Under Attack

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

When you hear the words "under attack" what comes to mind? For me I think of the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor or in my own life time, the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks on 9-11. Surprise attacks on American soil are sure attention getters. That is what our enemy wanted in both cases. 

As a believer in Jesus Christ we find ourselves under another kind of attack almost daily. It is called 'Spiritual Warfare' and the attacker is Satan, the great liar, deceiver, killer, and accuser of the brethren. His mission is threefold: to kill, steal, and to destroy. His army are demons and people on Earth he has tricked into unknowingly work for him. Oftentimes when we hear of evil being perpetrated on people through people like Hitler we know Satan had control of him. How else would he do such unspeakable atrocities to the Jewish people? Many churches do not even talk about Satan and choose to brush him under the church rug. Believe you me, he can escape from under any rug, in or out of church. 

Today harden not your heart. Do not feel it is kooky to resist the enemy. He hates the word of God so pick up your Bible and make him mad.

PRAYER: No weapon the enemy forms against me will prosper. It says that in the Bible. I choose to run towards you and run away from evil. In Jesus' name. Amen.
