GIVE THE DEVIL AND INCH AND HE’LL TAKE A MILE

FootholdWe all face vexations from time to time in our family life. There can be a reason. God told the Israelites in Numbers 33:55, "If you will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be PRICKS IN YOUR EYES, and THORNS IN YOUR SIDES, and shall VEX YOU in the land where ye dwell." Read also Joshua 23:13.

When you face rebellion and worldliness, don't put up with them. Don't let them linger and hope they'll disappear. All your hoping won't make them go away. You need to talk and pray with your husband for wisdom on how to deal with them. You must take authority in the power of prayer. You must deal severely with all evil and not allow one vestige of it in your home.

It can often be difficult to make a scene and deal with something as we know we should. We'd rather not rock the boat. But if you don't, the problems will continually vex you. They will be like splinters in your eyes and thorns in your side. The problems will multiply. The enemy will take hold more and more!

Commenting on this Scripture, Matthew Henry says, "If we do not drive sin out, sin will drive us out." As the old saying goes, "If we give the enemy an inch, he'll take a mile."

Blessings to you today,
