I cannot see for myself the deceptions that I fall under, the ones that specifically are taking me away from Gods plan. By definition if you are deceived you don’t know it. I rely on the Lord to reveal them to me(He always does). I also cannot see the deceptions up ahead, the planned attacks from the kingdom of darkness(that very organized invisible system and army that deceives the whole world) to neutralize my part in God’s plan(essentially to knock me out of the game). Our current lessons have been a very strong warning that we must actively remove ourselves from cosmic influence (stop hanging out with wrong thinking) and watch for the “little foxes” the small thoughts, the subtle, friendly attack of cosmic thinking (often brought to us by unsuspecting friends or family). I know I can trust the Lord in bringing me the warning before the attack comes.
It can appear as though a little cosmic dabble will do no harm; a little whining, a little complaining, a little unchecked thinking, just a little time with the wrong person. It can’t hurt, right? Wrong! I end up way out of God’s plan, totally unfocused on the Lord and completely focused on me. The result is guilt and fear, no fellowship with God and becoming a cosmic tool. Getting back in fellowship is amazing. Instantly, there is peace and focus, determination instead of self pity, no fear, no guilt, just confidence. Total grace from God to live the spiritual life.
