Satan is always trying to trick us and today’s devotional exposes one of his old favorites. Don’t let him fool you. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Matthew 7:15 (ESV)“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
“It very frequently happens to me that somebody calls to see me professing to have a message from God to deliver to me; it is usually some crack-brained individual or other who is not quite right, in the upper story; but I will not receive messages that come in that fashion; if the Lord wants to say anything to me, he knows where I live. I feel inclined to talk to these people as John Bunyan did to the Quaker who went to Bedford jail, and said to him, ‘Friend Bunyan, the Lord has sent me with a message for thee, and I have been half over England trying to find thee.’ ‘Nay,’ said honest John, ‘thou art telling a lie, friend; for if the Lord had sent thee to me, he would have directed thee straight here. I have been in this prison for the last twelve years, and he has known all the time where I was.’ These roundabout, cross-country messages do not come from Christ at all.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLVII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1901), p. 141]
