Morning Thought: On our New York trip, the enemy tried to take some cheap shots at us. Both Gideon and I got sick. I felt like I’d been hit in the head with a sledgehammer and thought I’d be in bed the whole two weeks. I feared Gideon also would be sick the whole trip as well. The second day in, the toilet overflowed two times and the showerhead burst, causing a good amount of stress to us all. And on another occasion, just when my mobile phone died, we accidentally lost my dad at Penn Station (it’s big and crowded). But God always led us into victory. The enemy gave his greatest ‘cheap shot’ when he condemned Jesus, an innocent man, to the cross. Yet, Jesus’ sacrifice created a ‘black hole,’ an event horizon that would soon swallow up satan, sin and death. Right now, the enemy and his hordes are spiralling down into the place of no-return, shooting rays of protest at God’s people as the serpent and his fiends fall into their eternal defeat. Death and hell have been defeated. Jesus has triumphed and in him you have the victory. “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place” (2 Corinthians 2:14, NASB).
