""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 stepping stool 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:

- "God intended for every enemy to be your footstool for promotion. "

- "If you want to be number one, you can't just beat number nine. "

- "The depth of your battle gives you insight into the greatness of the potential God put in you, and enemies are your key to unlocking that potential. "

- "All battles are fought over your future, not over your past or present circumstances."

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.
