Awoman who lived by herself went home one day and discovered that she’d been burglarized. As you can imagine, the woman was very upset and went out and purchased an alarm system and had it installed; she also replaced her stolen items. A couple of weeks later her home was broken into again, and once more she had to replace her belongings. The woman was totally exasperated and appealed to the police for help. An officer responded and told her that being re-burglarized was not uncommon, because once a burglar finds a point of entry he’ll keep coming back…Once the enemy finds an unguarded area in your life, he'll keep coming back..

So it is with satan in the life of a Christian; once the enemy finds an unguarded area in your life, he’ll keep coming back until that point of entry is blocked. So we each have to ask ourselves–what’s the point of entry in our lives? What are our weak spots? Is it lust? Jealousy? Greed? Fear? Anger? Pride? Distraction? Alcohol? Drugs? Could it be that satan is not defeating us as much as our points of access are defeating us? Have we left ourselves vulnerable and open to repeated attack?
Help us continue helping others!
Luke 9:23 (NKJV)
Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
John 14:30 (NKJV)
I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me.
1 Peter 5:8 (NKJV)
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
