The Devil's Having a Heyday


August 13
First of all, I originally wrote "hay day".  That comes from the influence of living in a rural community with so many farmers cutting hay about now.  Looking at the phrase and realizing it wasn't correct I went to Merriam Webster for the definition of heyday.  "…used to express elation or wonder.

Then, checking out The Message the word heyday was there.

First off, you need to know that in the last days, mockers are going to have a heyday.
Reducing everything to the level of their puny feelings, they'll mock, 
"So what's happened to the promise of his Coming? Our ancestors are dead and buried,
and everything's going on just as it has fro the first day of creation. Nothing's changed."
2 Peter 3:3-4 

Here's where the whole heyday hunt started.  My husband had arrived home early from work in hopes of relaxing on his last afternoon before his faculty reported back for a new school year.  Vertigo had been raising its ugly head in my head, so I was in a sitting position on the floor cleaning out the bottom of a refrigerator.  At that level numerous overdo cleaning projects were popping into sight.
Let's just cut to the chase and the bottom line is... the atmosphere got testy.  The next thing we both realized was our lovely afternoon together was in a rapid downward spiral.  Being the spiritual leader of our home that my husband is, he grabbed me in his arms and said, "Let's both acknowledge the Devil is having a heyday here and start over!"
Praise the Lord we both know what it means to "Be on the alert for spiritual danger" and the Devil's heyday come to a HALT!

Be alert and of sober mind.
Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
1 Peter 5:8

Don't let the nasty dude get ahold of you and have his way!
