Don't be mad when a snake bites you, they are doing what they do. Be mad at yourself for thinking that you were different in the snakes eyesight. Don't flirt with sin. Don't compromise with evil, for it will not compromise with you. Satan will attack anything that is beautiful. You are a perfect target and your mind is a playground. Just as Satan comes as an angel of light, so his followers can come as workers of righteousness.
"But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light! So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness" 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 NLT
So often we look in the mirror and see what we want to see. Deception is not obvious. Self reflect today….pray the blinders come off. Humble Yourself. The world is beginning to look like 2 Timothy 3:1-5
'But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people."
Where are little compromises sneaking into my life?
Where am I establishing a pattern of choosing what is easy over what is good?
Am I starting to believe that it doesn't matter?
"Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is." Ephesians 5:15-17
