Devotions from Judy’s heart

We are told often to be aware of the enemy who seeks to “steal, kill, and destroy”.  We may picture evil lurking in darkness and ugliness etc. But sometimes it is hard to discern evil and we need to always be discerning because Satan also disguises himself as and angel of light.” II Cor.11: 14.  So we need to be on guard and need protection.  When I went outside one morning, I saw that the deer had used my beautiful huge Hosta as their salad. I was disappointed as it was eaten down to just a few inches above the soil. Those little stinkers!  The one next to it is huge too but not eaten yet! I need to spray and protect it or soon it too will be gone. Now those deer that often go through our front yard look so innocent but they often “steal” from me, just as the enemy of our souls is out to rob us. We need to be on guard and also look to the Lord to protect us and as it says in II Thes. 3:3, “But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. “
