Weapons to fight the spiritual realm: use Words of God and Worship songs

Thanksgiving

  • what I enjoyed yesterday: (1) fam morning time: morning at mos with spouse, (2) mom connect: bunkyo lunch connect group, (3) corporate connect: be able to “enjoy” rather than nervous about connect with fpt. same with guest speaker in our nlp study group (4) fam study time: kakomon time with Na focusing on zukei, tiring but at least for her to experience the real level of test. (5) journal time: for long … this journal time has bringing mind-freedom for myself, to be free during the day, when the situation is helpless like now (i felt a sense of helplessness to fight the structural issue in the corporate world: fair credit share or visibility which reveal the common issue at corporate world: conflict at gemba) .. even when the situation feels helpless and unfair .. I was “sherphered” and walked within to be alert of the mental battle, which is very different from the physical battle where you can beat the enemies totally, while in the spiritual battle, the only way is to be alert and protect ourselves instantly and consistently, the spiritual force never be beaten totally .. perhaps until the day Jesus returns and make the world new.

Worship

  • the cross

Read: New identity in Jesus: Fight the Devil with the right weapon: worship & Word of God

  • I must know and use the Word of God in order to defend the truth of our identities in Him. vs. like now I just using gratefulness and “logic” (control vs. uncontrollable) to find my emotions
  • I am accepted
  • I am secure
  • I am significant: (1) Matthew 5:13–14 NIV “I” am the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden (2) John 15:1:5 NIV “I” am already be clean because of the words Jesus has spoken to me. Remain in Jesus, as Jesus also remains in me. .. I will bear much fruit; .. this gave me a sense of moving-forward by God’s wills vs. the Devil tempted me to think I am not and helpless, hopeless (3) 2 Corinthians 5:17–18 NIV if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has comes: the old has gone, the new is here! all this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation

Receive:

  • I am significant. I am shining already in the ways of the Lord. I am the light of the world. Despite the Devil is cheating me into false emotions of hostility, helplessness and made me felt totally helpless and stuck in the world view. But Jesus said that remain in Him and He also remain in me .. this way I will bear fruit (the God-pleased fruit, not my own desired fruits) .. this gave me a great sense of I am moving forward, I am shining in the God’s perspective, I am growing (despite what the Devil tempted me to feel everyday, especially on the bad days).
