Fighting off demons

I love to watch TV on the computer. It's not that I'm TV obsessed - OK, maybe a little - but instead of listening to music like most people do, I like to listen to TV while I work around the house.

I didn't have any shows that intrigued me at the moment, so I found a list of shows to watch online. One of them was "Buffy: The Vampire Slayer." I thought I would give it a try.

I'm not quite sure about it, but today I watched an episode where two girls were studying, and all of a sudden a demon came up behind them. Buffy's friend Willow called out, and Buffy jumped up to quickly kill the demon before it caused any more damage around town.

It made me think about how easy it would be for us if we could see all the demons that are attacking us. Demons are more real than many people know, and they really do attack us. It might not be by physically assaulting us, but it's by tempting us, putting us bad situations or whispering lies in our ears.

If only we could see what they were doing and immediately fight them off, even kill them. We could solve our problems so much faster.

But we can't see demons. So that means we really do need to put on the full armor of God and be aware of the evil temptations in our lives so we can spiritually see the demons and fend them off as quickly as possible - so they don't do any more damage.
