Psalm 18:30-36

In a recent Bible study, we were learning about breaking down strongholds we (with Satan's help) have put up in our lives. The point was brought up that too many times we focus on fighting the war against Satan. While we do have to war against Satan, it should not be our focus. Our focus should always be on spending time and growin closer to the One who can help us defeat Satan and blow up those strongholds. When our focus is on spending time with God, we are closer and closer to godliness which will help us defeat our enemy. As always, God's word says it best:

As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the Lord is flawless.
He is a shield
for all who take refuge in Him.
For who is God besides the Lord?
And who is the Rock except our God?
It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
He enables me to stand on the heights.
He trains my hands for battle;
My arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You give me your shield of victory,
and Your right hand sustains me;
You stoop down to make me great.
You broaden the path beneath e,
so that my ankles do not turn.
-Psalm 18:30-36 (NIV)
