Thought of the day:
‘It is not like that? If you do well, you will be well received; but if you do wrong, sin lurks at the door, and his desire is for you. But you have to master it. ‘
This is the wise counsel with which we are greeted today by God, a passage from the Book of Genesis (4: 7).
Reading carefully, we easily understand that in his harmful relationship with humanity, ‘Satan’ does nothing but ignite in the mind of the unhappy man the spark of decadence, and then quietly warm himself to the heat emanating from the fiery fire through which the limp being will burn. gradually in the coffins of sin.
A fire, which ironically, man maintains himself as a price debt.
Knowing, therefore, the reality that surrounds us, we should begin our day today by fortifying ourselves by the Word of God, and thus guarding our body, spirit, and mind from all the burning arrows of evil; because our enemy is one to be feared, and his experience is great when it comes to inflicting damage on the family of the Godhead.
His temptations will try to enter our lives through multiple shapes and colors, often imitating the very holiness emanating from the Trinity.
Do not forget! Satan’s purpose was not, is not, and never will be to bring us happiness, even if sometimes he is able to perfectly simulate it before the curious eyes of naive and permissive people with sin.
On the contrary, the ‘evil one’ wants to systematically destroy our faith by lying and crafting the truth.
However, we must not forget that the power and spirit of our Creator dwells in us, a weapon by which we can withstand any temptation.
Wherever you are, today I urge you all to respect the coat of arms of the children of the Godhead, and by choosing the ways of wisdom to cling our souls to His Word, because by absorbing in their own minds the beauty of the teachings, we will strengthen our faith, we will power in trials and we will chisel our deeds worthy of our repentance.
