There are things in our lives that often times bring chaos, distraction, fear, and doubt. It is hard to get past these negative thoughts when they present themselves to us. These distractions can often times feel like a brick wall in our path; and no matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to climb over it. So what are we supposed to do when we are presented with a difficult situation that might be distracting us? The first thing that we must realize is what it is we are fighting against exactly.
Ephesians 6:12 Talks about what we are fighting against in this world. We do not fight against man, or the physical realm. When we are struggling with something in our lives, we cannot focus on the surface of the situation. Our fight is much deeper. It is in the spiritual realm our true struggle is.
Now that we know where our battle is, we must find a way to be able to win the fight. 1 John 5:4-5 says that through God we are overcomers. We have no need to be timid when our focus is on God. When you believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and you put your faith in Him; then you are protected by Him.
By overwhelming us in fear, Satan longs to make us timid and blind to what is happening beyond the physical realm. But God has not called us to be afraid. He has called us to be overcomers. So stand strong in He who protects you. Satan is always scheming against us, but through God we are victorious.
