NAVIGATING SATAN’S MINEFIELDS

YOUR DAILY MOMENT; Inspirational thoughts to begin your day
August 2, 2017

When I walk through my house, sometimes I feel as though I am navigating a minefield.  There are golf balls, tennis balls, dog toys and chew bones everywhere.  I have no children or grandchildren in the home, but I do have a dog who is not good about picking up her things.  Any misstep could have me or someone else slip on a ball or toy.  Though none of the items are large, each poses a threat if we are not watching where we step. At certain times the minefield represents, even more, danger such as at night or in low light conditions. At those times of increased vulnerability, we must be extra careful.

There is an analogy here for our lives. Satan puts many obstacles in our path. They may appear to be harmless, but if we wander too deeply into the minefield, we may not be able to escape unharmed.  He, Satan, is a master at taking advantage of us when we are in a more vulnerable state. That is when he seeks to trip us up and do us the most harm.

So how do we navigate the Satan’s minefields?  We must keep our lives “tidy” if we are to ward off the attempts of Satan to cause us to slip and fall into his snare. The best way to hold Satan at bay is to maintain a right relationship with God.  Use His Word, praise, and prayer as weapons to fight the master deceiver.  Ask God to give you discernment so that you may see the obstacles in Satan’s  minefields.

“So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” 1 Corinthians 10:12.
