Redeemed & Restored: Recognizing Enemy Tactics

EP 53

“Close the door on the devil!”

How well can you recognize the enemy’s tactics? Truth is our armor, but blindness brought on my the world can cause us to miss what unwelcome onslaughts are coming our way. Arm yourself with the fear of the Lord, God’s faithfulness, and an in-depth understanding of the tricks of darkness.

Episode Verses

  • Job 28:23-25
  • 2 Corinthians 2:11
  • 1 John 5:4

Quotes from the Episode:

  • “He loves when we go to bed angry and open the door wide to his influence.”
  • “He wants to replace the fear of the Lord with the fear of the future or the unknown.”
  • “The best way for us to live a vibrant life with Christ is to know God intimately and at the same time to recognize the enemy’s tactics in our lives so that we can turn away from evil and gain wisdom by growing in the fear of the Lord.”

Welcome, I'm Athena!

I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.

Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!

The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.

Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
