|TODAY’S DAILY INSPIRATION|
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” 1 Peter 5:8-9
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Cor. 5:7
I’m not a big cheese eater. I rarely ever eat it. But I sure did as a child. And I remember the kind that had big holes in it all over. Yum. I think it was one of my favorites. Whatever it was called. So I had no trouble getting a mental picture when the Holy Spirit spoke to my heart that my faith has holes in it. Then He proceeded to explain. For far too long, I have listened to the devil’s lies and allowed doubt to eat big chunks out of my faith until it became filled with holes. Cheesy faith.
The devil’s main mission is to steal, kill, and destroy. And, if we’re not careful, we may allow him to sink his sickening teeth into our faith and to eat big chunks out of our faith. Sure, on the outside it may look like we have loads of faith. But inside? There may be holes.
The Lord told me the problem – and the fix. Stop listening to and believing the devil’s lies. Get rid of the doubt. Be strong in faith. Next time the devil comes around with his mouth wide open to eat another chunk out of my faith, resist him in the faith. Yes, FAITH. AMEN!
