Everything I needed to Know – Invisible Enemies

Greetings Dear Reader,

One of the great devices in Star Trek is that enemies have cloaking devices.  The enemy can hide in plain sight.  He can lay in wait for the moment that is right to attack and disarm us.  He can stalk us and destroy us.

In truth we do have hidden enemies as we journey home.  Whether it is the enemies of God who seek to destroy his creation or our enemies in society we do have hidden enemies.  The more we work at being good and doing what is right the more we will draw the attention the enemies of good.

Unlike the fiction of Star Trek our enemies can attack whilst cloaked.  They can plot and scheme.  In some cases they can even destroy us without us knowing what was done to us.  In reality TV the blindside has become a device for winning.   In life being blindsided add betrayal to attack.

When this has happened to me it has done so much damage.  My choice is to learn, heal, and move on down the path.  My defense is not my own ability but rather that Christ promises to defend me. 

It sounds paranoid and a little delusional.  Sounding that way does not make it so.  It is the denial of unseen enemies and an all sufficient Saviour that endangers us.  The cloaked enemies in our lives will attack and try to destroy us.  It is only in clinging to Christ that I have any hope.

Wishing you joy in the journey,
