“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4).
The actions of people, including ourselves, is driven by many things. Amongst these are the spiritual elements that buffet us around every day. Do not be driven by the winds of this world, but by the goodness and grace of our Savior. Be aware that you are influenced by many things and realize the same is true for others. Be on your guard to live into the life You have been given by grace.
Lord, I often think these things just a matter of circumstance or upbringing. Help me see the truth that I may understand more fully myself and those around me. I do not have the ability to see all things, but help me to see what is evident that I may know Your voice above all the voices in this world. Lead me, Lord, in the way of truth that I may walk humbly with You.
Lord Jesus, You came to save us and each day I need to be saved from all of the voices, spirits, and wickedness that is all around me. Keep me on my guard and show me those places where I need to be armed against the wicked one. Through all things teach me to have mercy on those unaware that I might at all times be guided by You and not live my life swayed by the foul winds of this age. Amen.
