We have all been attacked by the enemy before. Whether it was physically or mentally, it affects us in some negative way. Without God, it's like going into battle without armor. The Bible and the helmet of salvation can be our best defense against our enemies.
Evil comes in many shapes and forms, and in the Bible the Apostle John warned us to not believe every spirit we hear because they may be evil. The more we read the Bible the more we can discern the truth from error. It would be easier if we could see the foe all the time, but unfortunately we cannot. We must test or try the spirits to see if they are truly of God. Easier said than done, but it is always good to be aware.
Below are 7 Bible verses to help overcome attacks from the enemy:
Revelation 12:11: "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."
Ephesians 6:11: "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil."
Ephesians 6:12: "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
1 John 4:1: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."
2 Corinthians 11:13-14: "For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve."
2 Corinthians 4:3-4: "And even if our Gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world 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 Corinthians 2:11: "In order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes."
