Another World

Standing on the beach, looking at the water on a calm day, all appeared peaceful and beautiful.  Yet once I donned my snorkel and goggles and looked beneath the surface I saw an amazing transformation!  Beneath the calm surface sea creatures darted about and a multitude of plant life grew!

So, too, from my perspective, life may appear calm outwardly but beyond what I see, there is amazing activity taking place.  On a different, heavenly realm lies an unseen world where spiritual forces interact.  Here, angels and demons struggle unseen by my eyes.

It is not a mere set of goggles for viewing and a snorkel to help me breath that I need.  To discern the activity and struggles taking place on this spiritual plane, I need spiritual equipment.  I need God's Word to discern the truth of the forces I wrestle.  I need prayer to help me survive.  As the snorkel keeps open a passageway to the air, so prayer keeps a passageway to God open.

PRAYER: Dearest Father, guide me through the unseen forces of spiritual struggles.

“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,” Ephesians 6:12 KJV

Today’s devotion is by Karen Whiting, speaker and author of ten books and hundreds of articles.  She wrote God’s Girls, the best selling inspirational craft book series for teen girls.  A mother, grandmother, and wife, Karen lives on the eastern shore of Maryland.
