“When It Comes to the Devil…How to Think”

BIBLE MEDITATION: 
“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.” Romans 12:21

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
There are two mistakes people make about the devil. One, they get into demonology—always studying, wondering, and talking about demons. Their focus rests on Satan rather than on the Lord Jesus. The Bible says we’re to resist the devil; it doesn’t say we’re to chase him.

On the other hand, there are those who are flippant about the devil. They have nicknames for him and think he’s a cartoon or fantasy.

The truth is, we have a powerful adversary, the devil. Peter likens him to a roaring lion! A mature Christian recognizes that he has an enemy. He respects the power of the enemy. Then he clings to the power of the Lord Jesus Christ to overcome this great adversary.

ACTION POINT:
Is the lion prowling around your life? Take up the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and break free from his jaws of destruction.

Thanks to Kathy Hull for sharing the following.

Wisdom is God’s gift to mankind.

We all have something … something to think about and even change our outlook and our behavior.   Wisdom comes in many packages and ways.   After all, GOD works through many different people.

So today we will take a humorous look at what could be called “Backyard Philosophy,” or even “Nutshell Philosophy.” Though said in a simplified way, it still gives us the perception of what God intends us to know and share.

Enjoy its simplicity the logic —

1. Be Fishers of Men…. You catch ’em, He’ll Clean ’em.

2. A family altar can alter a family.

3. A lot of kneeling will keep you in good standing.

4. Don’t put a question mark where God put a full stop.

5. Don’t wait for 6 strong men to take you to church.

6. Exercise daily… Walk with the Lord!

7. Forbidden fruits create many jams.

8. Give God what’s right, not what’s left!

9. Give Satan an inch and he’ll be a ruler.

10. God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called.

11. God grades on the cross, not the curve.

12. God loves everyone, but probably prefers “fruits of the spirit” 
over “religious nuts”!

13. God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage.

14. Having truth decay? Brush up on your Bible!

15. He who angers you, controls you!

16. He who is good at making excuses, is seldom good for 
anything else.

17. He who kneels before God can stand before anyone!

18. Kindness is difficult to give away because it keeps coming 
back.

19. Most people want to serve God, but only in an advisory 
capacity.

20. Never give the devil a ride! He will always want to drive!

21. Nothing ruins the truth like stretching it.

22. Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.

23. “Pray” is a four-letter word that you can say anywhere.

24. Prayer – Don’t give God instructions – just report for duty!

25. The Will of God will never take you to where the Grace of God 
will not protect you.

26. This Church is “Prayer Conditioned”!

27. To be almost saved is to be totally lost.

28. WARNING: Exposure to the Son may prevent burning!

29. Watch your step carefully! Everyone else does!

30. We don’t change the message, the message changes us.

31. Wisdom has two parts: 1) Having a lot to say.  2) Not saying it.

32. Worry is the darkroom in which “negatives” are developed

33. The work will wait while you look at the rainbow, but the 
rainbow won’t wait while you do the work.

Meditate on these words, and may God give you the deeper understanding and implications of these thoughts, in the light of His love.  Be reminded that God answers all Knee Mail!

God’s peace be with and in you.
