The Enemy From Within; Talking Heart2Heart


The enemy inside


Facing one issue in life or another is quite common, but the outcome of these issues are really based on the actions of the person. You must be disciplined, focused, have self-control, and determination. Some face problems in stride, and seem to recover without even missing a beat. While others struggle with the enemy from within, everyone will experience a meeting with this enemy on occasion. When talking about the enemy from within, it’s the battle that takes place in the mind. You may know what you are supposed to do, but then the chatter in the mind begins. The chatter causes you to waver in your decision, and now the battle begins. James 1:8 “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways.” (translation) A person who has doubts is thinking about two different things at the same time but can’t make up his mind about anything.

The chatter is designed to distract you from succeeding, but you have the ability to control your own thoughts. 2 Corinthians 10:5 “casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” So you must take control of your thoughts and not allow them to control or lead you. The enemy from within will destroy your life if you don’t take control of your every thought. You must aim your thoughts in the direction in which you wish them to go because this enemy will use glamor and shine to entice you to follow its lead, so don’t fall for this trick. You do not have control over thoughts as they come to your mind, but you do have the ability to overthrow the enemy from within by taking control of those thoughts.

Every thought is just a thought, until it is put into action. Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” You have the power to set the mood in motion to take part by refusing to yield to your surroundings, situations, or pressures. The environment lurks with several reasons to become emotional throughout the day. So you have to make a sound decision to start each day with a positive attitude and declaring that you are the head in every situation and not the tail. Deuteronomy 28:13 “If you listen to these commands of the LORD your God that I am giving you today, and if you carefully obey them, the LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always be on top and never at the bottom.”

Dealing with the enemy from within is a battle that all must tackle, but unfortunately all will not conquer. You must face this battle with a forceful attitude of determination. Daily living upon this earth can be quite challenging, but there is hope as you face the individual demons. Demons are any and everything that is opposed to God and the plan he has for you. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” The enemy from within will continue to show up on a daily basis, and only you can defeat it. This fight is an ongoing battle, and you must enter each day with the intent to destroy the attempt of this enemy.



There is power available to help you in this battle of warfare in the mind. Every conflict you may ever have will start in the mind, as you are literally in a struggle of tug-of-war. The tug-of-war is the best demonstration that brings an understanding to what the enemy from within represents which is destruction on every level. This war can sometimes make you feel helpless in many ways, but this battle is not yours it’s the LORD’S. You must not lean-to your understanding but trust in the word of God and its power. Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not to thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” So even though this enemy will come to your mind again and again, the word of God will deliver you from it all. Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper.” Just remember you are equipped by God with the power to face and to bring down this enemy.
