Spiritual Minefield -by Lois Macdonald

Are you walking through a spiritual minefield? Anxious about tomorrow and chained to the past. Drowning in a sea of confusion, weighed down by thoughts of negativity. If so, it is imperative that you put on the whole Armour of God [1]and fight the good fight. For you, my friend, are under spiritual attack!

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8-9.

He wastes no time hunting those who are already dead spiritually. But he has an insatiable appetite for the sweet blood of Christ and all his followers. This enemy’s favorite hiding place is in the subconscious mind. The most complicated organ in our body, rather like a conductor of an orchestra. A maestro working morning and night, listening unconsciously even while we sleep. When this “gray matter” of ours is uncluttered, it creates beautiful music. But when our thoughts get cloudy and seem darker than usual, the chances are that our music is sending the dogs running for cover! If left unaddressed, one by one each instrument will cease playing. The most courageous and healthy thing we can do if this happens is to seek professional help, including our pastor.

While it is seldom discussed, Scripture confirms that the mind is Satan’s favorite battlefield. We should not be embarrassed or surprised if we are under attack, for it is evidence that we are in a close relationship with God. All believers have the power to fight back in Jesus name! We can confront Satan by calling him a liar when he tries to feed us negative thoughts. Quote Scripture. He hates that!  “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name (Christ) they will drive out demons…” Mark 16:17. Dedicate your home to God and ask him to fill each room and those who come and go from it to be blessed. So, do not be afraid of the outcome of your battle for God has already won the victory!

 “Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine.” Isaiah 43:1

  In the end, “God will not look you over for medals, degrees or diplomas but for scars” -by Elbert Hubbard.

[1] (Ephesians 6:10-18).
