Christian Devotional by Pastor Cecil Thompson
“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”
I frequently receive messages from readers who feel as if the enemy of our souls has his weapons trained directly on them. They seem to give Satan more credit than he deserves.
I have been thinking of a few questions that may help to put things in perspective.
- Who is more powerful, God or Satan?
- Who is the defeated foe, God or Satan?
- Who wants to make your life miserable, God or Satan?
- Who wants you to allow Him to fight your battles, God or Satan?
- Who wants to tempt you into giving up, God or Satan?
You could add many more such questions. The important thing is to come to the same conclusion that Job did in today’s Scripture. It is not just hearing about God, but opening our spiritual eyes to see Him ready to meet our need.
Blessings dear hearts. May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
