Throughout the competition of life, struggles and disappointments will impact your training, your team, and your goals. While each one of these obstacles may be unforeseen, there is one opponent always watching for an opportunity to distract you. He is called the devil, and he is battling against everything you stand for as a Christian—truth, life, and the Ultimate Prize: Christ. Stay focused on winning the gold. Don't allow yourself to be distracted by your well-trained opponent because even he has weaknesses. Make sure that you're at the net ready to block his attacks. Here are a couple of guidelines to help you defeat this powerful opponent.
Just like the volleyball goes back and forth after each serve, so too can the attacks in spiritual warfare. Learn to crush your opponent by memorizing plays that center on the Word of God (Psalm 119:11). When you make a kill, it will force the devil to rethink his strategy. Work together to cover the positions on the court, but when your opponent discovers those weak areas, don't be discouraged (1 Corinthians 10:13). Remember, you're already on the winning side! Instead, work hard to reinforce those areas so that they can withstand the next attack.
