Our Real Enemy

by Glen Elliott | series |

In our struggle with the power of sin in our lives, we have to know what we are up against that makes it so hard. We continually struggle with how we react to our hurts, why we have bad habits and hang-ups that don’t seem to go away or addictions that trap us. The reason for the existence of sin and the power it has in us and over us is because there is evil in this world. The devil is real. He takes forms both personal and impersonal that can look respectable and safe. He uses lies and works through people and situations. But we can’t forget who our real enemy is. It isn’t the people or circumstances that hurt us. To overcome the power of sin, we have to have an attitude and hold to a belief:  we can resist the evil one. We are not victims of the power of sin. We are not powerless. God has intervened to help us.
