With Whom Do We Battle?
The Bible tells us that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Today we discuss what this means in practical terms, and discover the battle plan, given to us by God himself, which will guarantee we stand through whatever the enemy brings our way.

Knowing the Enemy and Sharing the Victory
It's very important in a battle that we know who our enemy is, otherwise we are likely to waste all our efforts wrestling with someone or something else, and end up losing in the end.
God lays out for us in His Word, the Bible, a description of that with which our struggle really is, and the way we can stand through whatever the enemy brings our way. Our battle is not with flesh and blood — your mother-in-law, your boss, your neighbor, or that obnoxious co-worker — but with things that are unseen.
How does this relate to your struggles? What can you learn from the words of God that will give you everything you need to win every battle?
Ephesians 6:11 tells us to "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." If we pay close attention to what God is telling us here, it will make all the difference in our lives, and in the lives of those God is calling us to reach.
The armor begins with the girdle, or belt, of truth. So your first step is to learn the truth about this armor, and to put that truth into immediate practice in your life. So choose your connection speed at the top of this newsletter or read the transcript if you don't have audio, and let's explore this life-changing instruction from heaven together.
