With such a diligent pursuer on my trail it would be wise for me to watch my step- I would hate to take a wrong turn and meet this nemesis.
He’s ever watchful. He’s ever waiting. At any unforeseen moment he’ll strike and leave me naked; he loves to steal clean garments.
It would be foolish for me to arouse him, or to beckon him to where I reside. It would be ignorance for me to invite him as a guest in my home. This carnivorous lion knows no bounds.
From a far off distance his nose can detect the fragrance of any sin committed. Discreetly he slithers to the cracks in my edifice and welcomes himself into my house. He prefers an open entrance, but he surely will take what he can get.
His name is Satan. His name is Deceiver. He accuses the brethren and often we agree with him. He rides on the wings of pride and relishes in self. He’s a murderer of offspring; he’s after me next.
I don’t want to invoke his presence, but many of my actions deny this desire. For like a red rag to a bull is my iniquity to this prince of darkness.
Hungrily he awaits for my hand to take, earnestly he yearns for my foot to slip, passionately he craves for my mind to wander; at these moments he is sure to pounce. But most of all, what he truly desires, is for me to respond to his knock and let him waltz right in. When I willfully partake in the disobedience of rebellion, he is my welcomed companion in the deeds I commit.
But once inside, he’s kind of hard to kick out. Not because I don’t possess the authority to do so, but perhaps because I don’t truly want him to go. It’s easy to fall in love with death.
I must beware. I must take heed. For if I do not want to wrestle with this enemy it would be best to flee iniquity. I must be wise; prudence is the key. For like a bee drawn to honey or a bull to a red rag is my enemy drawn to me when I choose disobedience.
