Destroy it before it starts!

Tuesday, November 15, 2011 (5:20 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

2 Corinthians 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

As we've been travelling around the U.S., we've been trying to take extra care of ourselves, taking vitamins and disinfecting our hands regularly as not to get sick.

This got me thinking about God's design of the human immune system. Our immune system is designed to be proactive and not passive. Whenever germs, viruses, or bacteria invade our bodies, our immune system seeks to destroy these invaders before they become a problem.

Spiritually speaking, I think we can learn a little something from God's amazing design. When it comes to our thought life, we too need to become proactive and destroy sin before it establishes a foothold. If we don’t allow a foothold, we’ll never have to tear down a stronghold. When that invading temptation comes – attack it immediately, before it infects us completely!

Let's be sure to boost our spiritual immune system today, by taking some time in fellowship with the Lord, in His Word and in Prayer. When those "invaders" try to enter in, we’ll be armed and ready to obliterate them before they hinder our walk!

    That was a great and refreshing Biblical comment for me. I know
    that God is in control of all of us, and I do not worry about the future, because I know that He will save me before it's too late. He promises to take us out of the troublesome world before we get pulled into it
    and that's good enough for me. Whatever lies in the future is surely
    what God will use to reach the people who do not yet know Christ Jesus as their savior. God is faithful and just, He will do all He can to
    draw men and wormen to Him, even if it means to put the pressure on
    mankind. The Bible verse for this is in the new testament, but I am
    not sure where at this time. Maybe someone will look into it for reference.
    Thank-you for your comments.
    God be with you.
