|WATCH OUT FOR THE CREEPING THINGS|
“Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creepeth, neither shall ye make yourselves unclean with them, that ye should be defiled thereby.” ——Leviticus 11:43
Why did God create the creeping things such as mosquitos, ticks, lice or fleas? They don’t seem to serve any good purpose other than aggravate us to death. It’s amazing how the little creeping things are the things that are the most irritating, aggravating, frustrating, and instigating. Well perhaps God did it to give a spiritual illustration to us believers. It’s not the big things that will keep you from walking with God, as much as it is the little creeping things. Have you ever gone outside to do something and the mosquitos literally “carry you off” somewhere? It’s amazing how something so little can keep us from doing what we were called to do. Well, Christians are walking around today just itching and scratching because we have a bunch of little things gnawing at our flesh. If we are going to combat the little creeping things we must do the following: RECOGNIZE (where they live) A. Wilderness – if you are a child of God, don’t wander in the wilderness, get in the house, the house of God!
B. Stagnant water – Make sure the waters have been stirred where you dwell. Get around a church or a group of Christians who have living water flowing out of their bellies. REPEL A. Heat– Get on fire for God and they will turn away every time. They can’t stand the heat.
B. Get full of faith and the Holy Ghost-when one of those ticks or mosquitos try to latch on to your flesh and you are full of the Holy Spirit, they will have no choice but to fly away testifying and shouting, “ there is power in the blood”
Its not the big things that kill, it’s the little things. Watch out for the little creeping things!
