Know Your Opponent. Satan is your real adversary. His methods are predictable. He incites the violent nature of men against you. He introduces thoughts of hopelessness that blind you to the Rewards of Overcoming. He is easily demoralized with the Weapon of Praise. He flees when you resist him.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places,” (Ephesians 6:12).
