Fighting the Wrong Battles

The Lord spoke to me yesterday that I am like a mighty warrior who has been deceived into fighting the wrong battles.

I immediately thought of Prince Rilian (King Caspian's son in the Narnia book, "The Silver Chair) who was bewitched into fighting for the wrong side (the witch of the underworld).

When I attempt to fight battles of the mind and soul with fleshly strength (devoid of God), I am the deceived warrior fighting for the wrong kingdom; when my identity is not grounded in God or his love, I fight for affirmation that is already mine. Most of the false battles I fight are fighting for what I already have (but don't believe or appropriate).
