With a new year and new habits comes a new battle. When satan sees you making all these positive changes in your life – it makes him cranky. Because let’s be honest, he does not want us happy, healthy, and thriving.
He begins to magnify all the little things that he knows will upset us. He begins to nit pick. He wants to wear you down. He wants you to believe that you can’t be successful.
Get ready for battle, guys. Just remember – God provides us with a sword and a shield. Don’t be afraid to use them.
“10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” – Ephesians 6:10-13
