God Thinking LXVII - You Are That Person 3

"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 sometimes we don't read too well when 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 you, tricked you, and put a sign over the sign  that God placed for you - full speed ahead.
At one juncture in your life, God put up the sign DEAD END,
But someone went ahead of you 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 you 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.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4
3.  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
 4.  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."
