Who Are We Fighting?

1 Samuel 23:27 But there came a messenger unto Saul, saying, Haste thee, and come; for the Philistines have invaded the land.

Here today we read of one of the many instances where Saul was chasing after David. Something interesting happens in today's portion of Scripture that stood out to me. In essence, David and Saul were supposed to be on the "same team." Yet, Saul is always chasing after David to kill him. And this time, while he was spending so much time chasing after David, the real enemy came and began to invade the land. The same land that he was supposed to be protecting.

Unfortunately, we have not learned from the mistake of Saul. We spend so much time fighting the wrong person (spouse, church member, other Bible believing pastor in town, etc.), that the real enemy has invaded our homes and our churches and recking havoc today.

Remember, you may not be watching for Satan - but he is watching you!

  1. Placing our focus on God, remaining in His word, filled with prayer, those are our defenses. Do that and He'll clear our battles.
