On the day we begin our relationship with Christ, we gain enemies.

David said in Psalm 23:5,You prepare a table for me in the presence of my enemies…We as Christians face three primary enemies: the world, the flesh, and the devil.

• The world with its enticements is the external
• The flesh with its vulnerabilities and appetites is the internal
• The devil working with these two foes is the infernal

Combined, they are a powerful adversary.

The best antidote against this unholy trinity of the world, the flesh, and the devil is an intimate relationship with the Shepherd as we feed at His table. When we sit at the table of the Lord, we can be satisfied because we know everything we need is there.

But the enemy tries to gain a seat at that table and influence our thinking. We must not allow that to happen.

As Christians, we can feast at the Lord’s table and turn away from the lies of the world, the flesh, and the devil. God has prepared a table before us!
