lies-of-the-enemy

The Topic of Spiritual Warfare seems to barraging my circles recently. The Lies of the Enemy are real and they are messing with our hearts, our psyches, and threatening to take away our peace. Why is it that when people make the choice to grow closer to God or commit to do His work, things start to get painful?

On one hand, it seems counter intuitive. Aren’t things supposed to get better for us when we get closer to God?  (Why else are we pursuing Him then?)

And on the other hand, it makes perfect sense, because our ultimate enemy’s sole purpose to keep us from achieving our goal, without us even knowing it.

Why should I Prioritize my Prayer Life?

I have to recommit every day in order to prioritize my prayer life. This time genuinely sustains my life. It gives me rest, energy and peace. Without it, I can’t imagine what my life would be like.

My marriage definitely wouldn’t be as close.

My parenting wouldn’t even be remotely peaceful – in fact, I know this because I tried it for 5 years before I figured this out.

My mental health would be dangerously unstable – with stress levels off the charts and fear of all life’s “what-if”s and potential negatives sending my hope for the future up in flames.

A strong prayer life is the only thing that keeps me balanced. I know because I haven’t always had it…. But, the closer I grow to Him and the more time I spend with Him, the more the weight of everything else genuinely seems to fade.
