Be careful of the fall
If you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 1 Corinthians 10:12 New International Version.
When I first became a Christian I naively believed I could take on Satan and win. I was standing on the firm ground of my conviction to Christ. Satan laughed. “Come on”, he said “have a beer.” Being an alcoholic I foolishly mistakenly believed I could take him on and win. I woke up in the morning surrounded by empty beer bottles.
Satan came a calling. “Look at you, calling yourself a Christian yet you got drunk last night. Christ is ashamed of you. How can you call yourself a Christian?”
Deep shame enveloped me as my heart cried out in deep painful shame my sorrow.
The Holy Spirit came and calmed me down assuring me that repentance brings forgiveness.
It was a lesson never forgot.
Do not ever be cock sure of yourself and say I would never do this or I am going to do that.
The wise man or woman instead says by Gods grace I will do this or not do that.And then, depend upon God, not self.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) create in me a humble heart that is not overconfident so as to be susceptible to Satan’s pray. I meekly request this in the true rock solid foundation Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus' precious love bless you today and every day.
