Here in our part of Florida we have what seems to be more than
the average brief power outage. They are usually only about a 2
second flicker, but that could be enough to damage a computer if
not protected by a Surge Arrestor. Surge arrestors are effective
for that purpose but not of a lot of protection from a direct
lightning strike. Pulling the plug is the best protection, AND be
sure to disconnect the phone line -- modems are a weak spot.
Christians have the ultimate surge arrestor in Jesus Christ -- no
need to pull the plug here. Every now and then, sometimes quite
frequently, Satan strikes us with his darts, but if we are plugged
into Christ, we have a shield for protection from the attacks. For
that reason we need to keep our relationship with Christ active
and sure. A friend of ours used to say, "Keep a short account
with God." That's good advice.
