2 Corinthians 11:14 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

2 Corinthians 11:14

“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.”

How do you handle attacks? Because they are coming, and most of the time, it’s not gonna be a big flashing sign that says “Attack from the enemy!” Often, it may look right and seem right, but when tested, it proves to be false and not from the Lord!

An attack came to me this morning during prayer: a thought, a hint, a suggestion that sent me spiraling into fear, doubt, and anxiety. A couple words that took me out of His presence and into panic! Forgive me, Lord, and have mercy on me the sinner! How quickly I stumbled, and it’s only by the grace of God that I rebounded as quickly as I did! I know all about these kinds of attacks, but just because I know about them doesn’t mean I can stop them. But I know the One who can!

When we find ourselves in this position, we have to go with what we know is true, and that’s the Word of God! So, I prayed a form and a part of John 16:13, “Holy Spirit, Jesus says You will lead us into all truth, so lead me into all truth. Drive out the lies with Your truth!” Also, a prayer form of Colossians 3:3: “For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.”

God has given us Spiritual armor, and the Bible is our sword. The Holy Spirit revealed to me a few weeks ago that a sword is used for both offense and defense, if wielded correctly! I encourage you to get to know your sword; it can both defend and deliver you from these attacks! If our battle was against flesh and blood, then we could use physical weapons, but it’s not; it’s against powers we can’t see and things we can’t defeat on our own, but Jesus Christ is King, and He can! 

 Ephesians 6:12: For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

Pray for me and each other!!!! I love you all! God bless! Glory, Honor, and Praise forever to God Almighty, King Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!
