Let Them Not Rule.

 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous (deliberate, willful) sins;
Let them not rule
and have control over me. Psalm 19:13 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

There are certain inherited sins in us all as well are a fallen race.

The only way to conquer them is through the submission unto the all power of the Holy Spirit.

I know, that is the only way I beat alcoholism.

Have you ever seen a row between two folks and just before it comes to blows a friend steps between one of them and prevents him from getting into a fight? He does so because he knows the other man or woman will beat the snot out of his or her friend. The ringer is laughing at the sucker and egging them on to fight just for the perverted pleasure of fighting.

That is what the man in the above verse is saying.

Satan knows our weakness and will work on it and present it to us in an appealing manner. The temptation is too strong for us. That is when we need to call in the supreme Superman to save the day. His name is The Holy Spirit.

There have been numerous times the temptation was so great I thought my head was going to explode. I called out in desperation :” Come now Holy Spirit, please hurry or all is lost.” It may sound incredible but it is true, the temptation was immediately taken from me.

Satan drools when he sees foolish Christians think they are strong enough to resist him. They are the easiest prey.

That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

Without the Holy Spirits help we all fall away from Jehovah and towards satan. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ganan (The Lord is Our Defense) for being my defense against a wily foe who can easily destroy me without You but cannot touch me with You. I give thanks in the name of He who defeated satan on the cross and at the resurrection Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Like a Roaring Lion.

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8 New King James Version

Lions stalk unseen in tall grass. They charge quickly and roar to paralyze their prey. They take their prey with no mercy, many times eating it alive.

So too does the devil and his minions prey upon Christians. Just when you think it is safe is when they attack.

 

That is why we need the Holy Spirit to be our guide in life. He is like the birds in the trees that sound the alarm when they see the lions approaching. When you have a gut feeling not to go somewhere or do something you had better pay attention. That is the Holy Spirit chirping to you of appending doom.

I can think of when a tempting contract was offered to me and a strong feeling said to not walk but run away from it. It was hard but I obeyed and found out later is was a very bad contract that would have caused me a lot of grief.

It is also why we need good Christian mentors in our lives, because many times they have fallen pray to some of the devils schemes he may be preparing for us.

Prayer: Please Jehovah KaEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to Your protective voice so I do not fall easy victim to one of the tricksters schemes. I humbly request this in the name of He who always exposed the wicked one Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day
