Satan's Plan for Your Life
Ephesians 6: 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Some observations from this passage-
1. Our struggle is not against flesh & blood. It is not against people. People are not the enemy.
2. Our struggle is against rulers, powers, world forces, spiritual forces. These things are set up by Satan, to direct our lives. To work against the cause of Christ. To steal, kill, and destroy us!
Question: If you were Satan, what would you do to keep people from joining the cause of Christ?
