The devil isn’t dressed in red holding a pitchfork; he comes as everything we’ve always wanted. For some, the enticement is a woman, a well built person at the gym, or a six pack after a hard day at work. For others, its status, recognition, and ego. The enemy simply capitalizes on our weaknesses. The classic line from an old Wyatt Earp movie states it well, “You tell them I’m coming! And I’m bringing hell with me!” The same applies to us: when we make a decision to follow God’s principles, all hell breaks lose and is dead set against us. The only way to prevail is to follow the Scriptural course.
