Enemy argument: God doesn't care about your petty little life. He's too busy with bigger issues. In fact, He remains at a distance, uninvolved with his creation anymore. He no longer gives individuals guidance.
How many times have you heard that from other people or even had the thought pop into your mind? Especially when problems seem to be coming at you from all directions or when you don't "feel" God's presence or it "feels" like He's not answering your prayers. Here are some verses to shout back at the enemy.
Thrust your Sword: Psalm 37: 23-24 "The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand."

Another thrust: "The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth." Psalm 145:18

The final thrust: God says "I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you." Psalm 32:8

By no means by enemy do I mean people. I mean Satan and all his demonic cronies. Although he can use people to speak through, we must never consider them our enemy. Recognize your true enemy and love all people, especially the ones he is using for his vile purposes.
May God give you strength this week for the battle.

  1. Great verses. :-) The one the Lord gave me recently on this topic is Eph. 5:17 - "Do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is." The Lord has a will/a way for our lives. We can know it by praying, listening and reading the Word.

    It is a comfort to me that God promises to guide our steps.
