When having lunch a couple of days ago at a restaurant, I noticed a wet floor caution sign that was shaped like a standing banana peel. The image of a banana peel from cartoons and comedies may bring back laughter as someone would slip and fall from the surprise banana peel. Wet floors and banana peels may be reason for caution, but there are even bigger evils in the world that are waiting to make us slip and fall!
Evil is lurking in the world around us. The devil is waiting to trip us up or to make us slip and fall. Even tiny missteps allow the devil an opportunity to enter our lives and lead us away from the path that God has established for us. Fortunately, God knows that we will sin and He provides us with love, support, and a means of redemption. We can call on God to help us, to guide us, to keep our feet on solid ground. When we do slip, we can also call on God for forgiveness and redemption through His Son, Jesus Christ! We don't have to slip on wet floors, banana peels, or the devil's plans, we can turn to God so He can help us keep a firm foothold!
Don't be surprised by the devil's "banana peels", but call on God to keep you on solid ground!
Thank You for leading and redeeming me. Help me to always have a strong foothold on the path that You have prepared. Through Jesus, my Savior, I pray, amen.
