Fun Friends! Smart devil!

All while growing up, through grade school, high school and college it was great to have friends. Everyone wants to meet new people and join the crown... As a Christian we have to be aware that there is a dangerous line to cross here. You see being a Christian will not always be the "coolest" thing to everyone, but its our commitment to our Heavenly Father that should always be our number one priority. To many times we want to follow the crowd, or we get sucked in by what we think is right but know that it is not. The book of Matthew tells us to "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves" (Matthew 7:15). You see the devil is way smarter than you give him credit for..........he comes to kill, steal, and destroy you (John 10:10), keep you from God's plans and blessings and steal your walk with Christ. And he will use what and whoever it takes! Watch out! The devil wants to miss lead you, he may come to you seeming harmless, and you will fall hook, line and sinker... It's as easy as getting a email that has a friends name on it and you open it for your computer to be taken over by a virus, then you find out it wasn't your friends email at all.... The enemy wants to slip in your life and then try and take you over by diverting your attention.

It seems as Christians we get a higher presence of the enemy and his "tactics" in our lives the more God is present and moving in our lives.. Thus being "When God is Blessin' the devil is messin'!" We have to stay strong in our faith! Surround your life with strong Christians, Bible believing, God fearing people. If your friends are keeping you from the presence of God, diverting your attention, or bringing you down it's a likely sign that the enemy is trying a fast one...

Proverbs 12:26 "The righteous should choose their friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray"

Be Strong in the Lord!
