Yesterday I showed you some of the loopholes that you must block in life if the devil will not get you in life. Today, I want to show you more of these loopholes so that you can avoid them and be all that God wants you to be here in this life and in the life to come.
1. Overlooking Danger. In 1 Sam 21:7-22: 1-22, David overlooked Doeg the Edomite and that man was the reason why the Priests of the Lord were massively killed by Saul. Doeg was a danger which God showed to David. David could have taken care of it, he overlooked him. He took Doeg the Edomite for granted. Whatever danger you overlook, no matter how small can be very devastating. Deal with it now; don’t be like David in Vs. 22, who confessed to have been responsible for the death of the Priests. Don’t give room to the devil in your life, home or anywhere. Don’t overlook the signal of danger, deal with it. Do you know that it was one of the Amalekites that God ask Saul the first king of Israel to kill that he did not kill who took the crown on the head of Saul away. Sarah overlooked Hagar and that was the loophole in Abraham’s house and the devil used her against the true seed till today. Seek to be aware of your environment as a child of God and never give room to the devil.
2. Unholy Alliances: This is an easy way for the devil to get into a man’s life. Many have fallen victim of this and they were beaten flat down by the devil. Read 2 Cor. 6:14-16. Be careful of your relationships, they can be an automatic entrance of the devil into your life. An unknown factor is always a dangerous one so beware; Samson lost great power because of unholy alliance with Delilah.
3. Success Syndromes: Read 2 Sam 24, success is a very deep terrain that you need the grace of God to sustain. Success has brought about more failure than failure itself and if you cannot manage success very well it can be a major loophole for the devil to deal with you terribly. Some people wouldn’t have problem with women when they are still struggling but when money comes, the devil will also come, because of loopholes. Beware of STD’s (Success Transmitted Diseases), remember where you are coming from regularly, it will keep you from the devil, and don’t forget that the devil compiles the file of every champion and he waits to get them. So, Christian seek not your repose, hear what your Angel is saying, you are in the midst of the foes, beware! Don’t let success get into your head to do evil.
Prayer: Lord, I receive grace from you today to manage every success you are bringing in to my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
