Scripture Reading: 2 Corinthians 3:6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
Reflections: In the realms of the spirit, demons are at work to disrupt the course of our livelihood on earth. However, they will only be successful if the one they oppose fails to resist them. In resisting demons and their works, the Apostle Paul highlights the need for the child of God to live in complete obedience to the will of God. He tells the church to be ever ready ‘to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled’. Obedience speaks of compliance. Compliance is the action of complying to a command or standards given. Thus despite your given superior spiritual authority and weapons, your victory in spiritual warfare is dependent on how well your lifestyle complies with scriptures. This will save you a lot of trouble and casualties on the battlefield. Reflect on the case of the 7 sons of Sceva who fled out of the house naked and wounded after trying to confront a demon (Acts 19:14-16). Keep living a life of complete obedience!
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to live in complete obedience to your word.
Confession: I live a life of complete obedience to the will of God.
