James 4:7-8 (KJV) Therefore, submit to God. But resist the Devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners, and purify your hearts, double-minded people!
This world is tough and maintaining one’s integrity is hard. Temptations are everywhere, and the devil, it seems, never takes a minute off. Your challenge is to see those temptations for what they are: dangerous and destructive of which will destroy your destiny in God!
What was true in New Testament times is equally true in our own. Evil is indeed abroad in the world, and Satan continues to sow the seeds of destruction far and wide. As people of God, we must ensure that we place ourselves accurately on the right side of these conflicts: The Lord’s side. How can we do it? By thoughtfully studying God’s Word, by regularly worshiping with fellow believers, and by guarding our hearts and minds against the insidious temptations of the enemy.
Point to ponder- It’s out there, and it can hurt you. Evil does exist, and you will be faced with it. Prepare yourself by forming a genuine, life-changing relationship with God and His only begotten Son. Have a great day!
