I received a slightly differently formatted version of this by email today and although I have seen various versions of it in the past, I felt it to be so pertinent to our times that I am taking the liberty of submitting it to this website for sharing.

Satan's Scheme: (WARNING: Important to Read even if you're Busy)

Satan called a worldwide convention of demons. In his opening address he said,

"We can't keep Christians from going to church.
"We can't keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth.
"We can't even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their Savior.

"Once they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken.

"So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish dinners, BUT
STEAL THEIR TIME, so they don't have time to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ.

"This is what I want you to do," said the devil:

"Distract them from gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"

"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.

"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds,"

he answered.

"As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work!

"This will jam their minds and break that union with Christ.

"If they don't give their husbands the love they need, they will begin to look elsewhere. That will fragment their families quickly!

"Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health and family for the good of the cause.

"It will work! It will work!"

It was quite a plan! The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to get busier and more rushed, going here and there.

I guess the question is where in your life has the devil been successful in his schemes?

Is God great enough to deliver you?

Are you humble enough and wise enough to seek His help?

Does being unalertly and unprayerfully "BUSY" mean: B-eing U-nder S-atan's Y-oke?

Please copy and share this even if you are too BUSY!

Love Jesus.

Philippians 4:13 --- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Thanks be to God!!!
