Sink Satan

Soul Snack 90/13 ... Sink Satan

"Usually desire to do evil is seductively disguised as a pleasant good."

Delight coursed through her hardening veins as she sunk into her couch. The Bible slipped from her lap. She held within the eager anticipation of long ago - a teenager on a first date. He did not stand before her but he did dwell next door (and in her heart). Now within her imagination his presence was as alive as the room was empty. With eye-lids drawn down a peace swept her reclining body as they chatted endlessly across the fence. An unusual joy flooded her soul. She was in his presence again; his wide eyes so affirming and his soft smile so welcome. During her daydream she spun her wedding ring distractedly and then recognized... she must yet again check-in to her heart!!!

Usually desire to do evil is seductively disguised as a pleasant good.

Always the desire to do evil challenges the strength to do good.

Regularly the soul whitewashes sin. Evil is diluted with deluding thinners. The pleasantness of the sin rolls a gentle invitation out. The actions appear so insignificant and the results are never considered.

Innocence can be morphed into indulgence as speedily as purity becomes pollution.

Great sin is cast as legitimate and deep evil is presented as light.

Sink satan this day - check the weaknesses and audit the vulnerabilities of your heart for satan already has.

for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. (2 Cor 11:14)
