For 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. (Eph 6:12) This is serious stuff. The unseen world has far more power than the natural world, but we forget that. Then we wonder why we’ve been slammed with problems, financial stress, and sickness.
The good news is that we have ALL authority in Christ. All we have to do is resist the devil and he has to leave. But the devil isn’t stupid. He knows how to twist truth. He knows how to insinuate himself into what is good and pervert it. He’s not always easy to recognize.
That’s why Jesus said to pray, deliver us from evil. We need God to watch out for us where we cannot. He’s got eyes and ears in places that we don’t. But God is waiting for you to ask Him for help.
The minute you turn to the Lord, He responds. Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge. (Psalms 91:3-4)
When you ask for protection, you literally pull those big wings down over you and you are snug as a bug in a rug. And very, very safe.
