The Attack and the Victory

2 Corinthians 10:4 the weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.

The Lord showed me several years ago that the reason I struggle with sin (namely porn and lust) is because I don’t use all of the tools he has provided me with.  What are the tools?  Worship, prayer, the word, relationships and one more 2 Cor. 10:5. 

Yesterday as I was sitting at my desk working,   it came on me.  The want the need however you want to look at it.  I was on the road for a big fall.  How did I get there?  Sneak attack,  I was not doing anything wrong.   In my mind it was a blatant attack by the enemy.  All of the sudden the images and thoughts were there.  I will give the enemy credit for this one.

I was terrified.  I know who I am and I am not that person anymore.   I sent out a text to my wife and a friend to pray.  Neither could talk.  I had worship playing in the back ground.  I begin to pray and quote scripture and I read in the word.  I did 2 Cor 10:5.  I took the thoughts captive.  What happened next was extraordinary.  I laid back in my chair and turned up the worship music.  I got still and just worshiped Him.  I don’t know how much time went by …. Not long maybe 7 minutes.  I knew it was over.   I opened my eyes and the attack was over and the feelings I had were gone and they did not come back.  I went on the rest of the day and remained at my desk and finished my work. 

Thank you Jesus!

I did them all Worship, the word, prayer, relationships and 2 cor. 10:5

Radical obedience always precedes the miraculous.
