Philippians 1:28 Don’t be intimidated in any way by your enemies. This will be a sign to them that they are going to be destroyed, but that you are going to be saved, even by God himself.

The Word of God tells us not to be intimidated or afraid of our enemies. These enemies can be physical enemies such as actual people or they can be spiritual such as sickness, poverty, failure, or death.

Although the Word tells us not to be afraid of our enemies, it’s definitely a temptation to allow fear to dictate our lives. The most common type of enemy that attempts to dictate our lives is spiritual.

Some of us are afraid of the enemy known as failure, therefore, we don’t start the business God called us to start. Some of us are afraid of the enemy known as rejection, therefore, we miss out on meeting the spouse of our dreams. Some of us are afraid of the enemy known as death, therefore, we don’t get on a plane and we limit ourselves to only seeing what is drivable.

Regardless of the enemy, we must not fear. For the believer, there is too much God in us, around us, and working through us to allow fear to dictate our lives. Rest and be assured that if we trust God, God’s got us and He won’t allow our enemies to win.
