6 Reasons Why The Devil Never Gets Tired of Attacking Christians And How To Be Safe From The Attacks

As long as we are on the earth, we are in an endless journey of battles. Our survival and thriving lies in our ability to counter and conquer all the schemes of the devil. This cannot be achieved by mere human efforts because the battle is spiritual. For Christians, these attacks can be more profound because of declaring their stand and faith in God. Therefore, any compromise could give access to the enemy into one's life. This is why the devil stands as an accuser against the brethren. The following are some reasons why the devil is relentless in his attacks:

1. He is on a mission

In John 10:10, Jesus Christ said that the work of the enemy (The devil) is to steal, kill and to destroy. Therefore, as long as we are alive the devil will always seek for a way to bring disaster upon our lives. However, the solution to this is to remain steadfast on the promises of God because Jesus promises that his coming was to bring life in abundance (John 10:11). God also promises in Jeremiah 29:11 that He had good plans for us; for prosperity and not disaster.

2. Our allegiance to Christ makes us the devil's enemies

When we become followers of Christ, we agree to become one with Christ and live in obedience to His word. Therefore, this sets us apart as God's own. On the other hand, we have declared enmity with the devil who therefore launches attacks against us in a bid to prove God wrong as well as shake our faith in God.

Solution: Put your trust in God and have an unshakable faith in Him. God defends His own and fights out battles and hence the devil cannot harm us as long as we remain in God.

3. He wants to draw many people to his side

The devil will never get tired of launching attacks against the brethren because he seeks to win some people to his side. Those who cannot endure these attacks are bound to fall and surrender to the devil hence becoming his slaves. This means that he will have more people joining his kingdom.

The solution is to be sure of one's faith and to remain unshaken. Once you have developed a close relationship with God and you are firmly rooted in the faith, no amount of spiritual tsunami can push you to the wrong side of the enemy.

4. Many Christians compromise

Some Chistians compromise their spiritual standards by wallowing in sin. Most of them engage in evil acts that give the devil access to their lives. Because of sin lurking in their lives, the devil takes charge and attacks their lives.

If you have been compromising your Christian faith, then it's time to take a total turn around and make a firm decision to live a blameless life. Repent of your sins and ask for God's mercy and forgiveness.

5. He doesn't desire the prosperity of Christians

As mentioned earlier, the mission of the devil is to finally destroy. This may not happen at once. Instead, the devil will seek to gradually destroy a person until they are no more. Because he is not happy with Christians, his attacks will be numerous and fierce. As a Christian, know that once you are in Christ, you are more than a conqueror because it is Jesus Christ that gives you the strength.

6. Most Christians lack spiritual covering

This means that most Christians have not mastered the spiritual knowledge that makes for their safety in Christ. Out of ignorance, many are suffering huge blows and mysterious attacks because of their vulnerability. To counter these attacks, you should also pray for God's covering and protection over your life. Put on the full armour of God (Ephesians 6:10-20).
