I strongly believe that there are angels and demons. That prayer matters. That there is a spiritual battle going on around us all the time ... and that we need to get involved in it, actively and consciously. (Something I haven't been doing lately.)
Regardless of if we want it or not, we are constantly facing spiritual battles. But if we don't acknowledge them - if we stick our head in the sand and refuse to get involved, to put on our spiritual armor, to use the spiritual weapons that are available to us - we open ourselves up to deceptions, to defeat, to being very vulnerable to the strategies and attacks of the evil one.
What I have done here is compile a list of posts on spiritual warfare, on praying Scripture, and on creating a War Room (or War Journal).
Have you ever seen The War Room?
You should. It's a great movie. And it is so relevant to real life. To the life that is most real - the spiritual life.
I've read through all these links, but I haven't checked out everything on each site (so you'll have to be discerning). But I've tried to be careful to choose only posts and sites that seemed trustworthy and accurate. Not overly sensationalized or biblically off-track or anything like that. But practical and down to earth and biblically-sound. Check a few out and be inspired to take the spiritual battle more seriously.
