Always aware of the danger

It was amusing last night as I watched as many as four foxes deal with a skunk in our front yard.  They never turned their back on the skunk.  They were obviously aware of the danger that the skunk presented.

I was reminded that even as we become followers of Jesus and are to focus on Him, we must always be aware of the danger that the enemy of God poses to us.  While he has no power over us, he still whispers lies and places temptations before us.  One of the biggest lies is tells is that nobody will ever know.  When we give in to his deceit, it is as if we allow him to have power over us.  And he only wants to put us back in the chains that Jesus frees us from.

Focus on Jesus… put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil…
