Focus on Things of the Lord

As idle hands look for something to do, likewise the mind when inactive longs for something to keep it occupied. As you are aware, no doubt, there are two forces at work in our lives: Satan and God. If you are not focusing on the Lord, Satan will fill the void, and visa versa. So, of course the best thing to do to be able to resist the trappings of Satan is to keep focused and doing something worthwhile for the Lord or at least to keep the hands busy doing something productive. And perhaps, I should go one step further. If you are able to keep your hands busy doing something productive, it is a good practice to have the radio or tapes, or something on in the background playing Christian music or listening to good Christian radio hosts like John McArthur, Charles Stanley, etc. If the mind is hearing and focusing on things of the Lord, it is not focusing on things of the devil. A scriptural verse which condenses all the above is found in Col. 3:2: "Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth." (King James Version)

Evil Spirits

In the last few days I have had a discussion with folks who claim to have been visited by spirits. Not the alcohol spirits of course. LOL

Seriously though, believers have no need to worry about such things as we are protected by the Holy Spirit of God. But UN-believers unfortunately are opened to such visitations firstly because they are not believers, and secondly because often enough they open doors to evil spirits by the things they do., ie.being involved in drugs or directly in the occult word by means of ouija boards and things of the sort.

Also, as we are heading into the last days, God is allowing the evil spirits to do their evil works upon an un-regenerate generation. Most of the world has turned their backs upon God, so God is giving the world what it wants, a world without Him, and therefore darkness.

It is not hard to see the truth of this as we read and hear the daily news where evil is rampant everywhere by way of the deeds of murder, theft, kids shooting kids in school etc.

This is sad, yet exciting for believers as we know that the more prevalent the evil of the world is becoming, as was the world in the days of Noah, we know that the Lord is coming soon to take home His own.

Luke 21:28(KJV): "And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh."
