Topical Spiritual Warfare Fiery Darts
Book Summary: Have you ever been a victim of your own thinking? Have thoughts ever paralyzed you or driven you to do something you knew was wrong or, at least, just not good for you? Are you susceptible to those who question the stand you take for God to the point that you become more concerned with what they think than you do with what God thinks? Have you ever experienced the exhilaration of making a commitment to God, only to weaken in your resolve a short time later? Has confusion ever been so great in your mind that you found you were frozen in your steps and unable to move forward or even back to God? Do you find yourself growing less and less sensitive to sin? These types of questions are troubling to any believer, of course! And a walk of faith troubled by any or all of these questions can result in a life characterized by very few peaks and far too many valleys.
Satan has at his disposal a vast arsenal of weapons with which to wage war against God’s people. While it is obvious he often draws upon weapons such as war, evil rulers, persecution, discrimination, poverty, adultery, murder, and broken homes, to highlight only a few, there is one weapon that is so subtle many Christians fail to recognize it as a weapon at all! This weapon is negative thinking or what Janet has come to call fiery darts, a weapon seemingly insignificant yet incredibly dangerous. It is the purpose of this book to expose this weapon and reveal how its destructiveness can be subdued.
As God exposed the weapons of fiery darts that for years Satan had skillfully used against Janet, her spiritual walk underwent a dramatic transformation. By teaching her what fiery darts were and how to counter their attack, her walk along the path God had set before her so many years before was illuminated to such an extent that her skill in recognizing Satan’s tactics dramatically improved along with her ability to successfully fight against the fiery darts.
The first half of John 10:10 reveals Satan’s intentions toward mankind, “A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy.” (HCSB) Once Satan’s intentions were exposed and the tactics he was so skillfully using to produce such defeat in Janet’s life were revealed, then her instruction on how to counter these attacks began in earnest. She was taught how to bring the power of God’s Word to bear upon the fiery darts’ assault and, in so doing, the second half of John 10:10, “I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance” (HCSB) began to transform the character of her walk with God…
There is a verse in Hosea 4:6 that succinctly describes the present day dilemma for many Christians, “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” (KJV) Glean the knowledge contained within the pages of this book and secure the abundant life you were meant to enjoy.
