There Really Is an Enemy

From Psalm 56

Hope from Todays Reading:

”On the day I call for help, my enemies will be defeated. I know that God is on my side.” (Psalm 56:9 NCV)

I struggle connecting with a verse like this. My enemies? Who are they? Do I have enemies? I mean, I'm just going through life, doing my work, making breakfast, paying a bill, dressing my daughter. I'm not, like, hiding away in a cave the way David did. I'm not running away from people trying to take my life.

I very easily and very often forget there is an enemy after my soul.

"Control yourselves and be careful! The devil, your enemy, goes around like a roaring lion looking for someone to eat" (1 Peter 5:8 NCV).

I'll be honest. I have a hard time believing this verse. I very much believe in the God I cannot see, but I don't (always) believe in this enemy. I most often live like I'm the only enemy of my soul, and if I can get my desires and needs sorted out, I'll be okay. This is a lie! Someone really is out to get me. Someone really is out to get you. Be aware. Be careful. Be prayerful.

But also, be hopeful. God is on your side.

Hopefully yours,
