S.C.U.D. Satan Continuously Uses Distractions. He’s always firing S.C.U.D. missiles at us in an attempt to discourage us and draw us off course. I got that phrase from Gloria Copeland’s book “To Know Him” (The book is awesome and I encourage anyone who desires to have a closer relationship with God to check it out.)
S.C.U.D. comes in many different forms. It’s like that ol’ flesh devil constantly sends a conveyor belt of thoughts through your mind and wants any of it to stick. He thinks he knows you. He’s heard you talk before. He’s seen what’s happened to you in your past. He sees what’s happening to you now. He’s seen which S.CU.D. missiles have landed perfect shots before and he lobs them again. He possessed that family member or baby sitter and caused them to hurt you. And now he tells you that you’re worthless and that you’re damaged goods and no one will ever want you. He was in the doctor’s office when you heard the word from the doctor and he’s lobbing fear missiles at you. F.E.A.R. False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear that you won’t be around to see your children grow up. He was standing next to you at the ATM and saw that you have insufficient funds and you need gas for your car and food in your refrigerator. All of these S.C.U.D. missiles can easily throw you off course, if you allow it. So you must eradicate these S.C.U.D. missiles before they land! And it’s in these times, that you must encourage yourself in the Lord. You must know you are who He says you are!! 🙂
– You are the righteousness of Christ
– By His stripes you were healed
– You abide in Him and His Living Word abides in you
– You are more precious than the lilies of the field and the birds in the air
The same way He takes care of His birds and flowers, He takes care of you, IF you trust Him the way the birds and the flowers trust Him.
AND, He tells us no weapon formed against you shall prosper. To prosper is to increase, be healthy, and flourish. So God us that no weapon that formed (and the S.C.U.D. will form) shall flourish. That’s a promise.
God’s Living Word tells us to abide in Him and His Word will abide in us. To abide is to “continually dwell”, “to live in”. If you have children are they safe in your house? Of course they are! No matter how old they are, it doesn’t matter what’s happening on the outside, as long as they are in your home, they are safe from the wiles of the world. As much as you love your children, God loves us infinitely more. So when S.C.U.D. missiles are launching at you… Go Home! Go up under the Wings of the Almighty. Where no weapon shall prosper, and S.C.U.D. missiles cannot land.
Be Blessed and Have a Fantastic Day!
