The enemy’s main objective is to steal, kill and destroy. And, he targets different areas of your life to do so.
The enemy often times attacks 5 specific areas of persons lives. The enemy oftten attacks and targets person’s… 1) prayer life 2) identy 3) mind 4) way of living and 5) gifts from The Lord by launching fiery darts of doubt, discouragement, discontentment and dishonor.
The word encourages us to be wise as serpents and to stand against the wiles (schemes, tricks, tactics, plots and plans) of the devil. We are to stand against the wiles of the devil by wearing the full armor of God and by holding up your shield of faith. Your shield of faith will quench the fiery darts of the devil that he uses to launch attacks.
Know that you have an enemy, that he is targeting you but that you have everything you need to fight and defeat the devil- powers, rulers of darkness, and all spiritual wickedness in high places.
You have an enemy. He is targeting you. But you are more than a conquerer through Christ that loves you.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
