“But the Lord is faithful; He will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one.” (2 Thessalonians 3:3 NLT)
Beneath the surface of the routine of daily life, a fierce struggle among invisible spiritual powers is being waged. Our main defense is prayer that God will protect us from the evil one and that he will strengthen us. (See also comments on Ephesians 6:10-19 concerning our armor for spiritual warfare.) The following guidelines can help you prepare for and survive satanic attacks: (1) Take the threat of spiritual attack seriously; (2) pray for strength and help from God; (3) study the Bible to recognize Satan’s style and tactics; (4) memorize Scripture so it will be a source of help no matter where you are; (5) associate with those who speak the truth; and (6) practice what you are taught by sound spiritual leaders.(Tyndal Study Bible)
The Bible is full of promises. None, however, without a call to action.
On Sunday, morning Pastor Aidan’s sermon was about “what if “. Do me a favour, read Genesis 18:16-33 . It’s the conversation between Abraham and God asking whether God would save the city if there were righteous people in Sodom and Gomorrah.
What is your “What if” moment? If you don’t do the work, study or take that opportunity. What if you don’t accept salvation? What if I only did that? If only I did that.
You see yet; another call to action. If you are napping, you will be left behind.
God is faithful; He will give you strength and guidance and protect you from evil, just trust and have faith.
Read the 6 pointers in bold above. We have all the tools. All we have to do is DO! What if we don’t?
Don’t become one of those people that are referred to as, “if only he did that.”
What if you do? Go for it.
“Lord, I thank you for opportunities. Amen.”
