or fearful because our Lord and His heavenly hosts will protect us from all attacks by the enemy. Perhaps you are confronted with enemies like negative thoughts, doubts, confusions, discouragements, conflicts, failures and stress which the enemy use to fight and defeat you. But the whole armor of God which is given to us is sufficient to meet the soldiers of darkness and find victory for us. So today we can face the enemy with courage and strength which we receive from our Lord. He will continue to give us victory as He encompasses around us with His soldiers. Let us trust in the Lord, our commander-in-chief, to give us victory. Let us appreciate the fact that our heavenly army which is around is far greater in power and strength than the enemy. So we need not waste our energy by looking at our enemies and become slaves to them in our thought life. Let us today open our eyes and see the powerful army of God encompassing around us and become courageous.Psalms 46:7 – The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. Thought for Today
When we apply the ointment of God’s Word to our spiritual eyes, we will be able to see the invisible armies of God around us and experience fearlessness and great confidence.
