The enemy of your soul is not playing around, so why are you?
It’s really naive to think you won’t have to “fight the good fight of faith” to hold onto the seeds of revelation truth you have received from the Word of God. The thief, the enemy of your soul (satan, the father of lies, the deceiver), comes to steal, kill and destroy – to steal the truth, the promises of God in your heart, your faith, your peace, and your joy (which ultimately steals your strength). As a born again believer in Christ, the enemy knows he cannot steal your eternal destination which has been sealed by your faith and trust in the finished work of Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross; however, he still schemes and sets traps to derail you from fulfilling God’s purpose in your life. The enemy’s desire is to keep you from experiencing the Father’s amazing grace and being used as an instrument of His love and light in a dark world, and to ultimately kill and destroy your life. Your enemy is not playing around. So why are you? Are you aware you are in a battle for your life? Or have you just settled in to literally being like the “walking dead” or to sort of a “whatever will be will be” attitude? What are you allowing the enemy to steal from you that Jesus shed His blood to give you? Do you have on your armor or do you even know what that means?* Stop playing around, take up your armor warrior son or daughter and choose LIFE today! Jesus paid too high of a price for you not to experience abundant life today!
John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. – Jesus Christ
He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 1 John 5:12
