What? Again? How did that happen we ask?
It seems to me that it comes around more quickly every year, or is it just that as we get older the months pass by more quickly?!!
We get worked up about how we will ever get everything done in time, let alone find the money to be able to afford gifts for everyone, especially this year when prices are rising indiscriminately and boy does the Devil like to rub in these facts. It’s a time of the year when he has a ‘hay day’ preying on people, pushing them into debt, particularly those with young children.
Recently I read a devotional that said some people think they can take on the Devil, yet the Bible tells us;
But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the Devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” (Jude 1:9 NIV).
If someone as powerful as the archangel Michael would not engage with the Devil, then how much more should we do to keep our distance from him?
James tells us, “Resist the Devil and he will flee from you” (4:7 NKJV).
This year more so than ever, in an attempt to resist the Devil, I will spend more time reading about the true meaning of Christmas. The book of Luke has 24 chapters in it which tells the story of Jesus. My advent calendar this year will be to read one chapter a day. What about you? You can follow it on the website.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power—Ephesians 6:10.
I do hope you have a Blessed time this Christmas.
