We humans are prone to various forms of amnesia. For instance, many people look to buy various items or “collections” to make themselves “feel” better when all it does is put them in debt, again and again. At times, we may be tempted to allow ourselves to fall prey to letting a bill slide “just this month” for the extra cash, forgetting how difficult catching up on the “one bill” is later. There are other types of amnesia too. Such as a young woman may find herself attracted to the same “bad boy” type forgetting how badly the last encounter of this type went or someone may go out to get “smashed” on Friday forgetting how sick they were last Saturday. All of these and many more scenarios are typical of our “convenient” loss of memory at times.
All of these instances have something in common, besides our lack of memory. Actually they have a couple things in common. First, they are all related to “the flesh” and living in the world and second they are all temptations of the enemy. Now you may say…”well, yeah we have to live in the world after all that is where we are”. Yep that is so true. BUT, our Master Yahushua, told us to live IN the world but DO NOT be part of the world.
So how can we do that? We can’t on our own, on our own we will fall prey to Satan every time, one way or another. He has had thousands of years to study our nature. He personally knew our family members long passed. He knows our weaknesses better than we do by far and on our own we are hunted like a fenced in deer. But when we live IN Yahushua as He lives IN us…now the enemy becomes the hunted and suddenly the odds are ALL in your favor! Now you have HSP rather than ESP…Holy Spirit perception. He lets you know what is around every corner before you get there and if you do fall into trouble…all you have to do is call out to your Kinsman Redeemer, your Messiah will save you, over and over and over. Till you learn to listen to ONLY Him. Till you learn to ask Him before you do anything. Until you realize that when you attempt to do your will and have your way…you always fall prey to a waiting predator, Satan. He is patient, he is smart, he is stealth and he is NOT prone to amnesia.
But you, my friend, more likely than not, if you are reading this have an on going relationship with our King of Kings. YOU are a child of THE Most High Elohim! You are a Royal Priesthood! That is your heritage. That is your birth right now. Satan holds NO sway over you IF you are doing what you should. If you are under attack look at yourself. Where are you falling short in your service to Yahweh? When are you not hearing Him? Who is controlling your life…you or Him? Once you do that you will find the problem, fix it and Satan will once again be hiding from YOU.
You have only to get into the passenger seat, let Him do the driving and when you meet with adversity or temptation…REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE.
May Yahweh bless you and keep you in the palm of His hand always.
