A recent hack allegedly by China appears to have compromised the personal information of millions of federal employees.
Cybersecurity is a serious matter with our personal, financial, and medical data at risk of being comprised or stolen by hackers.
However, just as serious is the potential hacking of our faith by Satin.
Adam and Eve fell victim to the original hack when they fell prey to Satin as he used the serpent to hack them out of the Garden.
Now the serpent was more subtle and crafty than any living creature of the field which the Lord God had made. And he [Satan] said to the woman, Can it really be that God has said, You shall not eat from every tree of the garden? Genesis 3:1
Paul reminds us in Ephesians 6:11 that we should “Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
Satin has devised many schemes for hacking our faith as he uses:
- Popular culture and today’s music, movies and books
- People in disguise with intentions of no good
- The internet with easy access to pornography, unseemly materials and illegal opportunities placed in the palm of our hands with smart phones and tablets
Prayer is our ironclad defense against Satin’s hacks.
Jesus in Matthew 26:41 tells us the importance of prayer:
“Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
As humans we are like sheep; frail, weak and easily subjected to Satan’s hacks.
Guard against Satin’s hacks by spending time in prayer!
For as Jesus tells us in John15:7 “If you live in Me and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.”
