2 Corinthians 4-6~ Day 73~ The devil blinds people! πŸ‘ΉπŸ˜³

Imagine the spiritual warfare going on around us all the time!
It is so weird for me to read, "But if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.  In their case, the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God." (2 Cor. 4:4)

The god of this age (Satan) has blinded people!! Wow!  That is radical!  It reminds me of the verse, "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this darkness, against evil, spiritual forces in the heavens."(Eph. 6:12)

Yet, God gave us Christians a role in this spiritual battle!  Like Paul, we have the calling, "to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a share among those who are sanctified by faith in me (Jesus)." (Acts 26:18)

What an honor to be able to play a role in the spiritual battle going on in other peoples lives!  But, if it's a battle, I better equip myself with the armor listed in Eph. 6:14-17 and pray, pray, pray!!
"Pray at all times in the Spirit with every prayer and request, and stay alert with all perseverance and intersection for all the saints." (Eph. 6:18)
