A Man Knows the Enemy’s Promises Are Empty
The Enemy is the master of deception. He manipulates people and circumstances. Then when we fall, he offers us what we believe is relief. But in all reality he’s just deceiving you again. Many great men fall this way. It could be the slip at the job, financial instability, even the pressures of satisfying partners in their relationships when they believe they’ve fallen short. While some men rise above these circumstances when they fall, many fall into a deeper pit and will begin to seek pleasure to deal with the pain. Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the Will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” It is impossible to achieve perfection. Gentlemen, you will stumble along the way, but the true emphasis should be on your mind in heart.
