Have you ever noticed a catcher’s attire? He has a mask, chest protector, shin guards, and a glove. He wears all that because he has to catch a 90+ mile and hour pitch from a guy that is less 60 feet 6 inches away, and a person with a bat in front of him! What would you think of a person who went behind home plate stood there without any protection at all and tried to catch a pitch? We might think that he is either “a few bricks short a load,” or that “his elevator did not go to the top floor”. Yet there are many Christians today, who are going into a far worse situation than this; without any protection they face a spiritual attack on their mind and emotions! Many people have never considered how they may be tempted, and therefore, have no idea how to handle any temptation that comes into their life. We need to view spiritual warfare as it is presented in the Bible, where the devil is fought with the weapons of prayer, preaching, witness, godly living, obedience to Scripture and faith in the promises of God’s word. Facing our spiritual battle is not a mystical encounter, rather, scripture gives clear instruction that we are to arm ourselves with the spiritual armor of Ephesians 6, so that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Peter writes in 1 Peter 1:13, “Wherefore, gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;” This passage gives us three clues to sure and certain victory: Know the Truth, Live the Truth, and Trust the Truth!
