Devotional 3/5

But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. Hebrews 10:39

We have no need so great for God, which He is not be able to fill.

I want to remind you that God has our lives in the palm of His hands. As human beings God challenges us to be spiritually connected to Him and to maintain that spiritual strength, so that the enemy would not make us fall, by attacking us through a blind spot. For some people blind spots are their past, which they believe (assume) to have overcome at conversion or baptism. Some actually think that these old demons (habits, thoughts) will not ever return because we no longer entertain them. The things I speak of for example, are drugs, partying, sexual sins, pornography, adultery, smoking and inner things like gossip, lying, envy, pride, and so on.

The great mistake is that the Bible says that when a demon is cast out of a person, it goes to the desert and returns with 7 worst to see if the house is empty and in order. (Matthew) What the Bible means is that when these demons find themselves out of the body, and without ability to control that body- they are bothered! And desire to return with a more destructive intension! These demons do return, and do attack but it depends on our spiritual fitness whether we are knocked down or just buffeted (smacked around). 

We know that pleasure feels great, what we forget is that it is only for a moment.

The enemy comes with people on assignment, thoughts that are sent to our hearts and minds and through feelings which are impressed on us. If we are awake spiritually, we are able to uphold our testimony and fight back using the word of God. This knowledge should already be stored in our minds, and if not, we are quick to understand that we need to research the topics where we feel the attacks.

Don’t go back to anybody or anything, who you have received comfort from in the past, because the enemy knows his own plans. We face sexual and comforting needs, which we were accustom to satisfy with fleshly comforts like sex, drinking, dancing, violence or drugs, etc.

Once we open these doors to the enemy, the enemy will use those same comforts to bind us up again. And this time in a much worse way.

Let’s pray:

Lord Jesus, I praise your name for your living word which never gets old and never fails to touch us each day. May our hearts, minds and bodies be kept blameless from now on. May we feel your love and presence in our lives everyday. May we stand strong when the evil days come. May our pleasure come from you, may our comfort be found in you, knowing that you are THE COMFORTER. May our knowledge never allow us to think we are too wise or to Holy to ever fail, and if we do fail may your grace remind us that we have a new day everyday to change our ways. In Jesus name, Amen.
