The Enemy Within

The Enemy from Within
SURVIVAL FROM WITHIN (Proverbs 27:19 NKJV) By Teanis Tillmon "As in water face reflects face, so a man’s heart reveals the man" NKJV The most important and most difficult enemy to deal with lies within. It is a result of the sin that was conceived from the mother’s womb (Psalm 51:5).
This simply means that we were born into sin and have developed programmed skills that hinder us from taming the addictions, fears, negative attitudes and behaviors. We battle these inside "demons" every day.
This affects our decision-making process, our thinking, and harvest blind spots when it comes to personal safety and security. The most important discovery is to know who we are and what our purpose in life is.
We should be focused on the road to personal discovery of who you are and what makes us do the things we do. If we do not become spiritually prepared, we will never be physically ready for situations, confrontations, or conflict. Who do we see when we look into the mirror? Do we like the person we see? Is that person looking back at us the real us, or do we struggle to find the value and self-worth that God’s word say we can have? Jesus came that we might have an abundant life. This reality begins in our mind, our thought processes.
The greatest enemy we may face is the enemy called me. Being able to positively define the person on the inside makes and impact on our ability to grow and become powerful.
In his book, Satan’s Dirty Little Secret (The Two Demon Spirits That All Demons Get Their Strength From), Steve Foss defines the word inferiority as being the state of feeling lower in a position, stature, or value, and insecurity as the state of being not secure, not confident, not firm. This is where all other anxieties or feelings such as addictions, fears, negative or bad attitudes of perception, doubt and disbelief, anger, and lack of discipline originate from. Law Enforcement officers may fall prey to this problem as well.
It may not be from inadequate training in weapons that synopsize the problems that arise, but dealing with the pressures brewing on the inside. Most officers cannot deal with their anger. And as a result, they will end up in a forced hand of excessive use of force situations.
Crimes that go against human rights laws are committed by some in military combat every day. These crimes are committed out of pure ignorance, and at times, for personal gain or pleasure. Regardless of the reason, unless our own inner being is channeled into a positive direction, many mistakes will be made, resulting in life-long consequences.
What holds true is, if we do not become informed by personal growth or self improvement of our own inner enemies, we will fall to our own demise. Lest a man think he will stand take heed lest he fall (1 Corinthians 10:12 NKJV) and we can be lead away by our sin and enticed (James 1:14 NKJV). Knowing yourself will prepare you inwardly to act correctly in physical engagement.

The enemy within is the part of person which is present in the soul for the time period of long time and can be collected for the long era and as well as for the long relations. There is a fault in the man for long distance.
