We have many of our Journey family traveling. Traveling mercies to all!

Our relationship with God means we can bring our prayers and requests, and ask for God’s healing hand on the lives of our brothers and sisters in Christ.

If you, or someone you know, is in need of prayer and would like to be included on this list, please let us know.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us

Spiritual Warfare

Reflection: Spiritual Warfare

Ephesians 6:10-12

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

From the moment we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, we enter into a spiritual battlefield. Our Scripture reminds us we struggle, not against the things of this physical world, but against spiritual powers of darkness. When we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, we’re drawn into an inevitable battle because we have an enemy that hates us, and is out to destroy us. We are in a war, and in order to be engaged in spiritual warfare, we must be prepared. As we continue through this Epiphany season and into the rest of the year, let’s be wise to Satan’s tactics. Let’s be of somber mind, let’s put on the full armor of God so that we can, by God’s amazing love and power, overcome our enemy.

Reflection Questions:

Please read and think about each question as it applies to your Christian journey with Christ.
  • In what ways do you find yourself engaged in spiritual warfare? Where are some areas where the enemy “attacks” your faith?
  • How can we trust in God’s power and help in our spiritual battles?

Prayer:

Lord, please be our strength as we attempt to live for you in this world. Let us overcome the enemy with your power. Help us see things through the eyes of faith so as not to be deceived by the devil. Be with us as we fight sin and temptation, and let us always live for your glory.
