When the Enemy Knocks

Posted on: 7-15-112016

I think this is a great reminder for all of us!  Notice it says “when” not “if” the enemy starts knocking because none of us are exempt from his visits.  All of us will hear him knock and we have to choose whether or not to open the door and let him in or to let Jesus answer the door for us and send him packing.  Satan loves nothing more than to drag up our past…our past mistakes, our past failures, our past regrets.  He loves to make us open up those doors that we’ve already closed because he knows he can drag up all of our hurts, heartaches, pain, suffering, grief, anger, bitterness, guilt…you get my drift.  He will do anything he can to cause us pain.  He will do anything he can to make us focus on the past because he knows when we focus on the past, we cannot focus on the future.  He knows if we are busy beating ourselves us, we cannot be allowing God to build us up in Him.  He knows that if he can cause us to remember all of the reasons God shouldn’t love us, we cannot comprehend all of the reasons He does.  He knows if he keeps our eyes on our own selves, we cannot keep our eyes on Jesus.  If we are to ever have victory over our past, we have to allow Jesus to open the door when Satan comes calling.  We cannot fight him on our own and win.  It’s only when we allow Christ to do the fighting for us that victory becomes our own.

“Do not be afraid of sudden terror or the ruin of the wicked when it comes, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.” Proverbs 3:25 – 26
