Fight The Right Battle
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”—Ephesians 6:12
It's going to happen today. You are gonna "wrestle" with someone. But it's not a person you can see; it's not "against flesh and blood." Rather the force that opposes you is far more devious. It's a "cosmic" battle on three fronts—it's with "rulers, authorities, and powers" of a cosmic nature. Yeah, it sounds a little out of this world, but it is more real than you realize. And while you will want to wrestle with the people you see, you need to know you may be fighting with something unseen. This devious cosmic ruler, authority, and power wants to unravel your life by getting you to wrestle with the wrong enemy—so don't do it. Your opponent is not who you think.
DO THIS: Don't fight the wrong battle.
PRAYER: God, help me to see the battle and run to the right fight.
