The Traps (Devices) Of The Enemy

Dr Paul Enenche

The growth of faith is the death of fear.

SCRIPTURE: Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2 Corinthians 2:11

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The growth of faith is the death of fear.

It is a fact from our anchor Scripture that the strength of the devil is not in his power but in his devices, traps and wiles. The devil sets traps for people so he can proceed to destroy those his traps have caught. But the most important truth is that the devil is powerless because Jesus has said in Matthew Chapter 28, and in Verse 18… All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

Now, one trap that the enemy uses to destroy the children of God is called FEAR. Fear is a magnet and an attraction of destruction. The devil introduces fear, and when fear matures, disaster and calamity arrive. Fear invites torments, and to surrender to fear is to surrender to torment (Job 23:25).

I remember the case of a young lady who attended to her Aunty that was afflicted with cancer and watched how the aunty suffered until she passed away. This young lady remained in the fear of that affliction until the same cancer affliction came on her almost twenty years later, because the fear was not dealt with.

Beloved, every time you begin to entertain fear, you are in a state of emergency. Deal with that fear! You must refuse for fear to thrive in your life. Do so by studying Scriptures and messages that kill fear and instil faith in you. The growth of faith is the death of fear. And faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

REMEMBER THIS: The growth of faith is the death of fear.


  1. Feed your spirit with Christian fear-destroying messages and books that will kill fear and instil faith in you.
  2. Refuse to fear.

PRAYER: O Lord, I ask that You impart me with the Spirit of faith. I reject every trace of fear hovering over my life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
