"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." (Jesus)
Congratulations! Your Goliath has arrived. Enemies often seem to get in the way of our plans, leaving us discouraged and disoriented. But what if these obstacles are a part of God's plans for us? Our enemies - whether our weaknesses, circumstances, deep-seated sins, other people, or any other challenge - can become our stepstool to new breakthroughs in life, if we leverage the opportunity. Just as David's encounter with Goliath transformed him from a delivery boy to a national hero, our enemies can be a blessing in disguise - if only we recognize and face them head-on.
Human nature tells us to flee our enemies, but Ron Carpenter will challenge you to embrace them. In The Necessity of an Enemy, Ron shares engaging insights like:
Are you ready to reach your next goal in life? Do you want biblically based wisdom to help defeat every enemy and move with confidence to your destiny? The Necessity of an Enemy will give you the tools to change your perspective - and find meaning and purpose in all of life's trials.

"a different view when things go wrong."
life changing. not negatively. i am not affected by the wiles of the devil and his imps.
"A good Biblical accounting of overcoming struggles"
I liked the Biblical examples of overcoming struggle the best.
What I liked least was the overall story of the Single Mother's home program. What I couldn't grasp was how the developer was able to get millions of dollars in investors within the Church without Mr. Carpenter ever knowing about it. That struggle made the rest of the book a bit off for me.
Focus more on what you could have done, should have done that ultimately helps you overcome the enemy. The book read a lot like a victim sharing his issues.
No. It was a personal account. No sequel needed in my view.
The concept of an enemy can be a source of motivation. No doubt.
I enjoyed the audible greatly, listening as I drove to and from work. I also bought the book which I just received today. I met Ron recently at my church, he was a special speaker..it was a great night!
"Super encouraging word for Overcomers"
This book gives a whole new perspective on facing the Giants in our lives. The battles in our lives and in particular the spiritual strategies underlying those battles are in a way a barometer of the victories that are ours to attain right around the corner. Put this one on your A-list, because likely there's a battle and a potential victory coming your way soon.
"You haven't seen nothing Yet!!!"
This book has changed a lot of my thinking (why me) and I feel now Why not!!! I am ready to listen to this book again and I have been passing it on to family and friends who I know will benefit from this. I am so Blessed at this moment, Thank you and God Bless you and your family for Blessing me and mine. The Reynolds
"The Necessity ... By Ron Carpenter"
This audiobook met my expectations in every way. My favorite moment was the definition of conflict - the space between expectations and reality...the narrator was better than most, but the narrators tone and inflection was limited, which got monotonous after a few hours of listening to this book. I look forward to more from Ron Carpenter.
