  • The Serpent at The Door
    Thursday, July 28, 2022

    Boa constrictors enter the habitats of large mammals and coil there for days, waiting, alertly facing the entrance. Most serpents look for an opening, a hole, and wait there for the prey, sometimes for months. The enemy also is a serpent whose strategy is to seek a hole, an opening or foothold in your life. Now if you know that the enemy is seeking an opening into your life, the wise thing to do is identify that opening and close it off. The opening could be an ungodly attitude, a habit, or ungodly behavior. It may be something from your past like a hurt or a wound. It even may be unforgiveness, bitterness, pride, jealousy, idolatry, lust or a failure to trust God. It could be any entrance at all- gossip, that television show, that magazine, that internet connection, or that association that gives the enemy an opening to lie in wait to devour you. So, listen, my friend, and be wise. Close the gap, seal up that hole, and shut that door once and for all. Your enemy is seeking an opening, an entrance into your life. Don't give him one!
    From Message #987 - The Serpentine Strategies

    Today's Mission
    Inspect your "armor" today, set up hedges of protection and strengthen your defenses. Close that door to the enemy's plans.
