Don’t give the devil a chance.
1 Peter 5:8
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
The plans of the devil has always been to thwart the agenda of God for your life. He comes to steal your joy, kill your faith and destroy your convictions through wickedness, because he knows that God has only the best in stored for you. Thank God we are not ignorant of his devices, but for many we fail to see this cunny agenda of the devil, and instead choose to fight the wrong enemy thinking we are solving the problem not knowing we are making it worse.
One day I had a misunderstanding with my younger brother and before you could say Jack Robinson, the small misunderstanding had escalated to a big issue, emotional as I am as a result that day I couldn’t pray as usual, I felt very sad.
It was later that the holy Spirit whispered to me that I was looking at the wrong enemy, I was hesitant to admit it because everything points to the fact that I was clearly misunderstood. It was clear and simple, “Humans is not your enemy!” And that is what most of us do. Like me, we are always carried away with the situation trying to how best to deal with it. Human beings are not your enemy.
When I later discovered what the devil had planned for my family, I stopped all and stood to up pray. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.(Ephesians 6:12)
We have pampered the devil enough, RESIST THE DEVIL, it is time to uphold our weapons of warfare, for the weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. [2 Corinthians 10:4]
Our sure way of defeating him for us hit the rod while it’s still hot and that is to RESIST THE DEVIL and he will runaway from us. For we have overcome by the blood of Jesus Christ.
God bless you.
