Protect Yourself Spiritually

“He will…oppress the…people of the Most High.” Da 7:25 NLT

Satan uses these two strategies:

  1. “He will defy the Most High.” Satan will always attack God’s plan, God’s principles and God’s people, so be on guard!
  2. “He will…oppress the…people of the Most High.”

Weariness is a weapon Satan will use against you. When you’re worn out, you’re vulnerable. At that point temptation can lead to compromise, compromise to indulgence, and indulgence to defeat. “Make no provision for the flesh” (Ro 13:14 NKJV).

Don’t give Satan an inch or he will take a mile.

YOUR MIND IS WHERE THE REAL ATTACK TAKES PLACE.

The Bible warns you to be careful, “Lest you become weary and faint in your mind” (See Heb 12:3).

Satan will wear you down in order to wipe you out.  So you must take time to replenish your strength in God’s presence.

It’s easy to get caught up in the work of the Lord, and not spend time with the Lord of the work.  Jesus said: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me-watch how I do it…I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live” (Mt 11:28-30 TM).

When you commit yourself to doing God’s will, God’s way, in God’s strength, you don’t wear out. You’re fulfilled, you stay in balance, and you overcome the stress and anxiety of this world. And that’s how God wants you to live.
