Blowing His Whistle

18 Jul

Blowing his whistle…

When I was a child, I remember being in a car with my mother. She was parking next to a sidewalk, and an old man with a mustache and a whistle came running out blasting his little whistle. He didn’t want anyone parking in front of his house. So if he saw a car parking there, he ran out with his whistle.

Most people would move because they believed they were parking illegally. But the truth was, there was nothing illegal about it, and the man had absolutely no authority to do what he was doing. But as long as he convinced people that he did have the authority, then he did. As long as they believed him, they took off.

So it is with the enemy. The enemy has no real authority. But if you believe that he does, he will. The voice of sin, temptation, fear, gloom, panic, despair, and darkness – has no authority. That means you don’t have to obey it or even pay it any mind. The next time the enemy tells you to do something, you just ignore it. He’s only blowing his whistle.

Through you we push down our foes; through your name we tread down those who rise up against us. Psalm 44:5

Listen to the voice of Jesus and ignore all those other voices – of sin, fear, bitterness, temptation, and gloom.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
