The Unseen Enemy In Our Lives 

There’s a time in our lives where giving up comes so much easier than wanting to remain in the game. Life is tough and people have become so cruel and cold hearted. It’s a battle of the mind to stay strong and courageous. 

While reading an article this week, I came across this reminder – There are five things that it’s impossible to recover:

  1. A stone after its thrown
  2. A word after its said
  3. Time after its gone
  4. A person after they die
  5. An occasion after its missed

Living with regrets creates darkness all around us. If it’s impossible to recover some things in life – should we not get over it and refuse to lose any more sleep over it. Somebody got to stop the train of thoughts from wrecking you…. and fortunately the choice is in your hands. 

What are some of the Unseen Enemies in your life that causes you to want to quit:

  • Perfectionism 
  • Brokenness 
  • Discouragement 
  • Regret 
  • Negative mental chatter
  • Guilt
  • Hopelessness 
  • Denial 
  • Blame game
  • Complaining 
  • Criticism 
  • Comparison 
  • Fear
  • Intimidation 
  • Failure 
  • People
  • Excuses

I’m certain you can keep adding to this list. 

Listed above is what I would like to label as your ‘Unseen Enemies’ that secretly war against you. Where do they do all the dirty work? In your minds. 

They can be found actively at work in your waking and sleeping moments – 24/7. Our mind is an open playground for the enemy IF left UNGUARDED. 

Our thoughts are silent killers to our dreams, marriages, family lives, relationships, and anything that will rob us of our happiness and success. 

What are some of the Symptoms: 

  • Tears
  • Tiredness 
  • Withdrawal 
  • Hatred 
  • Jealousy 
  • Emotional outbursts 
  • Anger
  • Suicidal thoughts 
  • Insomnia 
  • Resentment 

Can I reassure you anymore that whenever things are broken in our lives – it’s WISDOM to consult with our Creator. 

He is the only true and Living Reedemer of life who has all the power to correct our imperfections, and those secret things that tries to mentally hold us hostage and set us FREE as a once caged bird. 

God’s Recovery Plan is available to everyone who seeks His help. He’s given to each and everyone of us an open plan found within the blue prints of His Word. 

He says, 

“Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined] 
Be alert and cautious at all times. 

That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour.” 1 PETER‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭AMP


“You, Lord, give true peace

You give peace to those who depend on you. 

You give peace to those who trust you.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭26:3‬ ‭ICB‬‬

“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds …

Meditating on things:

    • true
    • noble
    • reputable
    • authentic
    • compelling
    • gracious
    • the best, not the worst
    • the beautiful, not the ugly
    • things to praise, not things to curse. 
    • Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized
    • Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.” Philippians‬ ‭4:8-9‬ ‭MSG‬‬

    The only regret you will have is, refusing to trust God with your future plans and dreams. 

    Satan has come to steal, kill and destroy. Jesus has come to give life and to give life more abundantly ✝️
