The morning sun has made it's way above the trees. It has greated me with a beautiful warm glow that I can feel penetrating into my room as it streams in from the windows. I am sitting in the beams...reading the TRUTH, and observing.
The pollen on the trees outside my window is dancing in the breeze. The sunlight makes them glissen like gold. I notice I am a bit cooler...a chill has overtaken my warmth. The sun is a bit dimmer...not yet hidden. I look out.
The clouds are slowly encroaching. A light hazy look is now over the sun...but a gray glooming mass of clouds is soon to overtake its radient beams.
Sin is like these clouds.
Death comes crouching in...slowly...unexcpetedly. Then, we are over taken.
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (1Pe 5:8)
Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am being tempted by God," for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. (Jas 1:13-16)
Stand firm...Be on guard...Put on the Armour of God that you might stand!
Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. (1Co 10:12-13)
Do not allow sin to steal your beams of radiant light! Stand and be on guard. God IS faithful. He has and will provide a way of escape. He will give you wisdom to thwart the enemies plan. You can remain in the glorious, warm, golden beam of the Son...whose Light shines far more radiantly than the sun in the sky!
I am praying that our eyes are opened to the encroaching clouds. I am praying for wisdom...strong defenses...and VICTORY! I am praying that the peace of God that surpasses ALL understanding will be our refuge so that we can stand and stand firm in HIS power against the devour!
Love to you all!
