One of the most important things you can do as a Christian is to find out what the bible says about everything you face, especially when it comes to your enemies

This can be a very touchy area.  How do you handle it when someone is against you?  Maybe even trying to destroy you or destroy something you love and cherish.  It gets hard just to sit back and do nothing. 

In cases like this, the flesh will try to rise and make you handle things yourself and in an ungodly manner. 

However, in times like this, we have to put the flesh under subjection to the word of God by putting our Spirit in Charge.   

The only way we can do this is by praying, fasting and meditating on the word of God.  This is why this collection of bible verses about your enemies was put together. 

We need to know what the bible says about our enemies.  What instruction has God placed in the scriptures in which we are to follow?

 In all things God wants us to seek him. 

He wants us to be doers and not just hearers of his word.  When we do it God’s way, he will make even our enemies be at peace with us.  God will make loving our enemies, something which seems impossible to do, possible. 

As you read the following Bible verses about your enemies I pray that God will strengthen your inner man to place the situation in God’s hand and to trust that God will fix it.
