As we get closer to God, the enemy will do anything and everything in his power to pull us away. Sometimes he’ll use the people we love, to do so! Have you ever noticed that when you’re trying to kick a bad habit, the enemy will send someone in your life who has the same bad habit? or when you decide to be celibate, every ex in your past suddenly loves you and wants you back? The more you try to do right, the more the enemy will tempt you to do wrong!
Isaiah 54:17 says: ”No weapon formed against you shall prosper.”
If you stay dedicated to God, He will not allow the enemy to have Victory over you! He’ll give you the strength and courage you need to resist temptation. Stand firm, Stay in the word, and Start praising God for what He is about to do!
Lord, Keep us away from the enemy’s trap, Protect us from our enemies, and Stray us away from those who tempt us to do wrong! In Jesus name, Amen
