The Real Enemy

So many times we don’t understand who our enemy is. We think it’s the people around us, but the Bible says, “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” (Ephesians 6:12).

Your enemy is not a Republican or a Democrat. He’s not the IRS, or your wife or your wife’s family. He’s not the pornographer, the liquor baron, or the drug pusher. These are all flesh and blood.

So often the reason we don’t win the battle is because we never show up for the war with the real enemy—the devil. He’s clever and secretive. Jesus said this about the devil: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).
