Two Realms

October 6

"Living in My Presence means living in two realms simultaneously: the visible world and unseen, eternal reality. I have equipped you to stay conscious of Me while walking along dusty earthbound paths." Sarah Young, Jesus Calling

"Sorrowful, yet always rejoicing;
  Poor, yet making many rich;
  having nothing, and yet possessing everything."  
2 Corinthians 6:10

Just as there are two realms, the physical world and the spiritual world, there are two powerful forces at work...good and evil.  We aren't the ones who hold the power.  We are the vessels which listen and decide whom we will follow.  We give ourselves/humans too much credit. It's God who is working all things together for good and Satan who is weaving together schemes of downfall.

"'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.'" Jeremiah 29:11

"Submit there fore to God.  Resist the devil and he will flee from you."  James 4:7

Let's keep our eyes on the heavenly realm today; allow the Holy Spirit to fill us up and show us the way; and tell the devil in the might name of Jesus to go away.
