Having lived for this long, never have I ever heard that the enemy loves or likes you.
I am not talking about the people or the person you have ‘tagged’ as the enemy.
No! THE REAL ENEMY! The one who wants to remain hidden and faceless and unassuming, the one that the bible describes as cunning, deceitful, and wicked! Not the one with tails and a pitchfork that we were shown in Sunday school as little children or the movies where they enacted the enemy as someone relatable.
Unfortunately, he isn’t, he does not like you! Or your offspring or anything that has to do with YOU!.
His goal is to continually try to disapprove of God’s words to you, make God seem like he doesn’t care about you.
His work is captured in this regard; to steal from you, to kill you, and to destroy you.
When I say YOU, I mean everything about you, starting from the breath of life that God breathed into man, to his Talents, Gifting, Call, Purpose, Destiny, EVERYTHING you can think of that God gave you, he wants it.
So why are we as a people, as a generation believing his lies? Enjoying his company? Allowing him access to things about us when we know his goal?
Why do we think that his lie is the truth? Why do we believe him? Don’t you remember how much hurt he has caused you? Don’t you know how much he has stolen from you and still keeps stealing from you?
If you knew that a guest you did not invite or maybe invited (through sin, unbelief, e.t.c) was coming to your house to take all that you have laboured for all these years; or that which your Father gave you as an inheritance; if you knew all this, what would your preventive measure be?
You do not have to think too much, we already have a preventive measure in the person of #JESUS, his blood, his word and he is daily knocking on the door of your heart to let him in, so he can be ALL that you need, your spokes-person, deliverer, guide, counsellor, friend, father, keeper, saviour, teacher, the list is endless!
Why would you choose the words of someone who doesn’t CARE about YOU over someone who DOES CARE?
HOW TOXIC THIS IS!
Spin the narrative, open up to the one who’s knocking gently on your heart’s door, who gives you life, who teaches you patiently, who strengthens you, and who is there even when the ENEMY requests for that which GOD gave you.
GOD CARES AND HE CAN BE TRUSTED!
