Moses’ mother hid him in a basket because she didn’t want him to die. That basket signified a lot of things, but one thing it shows us about his mother is that she was a defender. When God has a special plan or purpose, defend it.When God shows you something precious, defend it. When you see the significance you have in God, defend it.
The Bible tells me that Satan comes to steal and kill and destroy. (John 10 vs 10). Would we willingly leave our front door open for robbers to come and help themselves? Of course not! So why do we let the enemy steal from us?
Our joy – at the first sign of trouble or difficulty it goes out the window. Our peace – when we take our focus off God and not onto God, we lose peace. Our faith – when we start to let doubts in and don’t keep trusting His word.
You may have played the part of a defender in sport, you are there to stop the opposing team (the enemy) score a goal. A defender has to be switched on and diligent. Not with their focus elsewhere or asleep.
The Bible says “we are not unaware of the devil’s schemes.” (2 Corinthians 2 vs 11)
Watch out my friend. Be alert today. Don’t get robbed of your joy, your destiny or your purpose.
Be a DEFENDER. Do whatever you can, with whatever you have, to defend the life of God in you and those around you.
A daily devotion for a better way of living.
