Don't Let Him Get A Foothold

Christians, if you think for one moment that satan is not out to destroy your home ~ you might want to think again. It seems these days he is working overtime ~ he certainly has a special interest in us. God describes him in I Peter 5:8 as a roaring lion ~ Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. he can’t have our souls but he wants to bring us down, discourage us, attempt to render us useless for God ~ even destroy our homes and families. Sometimes we can get so down that we are of no earthly good for our King. I know ~ I’ve been there. I plead with you to protect your homes, your families, yourself at all costs. Read God’s Word, pray, keep the full armour of God upon you (Ephesians 6: 11-18).

I’m really angry at satan tonight - I have more than one precious friend in need. Let’s just say he strikes again. He just makes me so mad that he lurks and waits for that perfect moment - getting a foothold in a weak spot in our lives. And we all have those weak spots - those tiny imperfections in our vessels. That is why it is so important to stay in the Word, to be in a state of prayer, and keep that armour on. Be ready for when he attacks.

My moma says he is the only person that we can tell to go to hell. My moma is a wonderful, God-fearing Christian and, mind you, she isn’t trying to curse. She is right - he is the only entity that a Christian would wish hell upon ~ a place where he will eventually spend eternity. That pretty much sums up the way I feel tonight because he has attacked yet another Christian family. I'm heading to a quiet place to get down on my stiff arthritic knees and beg God's help for this family.

Keep looking up. Jesus Christ is coming back.

I know just what you mean. It seems the same here...just one after another. But what we have to realize to is that the devil is going to fight all that much harder to destroy any family who is doing something for him. If he can find a weak area, he will attack there. You are so right...we need to stay in the word and in prayer.
Thank you for this post.
