If you ever played a game than you know this just as I do. When you come to a level or boss that just seems impossible to beat.As if the game developers intentionally created this level or boss so you wont be able to progress further to beat the game.Yet you know that this obstacle presents a challenge that just draws you in to beat it because you know great rewards will be gained afterwards.
The same can be said about persistent sin in your life you know the one’s that seemed like a one and done thing but overtime it became a habit an addiction that seems as though you will never overcome them. You’ve tried everything in your strength to overcome it but nothing seems to change. Well one of the problems is that you can’t fight it off in your own strength. You also should not let this battle deplete you mentally to the point that you have lost all determination and desire to see a end to this. See everyday we fight enemies yet these enemies are unseen.They attack you mentally, emotionally, spiritually and often times use others to attack you physically.These enemies or “bosses” are spiritual forces and principalities, rulers governed by evil and darkness (Ephesians 6:12).
So how do we defeat something that which is unseen??? We must ask God to protect us Spiritually with His armor and to fight back the enemy attacks which are lies and deception with the Word of God (Ephesians 6:13-18). This is equivalent to destroying a boss by attacking at it’s core or weak spots. Know the pattern and target of your persistent sin and attack at the root of the problem. Remember no enemy is too big or more powerful than God. Victory is imminent you just need the faith to see it through. Protect your thought life and nourish your being with God’s word daily and walk by the Spirit so you wont gratify the things of the flesh (Galatians 5:16) and know that a more blessed and fulfilled life lies ahead.
