"Faye's daily words of encouargement" # 23 Todays word is : Adversary"

Definition of the word adversary: An opponent ; one who is an openly antagonistic toward you.

Psalms chapter 74 - 10 : O God. how long shall the adversary reproach? shall the enemy blaspheme thy name for ever.

Isiah chapter 50 -8 : He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me, let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near me.

Matthews chapter 5 - 25 : Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him;lest at anytime the adversary delivers thee to the judge, and the judge delivers thee to the officer: and thou be cast into prison.

An adversary is satan, the devil or any other negative thing or action that can hamper with our life. These are adversaries the we have to fight with every day of our lives. We all have to put on the whole Armor of God in order to do battle with our adversaries. The children of God have to fight adversaries in their lives; in one area of life or another.

Our adversary doesn't bother the ones they already have control over, he wants the children of God to be bound up and locked down into bondage; this is the reason for our constant fight with them. The children of God, doesn't give in to the demand of the adversaries; because we have the strength of God working within us.

If the adversary isn't messing with us or wrecking havoc in our life, then maybe we should check ourselves, and our actions to make sure we're not working with him; hand and hand. we have to search ourselves to make sure we're still on board with Jesus, each and every day.

To my mind Satan always picks on the wrong people. Never on those who would deserve it. I am not wishing it on them don't get me wrong. Thanks for a well written hub.

Especially is this so of Satan the Devil who walks about like a roaring lion seeking to devour someone. He doesn't care who it is or who he has to use either. As long as he can get you to do wrong, he'll stop at nothing. That's why, like you said, we have to be aware of where and who it's coming from.
