Be Prepared!

High beams on.

Hands gripped tightly to the wheel.

Feet firmly planted on the floor board.

Eyes shifting from left to right. Right to left.

Anticipating Bambi's daddy, or cousin, or aunt, or uncle, or grandma, or baby, or whom ever to leap into my path at any given moment.

Dead and alive.

I see them all the time.

Those hairy four legged beasts.

Some have horns. Some do not.

Some have spots. Some do not.

Some choose to be loners. While others come in herds.

As the driver of the vehicle, one can NEVER know what said
beast will do.

Will it jump?

Will it freeze with fear?

Will it continue to munch the yummy snack it has found?

One can never know. MUST be prepared.

Be prepared for ANYTHING.

Beloved, you and I live in a dark world.

A world that is ruled by a being who desires to jump into
our paths and wreck our lives.

At times he stands on the sidelines just watching and waiting.

Other times he creeps slowly to the edge, eager to see how we will react to his presence.

And, then there are those times when he stands smack-dab in the middle of our paths, daring us to move forward.

Do we move forward? Do we continue traveling on?

Or, do we freeze in fear?

Do we try to busy ourselves in hopes of ignoring the danger that lies ahead?

What do we do?

Precious ones, we MUST be prepared.

Hands tightly gripped to the Sword of the Spirit.

Feet firmly planted in His Truth.

Eyes open wide.




So, that when the enemy leaps into our paths will not freeze in fear, we will not busy ourselves hoping that if we ignore him he will go away, but rather we will continue moving forward on the path God has paved for us to travel with confidence because we are prepared, armed, and dangerous warriors in His army.

"Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil
walks about like a roaring lion,
seeking whom he may devour."
1 Peter 5:8, NKJV

Living deep in the country I am used to keeping an ever watchful eye, for deer, rabbits, coyotes, and other surprises.

I love, just LOVE the way you aligned all this with watching for the enemy of our souls.

Great post!

I love the comparison. About 3 years ago, in the spring I was hit in the drivers side door by a male deer that had just lost his antlers. It was one of the scariest thing so I now have a true visual picture of the devil attacking out of no where. Again thanks for giving me the comparison.
