Beware

As with the Psalmist we are in a battle daily, our enemy , Satan attacks are constant. At times he uses people we know friends, family etc. His one desire is to see a Christian fall completely. He makes many unaware of the dangers on their path . He uses those walking close to and ignoring the dangers to be an influence on others so he can bring his attacks on them. Some may for a while walk close to danger for a while and not get hurt and others will be destroyed much sooner. A deceiver never tells the truth in the beginning. Today sin is always presented as enjoyable and good, the alcohol ads and movies mostly show good looking people having fun and enjoyment. We use nicer words to make sin sound ok, fornication is referred to as sleeping or just living together, homosexuals are call gays etc. but the end is the same,  heart ache  then eternity in hell. Yes we need to have a fear of the devil and stand clear of his deceptions. But in our fear we need to trust in God. Praise His Word, starts with reading and studying it because of its value. As the Psalmist says in verse 4 of Psalm 56 “fear what the flesh can do unto me” that is my flesh the natural me but for the grace of God anyone of us could do all that others have done. Our enemy Satan just waits daily for an opportunity to cause us to destroy our lives and testimony before God and others. As Christians we have been delivered from death (Hell) only by the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary. That is the only hope we have for forgiveness and eternity in heaven we have nothing to offer.  Now let’s pray that we will walk carefully before God and others in our daily lives. Our confidence is in God. Psalm 56:1Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. 4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. 5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.  6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.  7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.  8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?  9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.  10 In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word. 11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.  12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.  13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
