Flee!

grackleI watched in amazement as a grackle, standing in a busy intersection, danced around oncoming traffic! Then this thought popped into my head:  “That’s just like we are with sin!”  Instead of running from it, we like to dance around it, hoping we won’t be run over by it.

I imagine God watches us thinking the same thing I did about the grackle – it’s only a matter of time before their foolish actions will catch up with them.

Let’s look at what the Bible has to say.

1 Timothy 6:11

But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.

2 Timothy 2:22

Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

James 4:7

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

1 Corinthians 6:18

Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body.

1 Corinthians 10:14

Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.

Looks like the operative word here is FLEE! Nothing indicates we should try to interact with sin in any way as the grackle did with the cars.  Don’t hang around doing things you know displease God.  It’s just a matter of time before you will be run over.  Gwen~

 

 

Devour

th How aware are you of Satan’s presence?  He’s there, Love Heart!  He will pick and pick until he trips you up!

“Be self-controlled and alert.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8)

devour: to swallow or eat up hungrily, voraciously, or ravenously, to consume destructively, recklessly, or wantonly, to engulf or swallow up.

Satan has no mercy and that’s why it’s important that you remain alert and under the control of the Holy Spirit at all times. If you do, the devil will flee!

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7, NIV)  th (1)

I pray, Father God, for your protection from the evil one. ~Debra
