Misdirection in a football game is fun. Misdirection from Satan is deadly. He has been doing it for thousands of years, from the time in the Garden of Eden when he got Eve to believe that God was holding out on her and Adam, to Exodus when he got the Israelites focused on hating Moses, to the time he got David focused on Bathsheba, to Judas and the time he got him focused on a payoff for betraying the Lord. Deception and misdirection are two of his main weapons. 2 Corinthians 11:14 says, “Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (NLT). He comes as what he isn’t, not as what he is. One of best ways he gets advantage in a match is to get Christians focused on fighting battles that seem good, but don’t see the big picture.
