The Strength of Our Enemies
Mighty are those who would destroy me.
We are weak. Our enemies are strong. Without the Lord—if he were not on our side—we would be consumed.
- Psalm 18:17; He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.
- Psalm 142:6; Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.

We ought to consider who our enemies really are. Whether troubles come as a result of circumstance, deliberate cruelty of another person, or the unintentional actions of a brother, we do not wrestle against flesh and blood.
- 1 Peter 5:8; Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Think soberly about the ambition of the devil. He is persistent. He is subtle. He is devoted to your destruction. And, he is very real.
- John 10:10; The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.
