There is a fight going on around us at all times. This is a fight that’s not seen with the natural eye because the natural eye can not perceive that which is spiritual, and this indeed is a fight amongst the spirits. Just because our natural eye can’t see what’s going on in the spirit realm does not mean that we are not affected by this perpetual battle, and just because we can’t see in the realm of the spirit with our natural eye, does not mean that we can’t see spiritually.
See God made us humans in His image, therefore we too are three part beings: spirit, soul and body and it’s that spirit-man on the inside of us that’s able to see and connect with the things in the realm of the spirit. This power and ability don’t come naturally though. Just as our bodies need food and water to survive and thrive, that spirit-man on the inside has a need to be fed as well. We feed our bodies meat and potatoes. That spirit-man is nourished by the word of God (The Bible) and much, much prayer. The Bible tells us that men are always to pray.
The better we feed our bodies, the stronger they are, the more productive they are and the better equipped they are to fight off the disease that tries to enter into it. Our spirit-man is simular. The more we feed it, the stronger it gets, the more productive it becomes and the better equipped to fight off the disease of the wicked spirits that tries to enter in.
It’s impossible to win a fight when we can’t see our opponent, so we must be willing to step out of that deceptive darkness, into God’s marvelous light, which enables us to see, and empowers us to fight the good fight of faith and declare victory over the enemy.
