MORNINGTIME 3631by Benjamin Munsell on November 27, 2020
NOW THEREFORE FEAR THE LORD, AND SERVE HIM IN SINCERITY AND IN TRUTH: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and SERVE YE THE LORD. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye WILL serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: BUT AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD. Joshua 24: 14-15. To come to the Lord in Repentance unto Salvation, just because He says to, is the simplest Act of Faith a person can do. And it is the Best Choice a person will ever make in their lifetime. It is Obedience at its best and this type of Blind Faith will grow into a Life With Christ like you've never dreamed of, and it will last for all of Eternity. The Lord knows ALL the tricks and traps of the enemy, Satan, and that blind Obedience to the Lord WILL keep you from falling for any of them. Satan is very sneaky and subtle and will do all he can to try to weasel his way into your life hoping you'll not notice him. And the Lord knows ALL these things and WILL stop Satan at every turn, even as you blindly follow the Lord's Directions. As you study Christ through His Word, the Bible, you'll start to see and Understand Satan's ways, and this will bring Understanding as to WHY the Lord Directs you the Way He does. You don't have to know even one of Satan's tactics because the Lord Knows them all, and He will keep you fully In Him as you live IN Christ and move THROUGH Christ all the day long. If you'll Obediently keep your eyes fully on Christ, Christ Himself will keep you safe from the works and ravages Satan will do elsewhere. Ah, but if you do fall for a Satanic trap, just call out to Christ and He'll direct your steps back to Him in Faith and Forgiveness. Either way, DON'T FEAR SATAN, CHRIST HAS SOUNDLY DEFEATED HIM, and he no longer has ANY authority over a Believer. Follow Christ, and, Be Blessed.
