Divide And Conquer

It's an extremely old strategy, but a very effective one: If you want to totally destroy your opponent, you must get in between the relationships they hold dearest in their lives. In a militaristic sense, this means coming between the relationships that soldiers have with each other, as well as the duty they feel of serving their country. This is exactly how the devil does what he does when he invades our lives. Of course, most people aren't even aware that the devil has pulled this off until they've lost everything. Realize, the devil is after your life, and he doesn't care how old you are, how wealthy you are, or what job you have. The devil doesn't operate in that fashion. The only purpose and plan he has for your life is to steal from you, kill you, and destroy your very existance from the face of this earth. Sounds dramatic, I know, but that is the real truth and fact of the matter, and as I've stated already, most people aren't even aware that the devil is doing this to them until they've lost everything. Until they're lying face down in agony and pain. This is not to say that God can't change their whole life around, and restore all that the devil has taken away from them, because He of course do just that. But before God can do this for them, they have to first realize that they need Him in their lives more than they need anything and anyone else, including the job they have and other physical things. All things will come and go in life, but what really matters are the relationships we have with the people whom God brings into our lives, and what we do with those relationships. Meaning, how we handle those relationships, whether or not we are careless and reckless with what God has entrusted to us. And the devil would love nothing more than to take those relationships away from us, to make us think that we are nothing more than utter failures at whatever we try to accomplish in our lives. That way, he can cause us to be divided from those relationships, as well as in our own minds, and this is because he knows that a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. Think on this truth.
