How many times has temptation reared it's ugly head? True story. As I was gathering carts in the parking lot of where I work after closing, I noticed a cart with a box on the bottom of it. In the box there was some very expensive international beers. Someone had drove off and forgotten they had it. Now the devil, said" hey put that box in your car even if you don't drink beer" "no one will know" As I came closer and closer to the stores door. The voice still persistent said "no, what are you doing?' I answered with my inside voice, "The right thing" God got this! I asked my supervisor to leave a note on the box, someone will be coming back for this. I thank God everyday and ask for that hedge of protection. Firstly, I need it. Secondly I want to be able to go up against the devil with the help and support of God. Scripture says "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" Luke 6:31
Always stop, pause, rebuke. Try not to cave in to the devils whims. Once he or she is let in, they grab a hold. We have angels, when asked will stand up to the wiles of the enemy.
