“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of evil of this world, against spiritual forces of wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
During the “American Holiday Seasons” more than any other time of the year is when people have historically reported the highest attacks of “spiritual warfare.” God gave me a few scriptures for us to dwell on during these times to help us to overcome these demons.
“And set aside the thoughts that are most heavy unto thee, and haste thee to flee from these times.” 2Esdras 14:15
“For the corruptible body presses down the soul, and the earthy tabernacle weighs down the mind that muses upon many things.” Wisdom of Solomon 9:15
This is the Bible encouraging us to put the past behind us, stop dwelling constantly over what happened, or even on what could be and start focusing on today.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18
Start focusing things that are positive and not things that are negative. Start focusing on things that lift you up and not things that bring you down. Start focusing on solutions and not problems.
“Their imagination of things to come, and the day of death, [trouble] their thoughts, and [cause] fear of heart;” Ecclesiasticus (Sirach) 40:2
This scripture about constantly dreaming and imagining the end times I have struggled with myself and still struggle with, but the Bible is telling us to stop dreaming about it, stop imagining it, because the truth is none of us have no idea what it is truly going to look like. The Most High overall word for me this upcoming New Year on the Georgian Calendar is to become the best version of yourself, even in the dark times, even in debt, even when you are single, even when all hell is breaking loose in your life, strive to become the best version of yourself, this is the best way to combat spiritual warfare, fighting fire with fire.
