Spiritual Warfare: Overcoming the Enemy

The first rule of battle is this: know your enemy. A thorough knowledge of the opponent’s strength, his probable line of attack, and his tactics are vital to achieving victory. So how complete and accurate is your understanding of your enemy, the devil? Did you even know you had an enemy?

The Bible clearly shows that every one of us lives in the midst of a spiritual battle, whether or not we realize it. Yet many—even many believers—make the mistake of dismissing the enemy as a benign cartoon character with horns and a tail. Others become preoccupied with the enemy, fearfully focusing on his power rather than living in the reality of God’s strength. As you’ll discover in the weeks ahead, neither approach reflects the battle-ready perspective we need to walk daily in victory.

It is imperative that we have accurate information about our enemy, who is bent on destroying our ability to effectively serve God. For the next six weeks, you will dig into the Word of God to discover the truth about the devil for yourself. Knowing this truth will enable you to stand firm when you encounter the enemy!

    Did you know that you have an enemy attacking you every day, every minute of your life? If you are like me, you will answer YES! It seems some days would be better if we never rolled out of bed. This is what the authors talk about in this six-week Bible study. Satan is out to destroy out relationship with the Lord, and we need to be ready for his attacks. I especially enjoyed week four in this study using Job 1:1 through Job 2:10 telling how Satan's attacks cost Job everything he had, but Job still trusted God through it all. Satan may attack, but God is still in control as you will see in this study.

    This is another wonderful study from Kay Arthur Ministries. This is one of the 6-week, 40-minute, no-homework studies for those who have limited time for studies, such as a lunch-time Bible study group. And it is designed to complete the entire study in class, with no before and after class assignments.

    As I read through this Bible study I became more aware of how Satan is on the attack constantly. Even though these studies seem pretty simply written, they are full of scripture and information that will help the reader to be aware of how Satan works. I like the fact that there are questions to answer and discuss because this reinforces the scriptures we read in the study. Just reading the study gave me a wealth of information; now I plan to go through the study with friends as it is designed to further my knowledge on this issue of Satan in our lives.

    I highly recommend this study for your small groups, wherever they may be. You will not be disappointed in this wonderful book!
