I don't like to think that I have any enemies, do you?
I WANT to think that EVERYBODY just simply adores me and couldn't possibly have anything against me.....
let alone treat me badly!
(Do you think I have a bit of a pride problem?)
I got that word "enemies" on my mind one morning as I was spending some time with the Lord, but I didn't focus on somebody who might not like me. My mind trailed off to the things of this world that I allow to interfere with my walk with God. You know stuff like playing one particular crazy, time-consuming game on my cell phone; spending too much time on Pinterest and Instagram; worrying about things that "might" happen; overeating (yes, that's called gluttony and it's in the Bible); just ANYTHING that I put before God.
So how do we avoid allowing those "enemies" consume us and draw us into things of this world?
We put on our armor.
And, that includes our helmet of salvation!
