Ephesians 6:11-12 (AMP) 11 Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. 12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against [the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.
It’s not people we war with, it is the Devil. The Devil works through other people and sometimes even our own flesh by using our emotions. You can be happy no matter how many people you think are against you or no matter what your circumstances are. A lot of times the problem itself isn’t the issue, it is how we react and respond to our problem that is what impacts our life. Our responses can make us unhappy, sad, and or miserable or our responses can make us happy, love life, and someone fun to be around.
It’s time to stop blaming everyone and everything for our problems and take responsibility for our lives. We are not victims we are conquerors. We do not have to be at the mercy of our Circumstance because God is on our side and all things are possible with God. God changes things when we release our lives and problems into His hands.
James 5:16 (AMP) 16 Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
