“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons” (1 Timothy 4:1)

To whom do you listen?  Do you test the spirits?  Take this admonition to heart and you will do well.  The wicked one hates you and wants you to go astray.  The Lord has died for you so that You may walk with Him.  Be on the alert and be aware that the is the battle which rages around and in you.  Hold fast to what is true and do not fall away as some have but live in the truth of, and response to, the Spirit Who has been given to you.

Lord, I have all I need except perhaps one thing, and that is the diligence to continue paying attention to these things. Help me, I pray, to have a clear mind, seeing the world around me, both the good and bad.  Help me to hold fast to the Gospel delivered once for all.  In and through all things, guide me in Your goodness to be faithful and not to fall for the deceit of the devil.  Keep me faithful.

Lord, You died in order that I might live into the eternal life You give by grace.  Guide me, Lord, so that I may not fall for the temptations of the wicked one or believe his lies.  You are the truth Lord and You have come for me.  Guide me in the way of true faith and help me to hold fast lest I fall for the schemes of the wicked one.  Lord, You know what I need.  Thank You for providing for my every need.  Amen.
