Have you ever wondered why negative things happen to you? Do you have an enemy? Do you know your enemy? Why does that individual take
such role in your life?
What is an enemy?
An enemy is he who causes harm towards you. An enemy wants to steal, kill or destroy you.
Who is the enemy?
I personally say I have no enemies. LIAR! We all have an enemy in common. Its name is Satan; or as others call it “devil”. It is known as a spiritual snake or dragon that comes to destroy our lives. He uses people as tools to be our enemies in person.
For our struggle is not against human opponents, but against rulers, authorities, cosmic powers in the darkness around us, and evil spiritual forces in the heavenly realm.(Ephesians 6:12)
When does it attack?
The enemy usually attacks when there is a huge blessing coming our way. It knows God’s plan and it will try anything for you not to beblessed. For God turns tribulations into blessings and the enemy knows that. Therefore, it knows that even though you are having such a hard time, in the end, you will be blessed.
Why does it attack?
It wants ownership of you. It wants you to disobey and loose your path in life. It wishes to destroy your life for that is its job. It wants you to turn your eyes to the darkness and walk a different path in life.
Breaking it down
The thief comes only to steal, slaughter, and destroy. I’ve come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.John 10:10
There was a young male who had glaucoma and was losing his vision. He didn’t know he had it as he drove the expressway and almost crashed. Thanks to God, he didn’t crash because if so, he would of entered a pit whole of depression for he had a little boy who was under his custody.
Steal- the enemy stole his eyesight
Kill- the enemy used what he stole to make him crash and
Destroy- The enemy tried to destroy both his and his child’s life with what he stole.
Therefore, we can see how the enemy works. What is something that he stole from you? How are you getting it back? We must fight the spiritual battle and recover what is ours. The enemy is beneath Jesus feet. God has given us the authority over the enemy. We are above all evil things.
There was a God fearing woman who was confronted with her inconsistency. She felt so horrible, unwanted thoughts increased and within an hour, she felt suicidal. Therefore, she jumped into a pool that was about 37 degrees. Thanks to God’s mercy, she didn’t drown with a seizure; for he sustained her. Little did she know, she had a last minute conference to attend where a confirmation from the Lord was waiting for her that night and as she attended; the message she left with was that she had a purpose in life for she is an ambassador in Christ and her spiritual blogging should continue. We can clearly see how Satan tried to steal the confirmation that the Lord would give her that night. We can also see how the enemy wanted to kill her both mentally and physically. However, it was already destroying her with the unexpected action it took over her. Therefore, don’t let unclean thoughts in your mind which is where Satan mostly attacks.
