What are you doing to avoid your enemy?

Dolphins often sleep with one eye open in order to remain wary of possible predators in their area.

As Believers, we should be just as aware of our enemy.  I know that I develop impatience in high traffic areas. In order to avoid my enemy, I often ignore the straight shot to a destination and choose a slower-paced residential area. It lacks traffic, stop lights and, for me, aggravation. Going the few miles out of my way means I arrive at my destination without the irritation.

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. 1 Corinthians 16:13

Are you aware of your lurking enemy? How do you avoid it?



  1. Oh my goodness,Gail. Your arrow hit the mark in my heart this morning. And I confess it is sin. I go at such a pace that I’m sure there’s a bulls eye on my backside and I’m fair game for the enemy of my soul. Today I’ve already run laps in my mind of all that must be accomplished. Taking a longer, more peaceful road of travel never occurred. Until your words pierced my heart.

    I will step back, take a deep breath and ask God for a different route this day.”DiAne

    1. I wrote this post last week and TODAY it hit the mark for me also. God knew I’d need it MYself. Praying our roads level out today!

  2. I agree with Ms. Gates; I think this applies here too. I run at such a high pace I could keep up with Greyhounds! It helps to remember to keep an eye out for my predator and learn to take an easier route.
