The battle is not with human beings

~Saturday Stories~

I wrote this after reading Shannon Dittemore’s amazing book Angel Eyes

The world is full of
Noises we do not hear
Sights we do not see
Truths we do not understand

We think this world is all there is
But how blind that idea
How ignorant, how destructive
Does God’s Word not warn us
That the battle is not with human beings
But with the powers of darkness
That we as humans do not see
But that are nonetheless existent
Yet let us not forget
A truth so bright it blinds in a new way
That God has power over all
And the enemy has no chance

Against the might of the Almighty 

"You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world." 1 John 4:4 (NIV)
