Life is not the sum total of just thephysical things we can see. Christians are in a spiritual battle with Satan, who is determined to make our lives miserable and kill us. With this in mind, we must not blame God for the bad things that happen. The enemy is constantly lurking in the background, waiting for an opportunity to work evil in our lives; he is willing to lie to us with his suggestions if it means he can lead us away from God. We combat his tactics with a thorough knowledge of God’s Word, so that when we hear someone speaking to us, we will know whose voice it is. As believers, the choice as to who to listen to and what to believe is ours. The ability to use God’s Word as armor to defeat Satan gives us the advantage in the fight for our minds.
