MORNING DEVOTION FOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 7, 2018 HIGHER EVERYDAY ON USHERLOADED ENTERTE.
STOP THE OLD SERPENT
According to Richard Blackby, “its a mistake not take temptation seriously. Mistake not to take temptation seriously. Many who have succumbed, thought they were strong enough to. Resist……. When wickedness surrounds you, never assume you are immune…….. Remove [yourself] from temptation’s way.” This is a timely warning for every day God-fearing youth.
ACCEPT REBUKES HUMBLY AND WISELY
Our text admonishes us to submit ourselves to God , resist the devil, and he will flee from us. As a Christian youth , must heed this admonition. Be warned, no one is spiritually mature or experienced enough to outwit the devil in his tempting trickery. When our lord Jesus Christ was tempted by the devil He stop him with God‘s word and not by self-Confidence. The old serpent I’d out to lure the unwary Christian into immorality, worldliness, and other vices, to defile and separate him from God. Never cease to say “NO” to Satan by quoting recant scriptures. Remain fervent vin the word of God , prayer and in evangelism. Surely God will make you victorious over very the old serpent.
CHALLENGE:- Resist the old serpent alwsyd and victory is yours.
PRAYER:- Dear Lord, employer me to resist Satan always in Jesu’s name.
