My friend, Gayle, sent me a quote that I loved so much I cut it out and posted it on my desk. It read, "Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders and says...'Oh, no...she's awake!!'"
At first, the statement made me laugh. Then, it made me think.
Would Satan say that about me? Do I live in such a way as to strike terror in his heart when I arise? Does he know I will live my day in such a way that will bring glory to God? Does he fear that my life will be so filled with love, compassion, and kindness that others will seek out why I live my life in such a way and I will then be able to share that it is Jesus who gives me such ability?
I don't claim to be any spiritual giant. I don't profess to live a life of perfection. Even at that, do I make Satan just a little bit irritated when I get up in the morning? Does he know it will be evident that I love God and want to live a life that makes God look good? Or, does Satan not worry about me because he knows I'll be so self absorbed, living my life under my own directive so he has nothing to worry about?
Good questions. Wonder if your answers will be similar to mine?
Wondering how Satan is feeling about me today, Gloria
