Don’t Let Your Faith Get Dull! by Elaine Davenport October, 2009

mustard-seedMustard Seeds…

Every Saturday night while you’re thinking about getting your things ready for church;  the devil has already started.  Here’s the scenario…you become convinced that you know what you’re going to wear and all of the other things you plan to attend to.  Then, you can’t find the shoes you need or your money is missing…something.

It never occurred to you that you would face warfare in trying to get ready for church…but you do and you will.  Satan knows that if he can just keep you home a couple of Sundays in a row…he can get you to become dull in your faith and then he can have victory over you.  This is not a bunch of malarkey.  It’s happened to me before.  The devil was able to capitalize over my lack of disorganization and likely he would have defeated me, but I had spiritual heart surgery and got my priorities in order.

There were some tough lessons that I had to learn along the way.  You have the upper hand; don’t get slack in your faith.



And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.  Luke 17: 6

The Devil does not want you to go to church.  Don’t help him.    If he can get you to stop going; that will be a feather in his cap!

It’s no coincidence (there’s no such thing) that I want to talk about being distracted from God at a site focused on Spiritual Warfare.

I want to keep this simple.  The devil wants to do anything and everything to get you confused and in poor faith.  In my mind, poor faith is as bad as poor health.  Look at this:

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.   Romans 10: 17

It’s important to listen actively to the Word of God and you may have to go to where it’s being read and taught.

Here’s why:

Proverbs 4:20-22 says:

My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
