When you’re under attack (5)

5 July 2023 ‘With us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles.’ 2 Chronicles 32:8 NIV

The new birth creates a battle between your old nature and your new nature, and you must learn how to fight it. For the last handful of days, we have been looking at scriptural strategies for winning. Here are a few more: 1) Fill your mind with Scripture. David said, ‘If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction’ (Psalm 119:92 NIV). Your mind is like soil; it will grow any seed you plant, good or bad. When you plant words spoken by God, you’re sowing energy, life, and hope into your spirit. God’s Word is like a vaccination; it strips Satan of his power to infect you with fear and unbelief. The psalmist said, ‘The law of their God is in their hearts; their feet do not slip’ (Psalm 37:31 NIV). 2) Reach out to others. ‘When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before!’ (Job 42:10 NLT). Does that sound strange? It may be strange in the kingdom of men, but not in the kingdom of God. You are the solution to somebody else’s problem, and when you reach out to them, God will reach out to you (see Ephesians 6:8). Go ahead, try it. 3) Remember that seasons change. David said, ‘Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning’ (Psalm 30:5 NLT). This attack won’t last forever – morning is coming! People change and circumstances change. So, start believing God to change things on your behalf. He promised to do it, and He will.
