Christian Author Book Tour: We Are Not Ignorant Of His Devices

This blog post is part of the Christian Author Book Tour for We Are Not Ignorant Of His Devices by Dr. Miriam Kinai.


We Are Not Ignorant of His Devices 2nd Edition (2 Corinthians 2:11) uses examples from the Bible to teach you 20 of the strategies the devil uses to attack God’s people. This Christian spiritual warfare book also shows you how to deal with each of those devices so that you can live a more victorious Christian life. 


We Are Not Ignorant Of His Devices Book Excerpt
Seduction
Seduction is one of the devices that the enemy uses to ensnare the people of God.

We can see a good example of this when Joseph was a slave because Potiphar’s wife Looked longingly at Joseph and she told him, “Sleep with me”. (Genesis 39:7) This woman also used the device of persistence for She spoke to Joseph day after day. (Genesis 39:10)

We can also see another example of seduction when the Israelites were camped in the Moab plains before they entered their Promised Land. King Balak of the Moabites hired Balaam to curse the Israelites but he was unable to curse them for he said, “I have received a command from God to bless and God has blessed them and I cannot reverse it. (Numbers 23:20)

Balaam also said, God has not seen iniquity in the Israelites or seen wickedness in them.” (Numbers 23:21) He therefore came up with a plan to make the Israelites sin by using this device of seduction for the Bible tells us that It was through the counsel of Balaam that the Israelites sinned against God in Peor and this caused the plague. (Numbers 31:16)  

This sin that the Israelites sinned in Peor involved committing harlotry with the Moabite women (Numbers 25:1) and they were also invited to sacrifice to their gods and bow down to them. (Numbers 25:2) As a result of their actions, the Israelites aroused God’s anger and a plague erupted which killed 24,000 of them.

Balaam’s plan of seduction succeeded since 24,000 Israelites died but God also punished the Midianites for He told Moses, “Harass and attack the Midianites because they harassed you with their schemes by seducing you in Peor.” (Numbers 25:16-18)

How to Deal with Seduction

If you are being attacked with this device of seduction do the following:

Fear God
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom (Proverbs 9:10) and Joseph exhibited this wisdom because when Potiphar’s wife seduced him, he asked her, “How can I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” (Genesis 39:9)

We can see from his question that Joseph was not concerned about her husband, his master, finding out because he could have found a way to evade him for as Joseph said, “My master Potiphar does not know what is in this house for he has committed all that he has to my hand.” (Genesis 39:8)  However Joseph knew that God would know and that is why he asked Potiphar’s wife “How can I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?” (Genesis 39:9)

Therefore even if you can evade other humans and get away with doing what you are being seduced to do, fear God and do your best not to sin against Him. 


Look For An Escape
Joseph resisted the temptation because even though Potiphar’s wife was persistent with her advances, “Joseph did not heed her and agree to lie with her or to be with her.” (Genesis 39:10)

To help you resist this temptation you are being seduced with, remind yourself that God is faithful and He will not allow you to be tempted more than you can bear because with each temptation, there will always be a way of escape. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

Therefore look for your way to escape the seduction and take it like Joseph Who left his garment in the hand of Potiphar’s wife and fled outside. (Genesis 39:13) Though she used the garment against him when he was accused him of attempted rape, God vindicated Joseph because after he was imprisoned for this crime, God connected him Pharaoh’s butler and blessed him with the wisdom to interpret Pharaoh’s dreams which resulted in him being promoted to be the Prime Minister of Egypt.

If you cannot leave the scene of seduction physically, leave it mentally by meditating on Bible verses like the following:
Abhor what is evil and cling to what is good (Romans 12:9)

God is faithful and He will not allow you to be tempted more than you can bear because with each temptation, there will always be a way of escape. (1 Corinthians 10:13)

We do not have a High Priest Who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses because He was tempted just as we are and yet He was without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace so that we may obtain mercy and grace to help us in our time of need. (Hebrews 4:15-16)

What Do You Want Jesus To Do For You?




What Do You Want Jesus To Do For You?


As Jesus and His disciples were leaving Jericho with a great crowd, blind Barimaeus the son of Timaeus was sitting by the road begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth who was passing by, he begun to cry out saying, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!" 

Then, many people warned him to be quiet but he cried out even more saying, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"

So Jesus stopped and commanded for him to be called and the people said to Bartimaeus, "Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you."

Bartimaeus threw away his garment, arose and went to Jesus.

Jesus then asked him, "What do you want Me to do for you?"

Bartimaeus replied, "Rabboni, that I may receive my sight." 

Jesus then said to him, "Go your way, your faith has made you well."
And immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus. (Mark 10:46-52)

Christian Goal Setting Book Excerpt


Pray Over The Goal

The first step to achieving your goals in life is to pray over the goals.

Learn from David when he and his men returned to their homes in Ziklag and found their houses razed and their wives and children kidnapped for David inquired of the Lord saying, “Shall I pursue after this troop?” (1 Samuel 30:8)

David did not immediately set a goal of setting out to pursue the kidnappers. He first sought the Lord’s direction. God then encouraged him and told him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and recover everything.” (1 Samuel 30:8)  

As a result of acknowledging God before he set out on his goal, God directed David’s path and he and his men found an Egyptian who had been a servant of one of the kidnapping Amalekites. This man had been left to die by his master when he fell sick and he led David and his men to the hideout of the Amalekite attackers. 

David and his men were therefore able to find and fight the Amalekites and they recovered all their family members and all their property. (1 Samuel 30:11-19)

Therefore, Do not be wise in your own eyes. (Proverbs 3:7) Or, in other words do not consider yourself so wise that you do not need God’s guidance when setting your goals. 

Instead, In all your ways acknowledge God and He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:6)


In all your ways acknowledge God and He shall direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:6)


Seeking God’s direction is beneficial before you set your goals because He can help you save time and money for David and his men could have wasted days and even weeks looking for the Amalekites’ hideout if the Lord had not directed their paths to the ailing Egyptian who was willing to lead them to his cruel master.
