We had an incident happen in our family several weeks ago and that lousy slug Satan has used it to knock on my door with fear.
Fear is his stinking, rotten, favorite weapon.
Fear can paralyze a person – a God-fearing, Spirit-filled person … so don’t ever think yourself immune because we are not. Satan cannot have our soul but he sure can wreak havoc on our peace and joy.
So what does one do when fear comes knocking on your door?
Number one — engage every single lock in your arsenal.
And, MOST IMPORTANTLY? Engage the sword.
The sword of The Spirit —————————> THE LIVING WORD.

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, ‘Destroy!’ Deuteronomy 33.27
When I’m in spiritual warfare, I get pretty radical. Down and dirty actually. I will not abide him slithering into my mind. I walk around chanting, “JESUS.” I am in a stance of prayer continually – never saying amen. I continuously remind the LORD that we are His and He surrounds us with songs of deliverance.
Keep us O God from the evil one and sanctify us with YOUR TRUTH. John 17.15-16
Don’t expect others to fight your battle – YES, you can bring others in but we are to invest ourselves in this battle of souls. Take no rest. Take no prisoners.
FIGHT LIKE A BELIEVER in JESUS CHRIST.
Swords in hand.
Helmet on heads.
Boots on feet.
Belt on waist.
Breastplate on chest.
Shield in hand.
