A Kingdom Leader is aware of the fraud being used against him by the enemy. The spiritual forces of this world are individually focused in hand to hand combat with good leaders. Most importantly their style of competition is anchored in trickery and deception. They have each of us engaged in an intense struggle that can have surprising twists and turns.
Are you aware of the deception being used to discourage the efforts of our Lord? Have your spirits been dampened by the struggle you face on a personal level. Are you easily entangled by sin? Do you understand the intense struggle you face with each wrestling match that comes your way? Are you just playing the game and not concerned about the great effort being used by the spiritual forces of this world?
Paul says, For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against lthe cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.(1)
You should push back the darkness in your life. We are praying with you today.
