One of the main problems in many relationships today is that people ignore the fact that there is a spiritual battle going on. There is a thief that has come to kill, steal, and destroy in our lives. We have to recognize that the thief is Satan. However, we give him inroads many times. How? By covering our eyes, and allowing ourselves to be deceived. We allow ourselves to ignore his strategies and tactics, and decide to deal with our issues from a natural perspective only.
We have to guard our minds. We have to ask ourselves individually, “What am I feeding my mind on a regular basis? Who is really influencing me? Why do I do what I do?” There are a lot of things out there that influence our thinking and cause us to have the wrong attitude and judgment when dealing with people. Therefore, we need to keep God front and center in every situation. Next time you face a challenge or difficulty with someone in your life, recognize there are other influences at work. Ask for God’s guidance, and grace. He is an ever-present help in a time of need.
