Listen to my concerns, God, and protect me from my terrible enemies. Keep me safe from secret plots of corrupt and evil gangs. Their words cut like swords, and their cruel remarks sting like sharp arrows. They fearlessly ambush and shoot innocent people. They are determined to do evil, and they tell themselves, "Let's set traps! No one can see us." They make evil plans and say, "We'll commit a perfect crime. No one knows our thoughts." But God will shoot his arrows and quickly wound them. They will be destroyed by their own words, and everyone who sees them will tremble with fear. They will be afraid and say, "Look at what God has done and keep it all in mind." May the LORD bless his people with peace and happiness and let them celebrate.
Psalm 64: 1 - 10
The attacks of Satan on followers of Jesus Christ often consist of simply words and cruel remarks! The Enemy of all that is good and right wants you to be discredited so that you cannot spread the amazing message of Jesus Christ! The Devil wants you to be seen by all around as a person not to be believed.
If Satan destroys your health or even takes your life, he simply turns you into a martyr for Jesus and it defeats the purpose of the Enemy. But if he can destroy your reputation and your credibility, then everything you have done for Jesus or have said about the Lord comes into question.
When you are in the bullseye of Satan's target pray that "God will shoot his arrows and quickly wound" those who are coming against you. Watch as they are being "destroyed by their own words."
"Lord Jesus, thank You that I am not alone in the battle against Satan. And with You Lord Jesus, there is no question who will win that battle. Praise Your Holy Name now and forever. Amen."
