Acts 28:5 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Acts 28:5

But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects.


As I was reading this today, it got me thinking about all the different times the enemy has gotten his teeth into me and how God has allowed me to shake him off every time. It’s not because of anything I am or have done but simply because of Who God is and His immense love for us! Everyone thought Paul did something wrong because the snake attacked him, when in reality, God was just showing us that things are gonna happen, but no matter what, He is still in control.


I love how Paul doesn’t freak out or say, “Why me?” but just goes about his business, probably laughing on the inside and talking to God about how this is gonna blow their minds!


I encourage you, if something has latched onto you from the enemy, ask God to help you shake it off into the fire. If you are in Christ, then you belong to Christ, and this world has no control over you anymore. There have been many things that have sunk their teeth into me, but God has always protected me from the poison. Bad things happen to the righteous and the unrighteous. There is no getting around that. The only difference is that we who are in Christ don’t have to go through it alone, and we don’t have to fear the bite!!!!


Be bold, be humble, be loving, be open to being used by God for His glory, and always fix your eyes on Jesus and His eternal love for you!!!


I love you all. God bless. Glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!!
