Have you ever noticed that when Satan attempts to detour us from doing the work of Christ, he uses those close to us to destroy us. Why? Because we give those close to us value. We allow them to speak into our hearts in a way we wouldn’t with a stranger.
So how do we protect ourselves? We pray for discernment, we set healthy boundaries, and we take hold of the weapons Christ provides to protect us. Then when the enemy realizes we are on to him and that God’s armor shielded us, we can return to doing what God created us to do for His glory!
