A Web walk each day with Peggie through a home called Peggie’s Place! . . . .
I just KNEW there had to be an offbeat devotional coming out of my crisis one Sunday morning in Sunday School of all places – so hang on – here it is……and now, not a ‘mite in sight, thank the Lord!!
I am part of a wonderful Sunday school class that meets in our lovely chapel each Sunday morning, preceded by lots of good food fit for a king……So it would seem plausible that an uninvited group of hungry, flying beasts would want to crash the party and this “fun ‘n faith” time we enjoy each week – even if it’s really just WOOD they want!!
The first attender flew by just as our faithful teacher began a serious lesson exploring Scripture leading up to the Cross and Resurrection…..He (the taunter, not the teacher) was batted away by a class member near me, and I thought little more of it, until his friends started flying MY way headed for MY face. I too began batting the air, followed by friends behind me fighting – not the faith – but these flying critters as well.
The teacher taught on. You had to BE there, I suppose, but one by one, two by two, hordes of flying “things” kept moving through the air to harass and freak out his students…..It soon became apparent by someone’s sharp eye that indeed there was a host of flying critters gathered directly behind the speaker on the platform floor waiting to make their flight into our faces!
Back to the teacher, bless his heart, who had no idea what was going on, but out of the corner of his eye, as he continued teaching, could see us batting the air and behaving quite strangely……he was relieved, later on, to learn the cause of our bizarre behavior…..
TERMITES….lousy little TERMITES stationed along the ledge of the beautiful stained glass window, congregated onto the carpet, flying through the air…..there must have literally been hundreds of them, all awaiting their turn to fly away and freak us out! An exterminating specialist or someone must have been called, for the termites are gone – and now in “termite hell” where they belong!!
Funny story with a faith-filled thought for your day…….for perhaps you’re battling “termites” from hell flying around your world, headed your way, invading your space……..anxiety, fear, anger, depression, negative thoughts….never silent, ever present and freaking you out! “Help me, Lord,” you cry, and then what to do?? Head straight to God’s Word…..the powerful solution to your ‘mites problem…..
You see, bug spray and an earthly exterminator won’t do it – you need the help of Heaven’s Exterminator, and He is there – through His Word – for you today! Put on your battle gear – the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the Sword of the Spirit, the whole Armor of God found in Ephesians 6:10-18…and those ‘mites must “flee” out of your life in the Name of the Lord!
…..Let us all put on the full armor of the Lord and battle away those ‘mites of hell all over the world! They MUST BE on the move, right out of our God-owned lives! Now believe it, and let’s all enjoy a great, ‘mite-free, marvelous day in the power and victory of our Almighty Lord!
“…Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7 KJV).”
“…whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do, and the God of peace shall be with you (Philippians 4:8,9 KJV).”
Prayer: “Lord, I hate ‘mites–and they’re invading my mind! Thoughts totally out of order, uncontrolled chaos from the enemy of my soul. I resist his advances in the Name of the Lord. I plead Your Blood, I put on the Helmet of Salvation, I let Him finish them off, and I will go on my way, praising the Lord who fills my mind with GOOD things! In Jesus Name, Amen.”
