A Thief In The House
A horrible thing happened to me today.....
a thief broke into my house.
It happened shortly after I awoke this morning.
I got up and began rushing about. I had a
thousand things on my list and was already
Quickly, I gulped down breakfast, took a shower
and got ready for work.
In my rush, I forgot to turn the security
system on at my house. It was just about a
half an hour later that the thief broke in.
Of course, he didn't make a sound. Just kind
of snuck inside, not drawing any attention
to himself. In fact, none of the neighbors
ever saw him.
But, I did.
You see, I WAS HOME when the thief broke in.
He naturally startled me, as I was unprepared
for his visit. He, of course, didn't announce
that he was coming and I certainly had not
invited him over.
And yet, I found myself face to face with
danger and I felt so powerless. I also felt
so very stupid, because this whole incident
could have been avoided if I had just taken
the time to turn the security system on.
You better believe I'll be turning it on
I thought I'd warn you about this guy,
because he's still on the loose. Chances
are, he's in your area. Possibly even
headed for your house.
His name? His name is Satan. You see,
this morning when I jumped up in my haste
to get started on my busy day, I skipped
my prayer time - opting to "pray later
today." In other words, I DIDN'T TURN ON
THE SECURITY SYSTEM.
My defense wasn't on, my guard was dropped...
..and when the thief came into my home to
attack me, I was unprepared to do battle.
He tempted me and I felt powerless. Like
I said, I also felt so very stupid, because
I could have avoided the incident if I had
just taken the time to pray.
My friend, the thief has come to "steal,
kill and destroy." And, as a Child of God,
you are on his "hit list." He'll probably
pop over to your house today. He may be
lurking outside your door right now, just
waiting to catch you off guard.
Take time to pray this morning. Bind Satan
from your very presence, to protect you and
empower you to do battle. In short...
...don't forget to turn your security system on.
