In this Ministry Minute video, Pastor Mac Hammond, of Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park, Minn., teaches what spiritual warfare looks like on a daily basis.
Spiritual warfare is happening around you every day, and you need to be prepared to withstand the enemy’s attacks. The Word warns us to “Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith” (1 Peter 5:8a, NLT).
The enemy looks for believers that he can attack, and one of the clearest ways that he determines how to attack is through our belief system. If we are unclear in what we believe or if our beliefs are contrary to God’s Word, then the enemy has an in. He has a foothold in our lives.
This can apply to any area of life—marriage, money, parenting, career, self-esteem or even our approach to God. If we believe God is angry at us or He desires for us to live in debt, destitution, disease or dysfunction, then the enemy will work with that belief and bring about pressure—spiritual warfare—to prove it right.
Our spiritual warfare counterattack relies on standing faithfully on God’s Word and trusting that what He said He would do, He’ll do. We can’t grow lax in our beliefs or allow ungodly influences to weaken our faith. Watch this KCM Ministry Minute video featuring Mac Hammond and learn how to stay strong every day from spiritual warfare attacks.
