The Enemy at Work

There are not degrees of sin—sin is sin. I know that. But sometimes, when sin looks like pure evil…well, that’s harder to swallow.

Last week, I wrote about a presentation I attended on human trafficking. I watched as the speaker, a senior criminal investigator, paced while answering questions and I heard his attempt to temper his words. When a woman spoke up about the evil going on, he stopped, paused, and said there were times he felt he was looking right into the face of the devil himself.

I can’t imagine the horror he’s seen and I wonder how he’s able to sleep at night. I want to cheer for him and thank him for fighting for what’s right and for helping those who can’t help themselves.

It’s not new this evil. Satan has been at work since the beginning…tempting and enticing us, luring us with promises of wealth, fame, satisfaction—and lying to us.

  1. The enemy is busy. Fortunately, the Lord fights for us, with us, and through us. Our victory is sure, but the battle rages on. May God equip us with courage to do what is necessary to battle our enemy.

    GOD BLESS!
