BIBLE STUDY / DEVOTIONALS No Threat to the Enemy

No Threat to the Enemy

“Therefore He says: ‘Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.’ “—Ephesians 5:14

The Bible tells the story of Samson, who had incredible potential that was largely wasted. His extraordinary physical strength was given to him as a gift from God. He also had the Lord’s blessing on his life. Samson could have been one of the greatest leaders in the history of Israel, but instead his life, in effect, became an example of how not to live.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


Samson was a he-man with a she-weakness. When we think of Samson, our mind usually goes to Delilah and how she cut off his hair and his strength was gone. In reality, it was a series of small compromises that ultimately led to his demise with Delilah. He lost touch with God. Then he fell asleep with his head in Delilah’s lap. Talk about sleeping with the enemy.

I fear there are many in the church today who, like Samson, are asleep when danger is imminent. Some have grown complacent and lackadaisical. They’re kicking back and taking it easy.

Maybe the devil looks at them and says, “Why bother? They’re no threat to me. They’re just sitting there on the sidelines, preoccupied with themselves. They don’t care about living a godly life. Why bother with them? They’re already where I want them.”

That is how it is with far too many Christians today. They’re immobilized. They’re sterile. They’re right where the devil wants them, so he doesn’t bother them.

However, if you were to say, “I’m facing conflict. I’m facing temptation,” that would be an indication that you’re moving in the right direction as a Christian.

While it’s true there is a devil who is powerful and tries to trip us up, it is also true that our Commander in Chief ultimately will lead us to victory if we stay close to Him.
