It's so easy to get caught up in daily grind. Clock in. Clock out. Work, home, school, repeat. We get caught up in the mundane and we forget we have an enemy who wants to steal, kill and destroy us! It lulls us into a false sense of security and spiritual sleep.
I think the greatest weapon used against us is the mundane. I mean, if the enemy appeared to us as a big red demon we would wake up and swing our axe! But no, he is quiet and sneaks around trying to set ambushes and snares in our daily routine then blames it on someone else. He whispers to us in our own voice. Wake up. Pay attention to your thought life and mindless cruise control. We have an enemy. Be on the look out! Watch out for pot holes. Take charge of your choices. Remember we are spiritual beings living in a physical world. We are children of the Most High and the enemy is not your co worker, but the devil. We have the ability to make good and powerful choices.We are called to spiritual warfare which begins in our minds, even if our feet are still on the ground.
