Spiritual combat marks every Christian life daily.
My child, when you come to serve the Lord, prepare yourself for trials. Sirach 2:1
When you say ‘yes’ to God, allowing Him to use and change you, you must be ready to fight against the forces that will work against you. Spiritual combat is real, yet unseen. The enemy attacks from all angles in a bid to dissuade you from doing the work you are set to do. He uses circumstances, doubts, and people to corrupt your mission.
As confirmed Catholics, we should be aware of spiritual combat and there is no way we can avoid it. We should be prepared, vigilant and courageous and arm ourselves with the right weapons. We cannot do this all alone. Our Church community is there to help and support us.
