But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent. 2 Cor. 11:3
Corrupted ~ Changed from good to bad, destroyed, degraded.
Lord Jesus, when I love You completely, no one can talk me out of it. When others tell me my faith in You is foolish, weak or misplaced, I shake it off easily. At those times, my love is like iron and cannot be corrupted.
But what about other times? Satan is always lurking. He knows what has happened to me in my life. He knows that, in certain areas, it will be harder for me to believe that you are caring, fair, and loving. He knows exactly where I could find it hard to trust you. So, he comes and accuses You to me. He knows just how to word it and just what event to target.
Help me be strong against his accusations. He is a liar after all. He weaves vicious rumors with NO foundation. Each one is designed to corrupt my love and make me back up from you. If I don’t trust You, I have nothing.
I need Your voice in my ear and I know where I need to go to hear it. I vow to preserve my time with you at all cost. Your Word is Your story, and my story, and I live in the wonder of it. When Satan comes accusing, I will say what I have taught my children and grandchildren. “Be gone, in Jesus name.” It’s pretty simple. Give me spiritual backbone, holy cunning, and airtight strategy. In Jesus name, Amen
