Understanding the Enemy's Schemes

"Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the
Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking

for some victim to devour. Take a firm stand against him, and be strong
in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over
the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are." (1 Peter 5:8-9, NLT)

"He was a murderer from the beginning and has always hated the truth.
There is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character;
for he is a liar and the father of lies." (John 8:44, NLT)

OTHER SCRIPTURES: Psalm 143:3-4; John 10:10; Acts 10:38; 2 Corinthians
2:11; 2 Corinthians 11:14; 1 John 3:8; Revelation 12:17

WHAT JESUS MIGHT SAY TO YOU:

Satan will press you...he knows exactly which buttons to push. He'll do
anything to keep you from all that is worthy of your attention. He will attack
your heart, the core of who you are. If anything is good or beautiful or
life-giving, he'll try to take it from you. Why? Because he's afraid of you.
He knows exactly who I have created you to be. You're a threat to him!

Please understand how Satan works. His schemes may seem complex
and twisted, but they're actually quite childish and simple. He is just
waving his arms around, shouting, "Look over here!" to distract you,
scare you, and get you to take your eyes off me. He'll do anything to
keep you from the unfathomable love and great adventure I have for you.

He knows your weaknesses and insecurities. Does this sound familiar?
"I can't do that because..." or "I'm terrible at this..." or "They're trying to
hurt my feelings..." or "I'm not good enough," etc.? Do NOT listen or
agree! That's Satan! He strikes at the very core of your emotions, your
insecurities, your identity.

Never respond by giving him your time or attention. Recognize the lies.
Turn your eyes back to me. Remember who you are, who I made you
to be. Don't let him fool you. I will help you fight! We have already won
the war. We can take him.

Your Defender, Jesus
