Hand it over!

and do not give the devil a foothold.
~Ephesians 4:27

Have you ever realized that you have given the devil a foothold in your life? I came to that realization last night, and it was so eye opening! A few months ago something happened and instead of moving on and leaving it in the past where it belongs, I have been dragging it along with me. While I have been dragging it, Satan has been standing on it. Cheering me on so to speak. It's like he's saying, I know it's heavy, but don't let it go! Christ on the other hand has been pleading with me to lay it at His feet. He is willing to take the burden, I just have to hand it over. I have decided to do that, and it is just so freeing! The burden has been lifted, and it feels GREAT!

Do you have anything like that in your life? If you do, I encourage you today to make the hand off. Don't give the devil something to stand on!


  1. What a great devotional and word picture of that Scripture verse. Very encouraging. Thank you.

  2. Amen! I went through a time this past year, when the devil had taken a foothold in my life! I did not have peace until I handed my burden over to the Lord! I felt so wonderful. Thank you, Lord! My children's bible verse for this week is Ephesians 6:10...Be strong in the Lord.
    So true!
