What happens to the enemy’s plans for us?
Because truth be told, he has plans to take us out.
He doesn’t want us to succeed but there is good news for us in the Word of God.
The bible has the real truth. The enemy’s plans will not succeed over us.
Take David for instance. He had to flee from Absalom for a season and to make matters worse
his counselor Ahithophel had sided with Absalom which was really bad news for David.
Ahithophel was David’s trusted advisor. He was wise and knew David really well, the way
he worked, his family, how he thought and so much more. He was not the guy to go up
Anyway, he had a plan to eliminate David and went to Absalom to tell him his plan.
Everyone loved his plan but before it could be green lit they called Hushai (another of David’s
counsellors) to hear what his plan would be. Earlier on in the story, David sent him back
in the hope to overthrow the counsel of Ahithophel.
So when they called Hushai they asked him what his plan would be and they loved his plan.
They thought it was better than Ahithophel’s plan. So they decided to go with his plan.
And this is the lesson I want to get across.
Ahithophel’s plan to eliminate David was better than Hushai’s. The word tells us so.
“Then Absalom and all the men of Israel said, “Hushai’s advice is better than Ahithophel’s.
For the Lord had determined to defeat the counsel of Ahithophel, which really was the better
plan, so that he could bring disaster on Absalom!”
2 Samuel 17:14, 15
So if Absalom and his men had listened to Ahithophel’s counsel they would have managed to
destroy David and his men BUT….
Because God was with David, He overthrew the counsel of Ahithophel. David would not be eliminated
by the enemy’s plan because God was watching over him and protecting him.
And like David, God will frustrate and stop the enemy’s plan for you. His plans will not succeed
No weapon formed against you will prosper the word tells us.
So don’t fear when the enemy rises against you to destroy you. The Lord will never allow the enemy
to be victorious over you and that is good news!
So trust God no matter how intense the battle gets because He is protecting you and watching over you.
No plan of the enemy will succeed over you.
Blessings to you.
