One of my missions for this blog is to inspire women to dig into God’s Word and to seek Him in prayer. I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of the devil wreaking havoc in my life. As I have said before, he knows where your goat is tied–exactly where to hit you so that it hurts the most. Satan knows your weaknesses and your insecurities. He knows exactly what strategies to use to tear you down and make you ineffective for the Kingdom.
That’s why I am super-excited to add a new dimension to this blog. For the next few weeks, I am going to be reading and reviewing Priscilla Shirer’s new book, Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan for Serious, Specific, and Strategic Prayer for B&H Publishing Group.
In this book, Shirer addresses ten areas in which the enemy directs his strategies against us:
Strategy 1–Against Your Passion
Strategy 2–Against Your Focus
Strategy 3–Against Your Identity
Strategy 4–Against Your Family
Strategy 5–Against Your Confidence
Strategy 6–Against Your Calling
Strategy 7–Against Your Purity
Strategy 8–Against Your Rest and Contentment
Strategy 9–Against Your Heart
Strategy 10–Against Your Relationships
Shirer says this is the introduction:
“Because this is war. The fight of your life. A very real enemy has been strategizing and scheming against you, assaulting you, coming after your emotions, your mind, your man, your child, your future. In fact, he’s doing it right this second. Right where you’re sitting. Right where you are.
But I say his reign of terror stops here. Stops now. He might keep coming, but he won’t have victory anymore.
Because it all starts failing when we start praying” (2).
So, join me for a short review of each of these strategies every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday for the next three and a half weeks. I need this book, and I bet you do, too. Women of God, let’s be encouraged to stand up for what is rightfully ours in the Lord. Let’s put on our armor and prepare to fight back. Satan is no match for the mighty God that we serve.
So let’s get ready to learn, grow, and pray. Because this is war.
