Whenever a thing is done for the first time, it releases a little demon.
I found this quote quite interesting as I think back to certain times in my life where I made a decision to do something that came back to haunt me for awhile. Fortunately I didn’t get involved in anything that had terrible lasting physical consequences, but I do recall instances where I made decisions that I didn’t feel good about at the time. I just didn’t want to take a stand if it meant being ridiculed for being different.
All Satan is looking for is the tiniest of openings in which to start his work in any person’s life. He will start as small as he needs to and gradually make the opening wider and wider until we sometimes don’t know how everything happened as quickly as it did. In reality, he may have been at work for many months or years and we haven’t noticed at all.
Satan works very smart, is highly organized, and has much patience; many people are hooked deeply before they realize what is going on.
If you have asked Jesus into your heart, you have the awesome power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to always lead you in making right decisions. He will warn you when you are about to do something that could lead you into a trap.
As soon as you feel that something might not be right, or have a doubt about it, ask the Holy Spirit to show you more about what you need to do; then heed his warning immediately.
He will keep you from doing something the first time that might end up causing much heartache and pain in the future.
