A Momentary Lapse In Judgment Can Cause Lasting Consequences
I couldn't help but reflect upon the events that recently transpired, which brought me to this point. The honor guard had just finished folding the flag that was draped over the coffin of my CO. The flag was handed to me and I presented this triangular-shaped banner to the spouse of my fallen commanding officer. The flood of emotions that came over me at that moment were absolutely unbearable.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
We need to be wise to the devices and tactics of the enemy or he will exploit our weaknesses.
If we know the "Word" of God (Holy Bible) we can't be outmaneuvered. An ancient warrior was fitted with armor, but he still had to know how to take full advantage of the protection it afforded. The devil will try to get us to battle on his own terms, like when he tempted Jesus in the desert. Jesus never deviated from the "Word" and He was victorious. Stick with the "Word" and don't war after the flesh (the weapons of our warfare are not carnal).
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33)
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: (Romans 5:1)
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. (Romans 8:6)
