We tackled the subject of spiritual warfare in class last night. More specifically, how we can be aware of (but not focused on) the enemy’s tactics and strategies.

One of the key verses we studied was 2 Corinthians 10:5:

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God. And we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

I remember choosing this specific verse to memorize early on in my Christian walk because I desperately wanted to rid my mind of the junk that had been collecting there for 27 years.

As I prepared for the study I realized how I had allowed this verse to slip from my memory over time. How foolish! Whether we’ve been a believer for 4 days or 40 years we need to be in the business of demolishing anything that sets itself up against God and taking captive the thoughts the enemy so subtly plants in our minds.

I have renewed my commitment to memorization and meditating on the Word because the moment I begin to think I no longer need to keep these battle verses at the forefront of my mind is the moment I allow pride to rule and I want no part of it.

The verse that brought a hush over last night’s class (and that’s not easy! ha…) was this:

“Evil rarely looks evil until it accomplishes its goal.”

My discernment radar has been raised high. How about yours?
