David says in Psalm 144 verses 11 and 14:
11 Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of foreigners,
Whose mouth speaks lying words,
And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood…….
14 ….That there be no breaking in or going out;
David spoke of his enemies as foreigners whose mouths spoke lying words and whose right hand was a right hand of falsehood. The ultimate enemy and foreigner in our life is Satan. He and everything he is about is foreign to our values and the life we pursue. Like the enemies of David he speaks lying words and he is full of falsehood.
He entices us, promising us things he cannot and does not deliver, appearing to want to do us good but only ever doing us harm.
His agenda as spoken of in verse 14 is to cause…..” breaking in” and “going out”. He tries to break into our lives and steal what God gives us….His peace, righteousness and freedom, and cause a “going out”, a loss of these things that are valuable and precious to us….all the blessings God brings into our life.
Jesus warned us of Satan’s activity in John 10:10 ” the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy…”….in other words to cause a “breaking in” and “going out”……like a thief he tries to “break into” our lives and go out with what belongs to us through God.
When it comes to the good things God gives us, don’t let Satan break in and go out.
