Know Thy Enemy: Ephesians 6:11-12
If time heals all wounds than why is there wounds that time does not heal?
That’s because time does not heal all wounds, it’s God that heals all wounds. One of the enemies most common tactic is working through people to get to you! It is important to be aware of the enemies tactics to protect yourself from the devils hidden agenda. Here are 5 tatics the enemy uses.
The sneakiest tactics that the enemy uses is your spouse. The bible says “ Do not be yoked together with unbelievers for what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? – 2 Corinthians 6:14
It is important to be equally yoked to protect yourself from unnecessary pain. A lot of time us women want to be the saviour and try to help that guy we have feelings for we end up loosing ourselves trying to help him find himself. This could hinder our relationship with Christ especially when God warned us about this individual already. Listen to God leave that person right where you found them.
- Brings up your past:
The devil is a liar. The enemy will bring up things from your past to distract you. You still remember things that you want to forget about from your past like your father not being around ,betrayal, heartbreaks whatever it is you need to let go and let God. Give it all to God he is in complete control. Talk to God about what is hurting you.
- Comes with your mind:
It is important to put the helmet of salvation on. A lot of people are losing their minds to mental illness. I am here to tell you whichever mental illness that you are suffering from either it is PTSD, anxiety, depression you are not alone. Mental illness is not a chemical imbalance or a genetic disorder and it is not all in your head like the doctor said. It is a demonic attack from the enemy. I can relate I suffered from depression, anxiety, and PTSD for years, I felt hopeless I felt like no one could understand what I was going through. I went to every hospital closest to me to get the “professional” help I thought I needed, but no one could help me. I remember the doctor telling me that I am going to have to cope with anxiety for the rest of my life. I shedded a tear and said to myself I am not going to live my life like this despite what the doctor says. I felt like I was losing my mind and that it was going to stay like that for the rest of my life. I thought I needed antidepressants to help me but no doctor would give me antidepressants for some reason. But then Christ came and rescued me with his sovereign hand he healed me from depression, anxiety, PTSD and promised me that what I been through it will never happen again. By the stripes I was healed I haven’t had an anxiety attack since 2014 the depression and PTSD went away for good.
You may feel like you’re dying inside there is no escape PRAY the bible says “Come and let us return to the LORD; for he has torn, but he will heal us, he has stricken, but he will bind us up”- Hosea 6:1
- Studies your sin
The devil studies your sin he knows what your weakness are. That sin may be , adultery, pornography or . Whatever that sin may be call it out by its name. The bible says “and Joshua said unto Achan, “ My son give I pray thee glory to the Lord God of Israel and make confession unto him, and me how thou hast done hide not from me. – Joshua 7:19
Don’t hide the sin let the Lord know you acknowledge what you did wrong. He knows what you did of course but wants to know if you acknowledge what you did wrong. Daily is necessary.
These are the 4 tactics the enemy uses to distract you from your spiritual walk with Christ. Keep the devil at your feet by studying his tactics and fighting the enemy with the word of God.
