Know Your Enemy
To live a victorious life we must know our enemy and understand our personal weaknesses.
Military leaders study the strategies of their enemy as they prepare to defeat them. Sports coaches watch recordings of the opposing team to learn their strengths and weaknesses. We, too, must know our enemy and where he is going to try and defeat us.
Most of us who are followers of Christ know who our enemy is. But often we are unprepared for his attacks because we don't understand our own personal weaknesses.
It helps to spend time reflecting on life to see where we failed and how the enemy got the best of us in the past. Then, with God's help, as we recognize theses areas of weakness we can guard from future attacks.
