verse of the day

My enemy has appeared. [ Hebrews 13 v 5-6 ]

We have had a dry spell, then we have had some needful rain, but this has brought, an old enemy on the scene, the garden slug. Yes every gardener knows about this little enemy, of course the gardener faces other enemies.
Green fly, the black spot that appears on roses, they must not be ignored
As we face this day as Christians we need to on our guard against our enemies, the world, the flesh, and the devil. An enemy is one who wants to do us harm, he may try and pull the wool over our eyes, seek to deceive us.
The enemies  Christians face wants to enslave us, but ultimately wants to destroy our spiritual well being. If we give into him we are only asking for trouble, serious trouble, all that glitters is not real gold, it may be fools gold.
Our enemies may pretend to be our friend, like Judas pretended to be the friend of Jesus, while all the time he waited his opportunity to destroy our Saviour. Here is the important thing we can by Gods grace defeat the enemies of our soul ,in our weakness we can be strong in the Lord.[Eph 6 v10],remember this is a spiritual battle the arm of flesh shall fail us[Judges
16v20] Let us remember we have a Saviour who is with us, when everyone
had forsaken Paul, he declared,' But the Lord stood at my right side and gave me strength''.[2 Timothy 4 v 16].

                           In heavenly armour we'll enter the land
                           the battle belongs to the Lord.
                           When the power comes in like a flood
                           the battle belongs to the Lord
                           When the enemy presses in hard do not fear
                           the battle belongs to the Lord
                            [Words by J. O. Collins]
