Gear Up!

Fourteen degrees may not seem like much to my northern friends but it’s cold in north Texas! As I was out and about this morning I saw last year’s foals flat on their sides, napping in the sun after a freezing night. Only one had its head up. He or she was on watch patrol, I guess. Horses, unlike us, are instinctively aware of danger and constantly on the alert. We humans can be naïve about the dangerous world we live in, and especially when it comes to spiritual dangers. The apostle Paul says put on the whole armor of God to protect yourself (Ephesians 6:11). In my experience, every time I’ve had a truly difficult trial in my life, it’s been right before God had a job for me to do. Satan knows our vulnerabilities better than we do and knows how to exploit them. Gear up!
