There is a Spiritual Battle Going On

Do you ever notice when you are trying to be a better Christian, that Satan works so hard to get you to mess up? For example, I’ve been thinking a lot lately on how I should act as a Christian. I should control my tongue, control my actions, show kindness to others, etc… So the last couple days I have asked God to help me, especially at work. I work in health-care. I am surrounded by people who are sick, hurting and just plain tired. They voice their frustrations in sometimes unpleasant ways.  I try to listen with empathy, but get offended at the way I am spoken to.  I know deep down, they are not angry at me, but the situation that they or their family member is in.

Sometimes it is hard not to snap back at someone yelling in your face.  I must hold my tongue, but should hold my tongue, because I should worry about how others perceive me.  I want to act like a Christian and not how the world acts. God wants us to have humility and speak with meekness.

Then I realize when I am standing there being yelled at; the true scenario.   Sometimes it is Satan fighting hard to get me to yell back, or to be mean or to become like the world, because he doesn’t want me to have a Christian testimony.  He wants people to view Christians in a negative way.  It is during these times I know who to pray for for help.  Only the Lord Jesus can guide our actions and help us be the kind of Christians we should be.  We need to be like Jesus.  We are here to represent God and his love and compassion for others, despite our situations.

Ephesians 6:12-For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
