the unseen battle…

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
Ephesians 6:12 (NIV)

I can’t see it but I know it’s there.
I feel the struggle,
I see it in my daily life.
I hear the voice of my enemy.
I taste the bitterness of the battle.
I smell my own fear.

Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion
looking for someone to devour.
I Peter 5:8 (NIV)

Fear, insecurity,
pain, doubt,
sickness and sin
swirl around
seeking to engulf me.

In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
John 16:33 (NIV)

I forget.
HE remembers.
As my Good Shepherd
HE draws me to HIM

I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— 
John 10:14 (NIV)

I cling to Whom
I belong
as the storm rages

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11:28 (NIV)

I rest in the ONE
who knows me best

With God we will gain the victory,
and he will trample down our enemies.
Psalm 60:12 (NIV)

HE is my victory.
