Battle with satan. This is already a victorious battle with the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus. Therefore, when he comes around, the best defense is to keep my focus on God. The devil tries to use me and others to get to me. Being aware of this, I always ask God to protect me from my self and others whenever I ask Him to protect me from the plans of the devil.
- Self – the spirit of self-doubt (Did God really say this is what I am to do?)
- Other – the spirit of comparison (He or she would be a better choice than me)
The battle with satan is done in the spiritual realm, not the natural realm; hence we cannot use natural tools to defeat him. We NEED the Holy Spirit to go against satan. The Holy Spirit does not only act as a comforter but also a guide and protector. He will protect us from allowing the devil to derail us from the path we must take to fulfill our purpose on earth.
