Today’s scripture(s) verse:

Ephesians 6:12

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [a]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Every war, great or small, that has ever been fought in the world, has been led by leaders such as Admirals and Generals alike.  But each of these, whether if they won or lost a particular battle, was decided upon one crucial important item, “Intelligence.”  No commander of troops during war time can be an effective fighting force without intelligence concerning the enemy and the battlefield.  So what exactly is this intelligence?  For the Christian, the child of God, the Holy Bible is our intelligence, the bible tells us everything we need to know about the enemy of the saints, Satan.  The bible provides the protection and weapon to defeat and stand against Satan.  Satan has been defeated by Jesus, and we as believers stand in His victory.  Our strength is found in our faith, our power or weapon in the Holy Word of God.  We need to stand and not be fearful of defeated enemy.  God is for us, not against us.
