Spiritual War: Choose a side

Updated on January 3, 2013

There is a very real spiritual war going on every day you wake up, between GOOD and evil... GOD and the devil. Whether you like it or not, you are a part of this war. You must choose which side you are going to be on. There is no in between. You can't say you’re on GOD's side until you give up fighting for the devil. By fighting for the devil I mean participating in sin with no regard or regrets. Don’t you want GOD to acknowledge you being on his side when the war is finally over? You were given life on earth for one specific reason and that is to prove yourself worthy of GOD'S Kingdom, for the real, eternal life after. Life on earth's sole purpose is to prove where you deserve to be. Please think about that and really take it in. Open your eyes and see the signs. Time is going by too fast. Before you know it you will be out of time. We need to take a stand against evil forces.

Ephesians 6:12~ "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

How to choose

Talk to yourself about what you really want out of life and how you want to be known. Are you an evil person? Do you want to be an evil person? If you are having some problems figuring it out then you need to seek spiritual guidance that will lead you and guide your footsteps. God is always there, you just have to reach out to him. No matter what you've done in the past he is still waiting for you to ask for forgiveness. Free yourself from any evil bonds or holds that may be keeping you. Do not be ashamed to go to God.

Ways to fight the good fight

We have to learn to resist, overcome, and defeat the enemy's lies which come in the form of deception, temptations, and accusations.

Prayer is very helpful. Prayer is when you talk to God. During these times, it’s important to read and know your bible and also stay in prayer. Some people fast, which is when you take away something in your everyday life in order to concentrate on the issue at hand. Others anoint with oil to rid persons and things of dangerous or evil influences. Pick one that’s best for you or use them all. No matter if you already know how or you've never done it before, as long as you practice you will continue to build your defense.

Cherish Each Day

Have you ever heard that saying "Here today, gone tomorrow"? Well that statement is so true in many ways. Our lives are so uncertain when it comes to how long we have. You never know when it's your time to breathe your last breath. That's why it's very important for you to be thankful for your life each day; no matter if it’s a mess or if you think you have everything under control.

Recently quite a few people that I know have lost someone dear to them. For some it was a total shock and for others they knew the day would soon come. With this being said, your choice needs to be made. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Cherish each day of your life. Make a positive difference, do what’s right and prepare yourself.
