The Necessity of an Enemy
How the Battle You Face Is Your Best Opportunity
“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
— Jesus. Congratulations! Your Goliath has arrived. Enemies often seem to get in the way of our plans, leaving us discouraged and disoriented. But what if these obstacles are a part of God’s plans for us? Our enemies—whether our weaknesses, circumstances, deep-seated sins, other people, or any other challenge—can become our stepstool to new breakthroughs in life, if we leverage the opportunity. Just as David’s encounter with Goliath transformed him from a delivery boy to a national hero, our enemies can be a blessing in disguise—if only we recognize and face them head-on. Human nature tells us to flee our enemies, but Ron Carpenter will challenge you to embrace them. In The Necessity of an Enemy, Ron shares engaging insights like: • God intended for every enemy to be your footstool for promotion. • If you want to be No. 1, you can’t just beat No. 9. • The depth of your battle gives you insight into the greatness of the potential God put in you, and an enemy is your key to unlocking that potential. • All battles are fought over your future, not over your past or present circumstances. Are you ready to reach your next goal in life? Do you want biblically based wisdom to help defeat every enemy and move with confidence to your destiny? The Necessity of an Enemy will give you the tools to change your perspective—and find meaning and purpose in all of life’s trials.
