Item description for When the Enemy Strikes: The Keys to Winning Your Spiritual Battles (Walker Large Print Books) by Charles F. Stanley...
At some point or another every Christian will experience a satanic attack--a willful, determined assault by the Devil for the purpose of harming our spirit, soul, or body. God wants Christians to be under His control, but the Enemy will do his best to destroy everything good in our lives. So the question is not how to avoid satanic attacks, but how to overcome them.
Satan is not omnipotent, but he is nonetheless a very powerful adversary. However, God does not leave us to defend ourselves, and He wants us to understand His supernatural and unlimited ability to help us. Dr. Stanley will show readers how to achieve victory by:
Identifying the enemy
Dressing in the full armor of God and standing firm
Releasing God's energy, divine power, and protection through prayer
Sensing the forewarnings of Satan's attacks on finances, family, relationships, or health
Spiritual warfare is fought every day on the battlefield of your mind. The Adversary knows that if he can influence and direct your thinking, it's only a matter of time before you're vulnerable to the allure of sin. Dr. Stanley teaches that to stand against Satan's attacks, you must meditate upon biblical principles and take every thought captive by arming yourself with the sword of the spirit--God's Word.

sound teaching Jul 24, 2008
Sound teaching from the straightforward minister we all admire. This could be one of the best spiritually-based books I have ever read. I was raised a Baptist amongst the old world fire & brimstone preachers of the day. I wish the preachers of my youth had been as passionate, succinct, and as educational about The Word as Charles Stanley. I would not have played tic-tac-toe with my pals in the last pew each Sunday, I am sure. This book outlines the truth about spiritual warfare with the devil, his nasty ways, and what you can do about it when your temptations are great and you need the influence of the Holy Spirit to carry you through. As a professional writer, I heartily endorse the quality of the presentation as well. Everyone should read this book.
enlighting book Jul 6, 2008
this book really gets to the point on how the devil can strike you and how you can handle it. Also how it may come from the least expected source. it really hit home for me and how the devil was using my siblings to get to me. when i learned how to handle it it really gave me a peace about things i had been going thru. also other things that had happened. so now when things come up i really think about what is really happening before judging. it is a great book for anyone going thru difficult times at the moment or in the past ,and the future it will help you....
What a great book!!!!!!!!!! Apr 21, 2008

Reflective On Living Life Abundantly Jan 29, 2008
Dr. Stanley says we will all leave a legacy by the life we've lived. Every day that legacy is being written by the things we do and the choices we make. He says when you die, you life will impact other people in a positive or negative way. Reading what he said about his family members' rich legacies reminded me of the spiritual legacies I inherited and for which I am eternally grateful.
In an earlier chapter he talks about receiving wisdom from God by asking for it in faith as taught in the book of James. He says we are to read God's Word and apply its principles. One of those pricinples is associating with desirable people. The list also includes meditating on God's Word and being sensitive to the Holy Spirit's promptings.
Waiting on God is a theme that is included throughout the book. He explains there are negative consequences to jumping the gun and moving before God intends. Persistence is essential to doing things God's way also. Jesus taught the principle of praying persistently.
Having a realization that God is in complete control of the circumstances in our lives gives us the confidence that all things are working for our good. He writes, "We are under the protection of the Holy Spirit; nothing can happen to us that God does not allo, and we know that He permits only those circumstances--no matter how bad they seem--that He can use for our good."
Deborah's Review Sep 26, 2007
Dr. Stanley is an excellent writer and this book is just as good as all his other books. It is a no-nonsense book about being a Christian and what is really involved. Satan is constantly pushing us to do things we shouldn't be doing and this book helps to recognize Satan's temptations and how to ignore those temptations. Dr. Stanley is truly a minister of God!
