Bird’s Nest

I heard this little hmmm while listening to Dr. David Jeremiah via radio… You can’t stop the birds from circling overhead but you can stop them from nesting in your hair. Well, that certainly got my attention and reminded me of the time I was dive bombed by a mamma bird protecting her baby that had fallen out of its nest. No, not from a nest in my hair. That mamma was very aggressive. She had me ducking, weaving, and swatting when she came too close. Shouldn’t we do the same, duck, weave and swat at that little voice that lures us to do what we know we shouldn’t? Ephesians 4:7 tells us not to give Satan a reason to get his clutches into us. While James 4:7 is very clear about resisting whatever Satan throws our way.  We cannot stop temptation from coming but we can make a choice to run from it or give in. If we are children of God, then we have the assurance that “the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.” (1 John 4:4)
