What can you do about those nasty little chinks in your life that can lead to heartache, grief and emotional pain and suffering that unravel your life? Those potentially fatal vulnerabilities Satan loves to attack?
In Part I of our series we discover what chinks are. In Part II we talk about the behaviors and actions in our lives that cause chinks. In Part III we explore our Perfect Protection System and why we need it.
Our protection system prevents Satan and his demons from destroying our lives and our testimony.
Satan rules this world. The Bible explains Satan’s role and his power over this world in several places. I John 5:19 says, “…the whole world is under the control of the evil one.” See also: 2 Corinthians 4:3, 1 Peter 5:8, Matthew 4:1-11, Isaiah 14:12-14.
But Christ’s death on the cross freed us from the power of Satan and sin. Our victory is already won.
We need the protection system because we’re going to remain on earth for awhile. As such we remain subject to Satan’s attacks. Satan is always looking for our weaknesses, our most vulnerable points of attack, our chinks. “Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8.
Now you won’t find this protection system at Walmart. It won’t be on the shelves at the grocery store. Hardware stores don’t even stock it. God’s Perfect Protection System is not vegetable, animal or mineral. You can’t download it to your computer or your Ipod. You won’t find it on the Internet. You can only find it in your spirit. In fact, you can’t get it anywhere on earth. God’s Perfect Protection System is the Lord Jesus Christ. We must “put on Christ” if we are to protect ourselves from from Satan’s wicked attacks.
We don’t have earthly enemies who attack us. We may have sharp differences and bad attitudes or ill will towards some folks. But Satan attacks us where we live, in our mind, our emotions, our attitudes. He aims for our thought life. And that’s not earthly. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness (the world) against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12.
If we’re serious about managing the chinks in our lives, we’ll need God’s Perfect Protection System to do it. God’s Perfect Protection System comes with free installation and a lifetime guarantee. It is a perfect way to deal with the chinks in our lives? Who do you trust to help you with your chinks? I had to call in an entire county crew to deal with the chink in our water line (See Chinks Part I). But what about the potentially deadly chinks? When the house burns down? When the bank repossesses your house? When the autopsy is positive for cancer? Do you try to deal with it yourself? God has a better way. If you don’t know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior follow this link to learn how you can install His perfect protection system and live forever in His presence.
