May 16, 2023

On Friday, May 12th, I shared with you that an alligator had crawled into our pond and that he would probably move on because there wasn't anything to eat there. Instead of waiting for this 9-foot monster to leave, we called to have him removed. Last night, a trapper came out, who happened to be a cousin that I had never met! I guess I come from a line of wild but brave people! Because the gator was hungry, he buried himself in the mud near the shore beside the dock to ready himself to pounce upon his next prey. It was the perfect place for the trapper to get to him. He brought out his tools, and with skill, he lassoed him. Richard and I helped bring him to shore and load him in the trailer. It was quite an experience. Even though I consider him a representation of the enemy, he's just an animal, and my heart goes out to him because God created him, and he was only looking for a quiet place to exist. 

The point of my story is that you cannot just allow the enemy to settle into your home. You must take action; that's why God has given us the tools to remove him. However, sometimes you might need to call on others in God's family to help intercede on your behalf. Don't go it alone; ask for help. There are others whom God has gifted with intercession. They have the tools and the skills to help you remove the invader. 

praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, Ephesians 6:18
