You Must Stay Proactive
Many times you’re simply minding your own business. You’re at home, work, or just trying to do something relaxing. Next thing you know satan strikes out of nowhere. He may breathe confusion in a relationship. He may take you from the greatest high to the lowest low. All you know is you just didn’t see it coming.
Most of us just don’t recognize the spiritual battle until we’ve been knocked down by the enemy. We put our faith on a shelf and only grab it when things feel urgent. Our prayers are typically reactive instead of proactive. If only we could realize the devil never sleeps. He is always preying on the moments we choose to spiritually sleep walk through life.
Friends we must stay on our knees before God. We must keep praying for God’s protection, provision, and purpose in our lives. You see, the enemy can’t stand the name of Jesus. He knows in Christ you will overcome and will stay anchored. He knows that at the name of Jesus all darkness must flee. So, stay alert and keep praying persistently. Then, you will be prepared when the devil strikes.
“Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.” (Ephesians 6:18)
