At 1 am, my dog woke me up to go out. She went running off to do her business, but I wasn’t expecting it, so I ran after her. The cameras were on and caught me scurrying across the driveway after her. I have to keep a close eye on them at night because we have coyotes that cross our property occasionally, and they could do a lot of damage to a small dog if given a chance. That’s why I’m late posting; I slept late.
Much like my dog, we are no match for the enemy alone, but with the Lord watching over us, we are safe from being torn apart. The problem begins when we leave his coverage. How do we leave his coverage? By sinning. If we give the devil entry, he will try to take more than you give him. If you sin (and you will occasionally), repent and return to the covering of the Lord. He is quick to forgive.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
