One of the things I love most about how God made the world is the way He embedded deep truths inside of the human experience, so that we might discover Him simply by living our lives.
Chapter 8 proposes that there is a parallel between physical and spiritual self-defense, and that this should not surprise us. After all, God gives us armor to wear, which ought to be a sign that there is an enemy is on the prowl!
The tools we need to fight against a spiritual enemy are ours through the Word and the Spirit of God. Today, I’m wondering how being present and alert to your surroundings might serve as a means of spiritual self-defense?
And if you’ve ever taken a self-defense class, are there things you learned there that might benefit others – physically or spiritually?
