Are you a dead duck?

Thursday, June 21, 2012 (7:00 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

Psalms 118:17 I will not die, but live, and I will proclaim what the Lord has done.

A farmer and his friend went duck hunting. Eventually, they got to talking about the things of God, as they always would. "You're always talking about these battles you have with the devil," the farmer's friend said to him. "It's so silly – I mean, I'm not even a Christian and I've never experienced anything like that."

"Yes my friend," the wise farmer answered, "but if you shot two ducks — one was wounded and one was dead — which would you go after first?"

"Well," he said, "I guess I'd go after the wounded duck – I can always get the dead one later."

"Mmm-hmm," said the farmer, "The devil knows you're a dead duck."

For those of us who are walking with the Lord today, be encouraged! Our enemy knows that we have potential to do great things for God, and out of fear, he'll try anything to take us out. This is so very evident by the constant battle we all face.

Let's stand strong against the devil today! And rise up to the Lord's calling upon our lives! We will fight and we will WIN! Because if God is for us, who can be against us?! And you know it — there's still SO much work to be done!!

    Satin does not battle with the non Christians because he likes them as they are, non Christian.  The closer we get to God the more the devil and his help mates try to turn us from God.

    As a struggling Christian, from experience I can say that the devil is right inside our own flesh. Not somewhere in the sky.  She is inside the flesh of our minds and therefore there is a constant battle of the minds. Between the carnal mind and the mind of the Holy Spirit.  Apostle Paul said the same thing: "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds"  [2 Cor 10:4 ] That strong hold is inside our minds.  The Battle of Armageddon is again the great battle of the 2 minds and finally Christ in the individual shall WIN! Praise the Lord Jesus Christ – The Lord of all Souls!  Amen.
