Pitfall Canyon

This week we arrive at Pitfall Canyon where we are encouraged to put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (Ephesians 6:11).

We are reminded that we arenít fighting against flesh and blood. One of Satanís favorite things to do is to cause division in the church. Sadly, he can be quite successful at it. If he can get us to look at our brotherís short comings, he can usually cause strife between us. If he can get us to fight against each other then he doesnít have to worry about us fighting against him.

This week, as you suit up for battle, remember who you are fighting against;

ďFor we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].Ē (Ephesians 6:12)

Daily Bible Reading

*Each day, write down two blessings God has given you.
*On Monday, write down two strengths and one weakness or challenge you face.
*On Saturday, check your progress.

Fighting the Forces of Evil

Animal trainers say that the secret of handling lions, tigers, and leopards is to keep them constantly afraid of you. The instant they get over their fear, they will attack. They are treacherous beasts and often gather courage for an attack when the trainer's eyes are turned away from them. One never knows when they will spring at their keeper if they have a chance to do it from behind. Our fight with the forces of evil is like that. Satan is always seeking to attack us from the rear or in ambush. He goes about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, but he is a great coward when faced with courage. "Resist the devil and he will flee from you" is as true today as it was when the Apostle James first made the declaration (James 4:7).

Jeremiah 15:15-21 O LORD, thou knowest: remember me, and visit me, and revenge me of my persecutors; take me not away in thy longsuffering: know that for thy sake I have suffered rebuke. (16) Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts. (17) I sat not in the assembly of the mockers, nor rejoiced; I sat alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled me with indignation. (18) Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, [which] refuseth to be healed? wilt thou be altogether unto me as a liar, [and as] waters [that] fail? (19) Therefore thus saith the LORD, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, [and] thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them. (20) And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I [am] with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the LORD. (21) And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.


Praise Reports

Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD. Psalms 150:6

Jody Gibson (Shirley Stantonís cousin) has been saved!

God has delivered him of his drug addiction! Keep praying for him as he begins his new life!

Donít forget to carry your pocket prayer list with you.  You can find many opportunities to pray for the needs on this list, even in the midst of your busiest day! You can take out your list and pray while sitting in your car at a stop light or in the line at a drive thru. You can pray while you pump gas or while you stand in line at the grocery store (instead of reading those silly tabloid headlines)! You can pray anytime, anywhere!

If you have a prayer request or a praise report that you would like to appear in the bulletin (and on the web site), please write it on the list on the table in the foyer or let me know before Saturday.

ROMANS 14:19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.
