Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Word: 1 John 2:16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
Thought: Know who you are in Christ Jesus, and know your enemy!
So we are in a battle against three enemies – the world, the flesh and the devil.
The world comes at us from the outside bombarding us with counterfeits to truth.
The flesh comes at us from the inside.
The devil is constantly and continuously attacking us, usually working through the world and the flesh rather than mounting a full-on attack.
All three of them try to subdue us without fighting. They attack us at our weak points. To stand firm in our battle, we need to know the truth and permit the truth to penetrate into our minds.
”You know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8: 32

Have a Victorious walk in Christ
Your strength will equal your days. Deuteronomy 33: 25
