I Corinthians 16:13 NAS
Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
My husband and I decided it was time to sell our rental house so we contacted a realtor friend of ours to discuss our options and what we needed to do. We had downsized about four years ago but the market for housing sales wasn't too good at the time. So we thought it was best to rent the house.
Our realtor put everything together for us and contacted the tenants. Our home would soon be vacant and that meant two house payments again. We had been loosing quite a bit of money each month to begin with, but with the thought of now another payment, well it was a bit over whelming.
I go to God with all kinds of I wants and please let me have this or that. So going to Him about the sale of the house was natural. I know in my heart and mind God is in control. I also know it is in His timing and not mine. After praying I felt at peace knowing He will take care of it.
But there it was......that little nudging began. Satan sitting on my shoulder whispering in my ear. What if the house doesn't sell right away? What if the house will need so many repairs you will be deeper in debt? What if, what if, what if........ Satan has a way of worming his way into your everyday life ever so subtly. You start to doubt.
Dear Father I am so glad I can turn to you for everything. Thank you for taking care of my life. I know I am not in control, You are. Thank you for loving me and keeping the evil one where he belongs, far from me. Amen.
