Collusion or Collision?

I am sorry that once again, the daily crumbs have been coming much less than daily. I hope that you're doing better than I am with finding quiet time to think about the things that are really important...

This devotional by Adrian Rogers was emailed to me, and the title didn't catch me, so it sat in my inbox, but then I read it. Wow!!! We are getting bombarded right now, it seems. I guess we need to cut the whining and up the prayers. I know it, now I need to do it!

"The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God." Romans 8:16

A farmer and his farmhand went duck hunting. The farmer said to his friend, "You're always talking about fighting with the devil. I'm not a Christian, and I never have to fight with the devil."

The farmhand answered, "Boss, if you and I shot two ducks, one was wounded and one was dead, which one would you go after first?" He said, "Well, I guess the wounded duck."

He said, "That's right. The devil knows you're a dead duck."

If the devil doesn't bother you, it's because he doesn't have to bother you since you and he are traveling in the same direction. If you turned around, you'd have a collision with him. Right now, you are in collusion with him.

Are you a child of God? Then, praise Him that He has given you the power over Satan and placed you on the pathway to see Him face to face!

Thanks for the reminder about why w often experience the trials. It is amazing to me that the ministry of Adrian Rogers goes on after he is gone home. I suppose that i something we all wish for...a lasting legacy of faith.



I really enjoyed reading these. I had never heard of Adrian Rogers but am so glad that I stopped by and feel inspired.
