Don’t let Satan get a foothold!

One of my favorite stories is about a man who wants to sell his house. Then one day a buyer says that he will buy it and the owner agrees, but says  “if I sell you the house for that price I get to keep the nail above the front door”.  The buyer thinks about it and says sure.  A few years later the original owner comes back and says “I  want to buy my old house back at the same price I sold it to you”.  The current owner says “no I like the house and I want to keep it”.  So the original owner who still owns the nail above the front door hangs an old rotted piece of meat on the nail.  This of course makes the house smell and unlivable.  So the family leaves and they end up selling the house back to the original owner.  You see when we allow Satan a place in our lives no matter how small he still owns us.  He has the ability to take everything we have worked toward for Christ and destroy it.  Continue to examine yourself for cracks that Satan is looking to get a foothold.

Verse of the Day:1 Peter 5:8 “Be alert and of sober mind.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour”.
