The Spiritual battle

We learned yesterday about putting on the armor of God, today we look at the battle we are in. The battle we face is not just a physical one. Instead, it is a spiritual battle with powers that we do not easily see and which are very powerful. We shouldn't dismiss this as an imaginary battle or as an irrelevant struggle. Just as clearly as Satan was crouching at Cain's door, desiring to have him, so he crouches at our door (Gen. 4:7). He will use his forces of evil to do all he can to defeat, destroy, or corrupt us. We must take this war seriously and recognize the spiritual power of our foe.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
— Ephesians 6:12

Father, forgive us for the times we have not taken the threat of evil seriously. Let us not be deceived by temptation and deliver us from the power of the evil one in all of his forms. In the mighty name of Jesus Amen.
