God Thinking 57 - Apprehended by Faith 3

"Can I take you just a little further out on the plank of faith, where the invisible things of God start to take shape.

Along the old way of life, God posted signs in your life to assist you and I in our journey from self to God and through life to eternal life.

Don’t blame yourself too much when you look back wondering why you didn’t always have this kind of faith and wondering why you were so easily misled.

Along the way were signs posted by God for each path and each venture and each step of life, but we don’t read too well blinded by youth and passion

pain and mistreatment

lies and self indulgence. 

Blinded by living in the realm of the enemy without the power and authority to shake him off.
At one place along the way of life God put the sign STOP

But someone close to us, tricked us, put over that sign - full speed ahead.

At one juncture in our life, God put up the sign DEAD END,

But someone went ahead of us and covered over that sign with the sign, pleasure ahead.

At one place on the road of life God put up the sign, TURN RIGHT, 

But someone turned that sign around and we turned left.

Everything that God warns you of, your enemy invites you to.

And everything that God invites you to, your enemy warns you of.

It’s no wonder that it took so long for some of us to turn our lives around.  And it’s no wonder that so many, so very many haven’t. 

In a world with an enemy like satan, loose, roaming the streets, searching out the spiritually blind and those who have lost focus, it is no wonder that the battle has at times seemed meaningless and impossible."
