There is an owl couple that lives in the trees surrounding my home. Sometimes they make their presence know by screeching, other times they quietly watch the squirrels, and my little dogs, waiting for the perfect opportunity to snatch one up. My son-in-law captured a picture of them snuggling, trying to convince me that they were more than predators that scoop up their victims while they are still alive. I must admit that they are cute when they nuzzle one another, so I decided to name them! Now, I have Ahab and Jezebel keeping watch outside my home. I used to rebuke them every time I heard them, because they remind me of the presence of evil, but I’ve relaxed a bit, being we are always surrounded by evil. We have to pray for protection, and trust that God has us covered. The lesson today is to remain in communication with the Almighty, and never take your eyes off of Him, follow His lead, and you will be victorious over the likes of Ahab and Jezebel.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Matthew 6:13
