When Push Comes…Shove!

In its simplest form, living with a Biblical worldview means to listen to and do what Jesus says in every situation. He asked me to accomplish a certain task (it doesn’t matter what it was as Paul said in 1 Corinthians 10:31 that even eating is to be done His way) and this past weekend that’s exactly what I did. It felt great…until the enemy started pushing.
I was relieved the task was over. I felt a strong sense of accomplishment. Frankly, I felt good! Then, what seemed from like out of nowhere, I started to feel agitated. If I had just stopped to think about it (FREEdom principles), I knew it would be coming. Jesus said in Matthew 26:41 that we should “watch and pray” so we don’t fall. The moment you step out on faith in doing what Jesus tells you to do, your enemy will want to start pushing you toward your drugs of choice.
My filter, however, was in the “off” position. Not a smart thing to do and that is why there was no Monday post. It took me longer than it should have to process this agitation. What in the world did I have to be angry about? I did what Jesus said to do!
The enemy loves to attack right after a victory, so expect it (“watch and pray”)! Put up your shield of your faith and shove right back in the Spirit’s power.
