Instantly I clicked cancel and I was relieved I did not download a spyware into my computer system.
In the spiritual realm, our enemy – the devil works like a spyware. He studies you, follows your every movements, observes your behavior patterns and detects your weakness. He will then engineer a situation that will make you fall to his plan. Fortunately, we Christian have an “antivirus” program that will prompt us if any spywares is detected. They are our Holy Spirit, the one who will prompt us when temptation is near; HE will teach us many things and reveals wisdom in our walk with Christ.
Take for an example, a man who has had a bad day at work. The Holy Spirit prompted him to keep his peace and not rush in doing his work yet the man ignored the Spirit and rushed off to do things with his own strength. He then spilled coffee on his report, the printer jammed and he was yelled by his boss due to the late report's submission. After work, he rushed to go home but he was caught in the traffic jam for an hour and when he finally reaches home, the house electricity is out, dinner is not served and the children are crying and screaming. This is when the man finally loses his temper and shouts at his family.
Now the devil knows that the man will lost his self control and respond with anger in such circumstances or pressures. The devil will then wait for a similar opportunity in the future and attack again when the man is at his weakest.
So in facing our enemy, it is important to heed the instruction of the Holy Spirit and be vigilant of our enemy who is constantly spying for the next best opportunity to harm us.
These things I have spoken to you, while abiding with you. "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.
