Deception isn't just a fact of life swirling around us; it is a fact of life inside us. The deceiver disguises what is undesirable and harmful beneath what he thinks we want. He has one goal in mind and is unscrupulous in his pursuit of it. The Bible shows us his tricks and helps us to prepare for when he is on the attack.

Never think for a minute that the war against sin is over in this life. There isn’t even a cease-fire. Countless believers have been ambushed on the heels of a giant step forward in faith. But we remember that Christ has defeated sin for us.

Our Heavenly Father is never absent from our pain and by His design, He shares in our grief. D. A. Carson said, "Christianity is uniquely comforting because only the Christian God plunged into the suffering we experience." What an amazing God we have!

"The Spirit of God is the centre of unity; and wherever I see the image of my Master, I never enquire of them their opinions; I ask them not what they are, so they love Jesus Christ in sincerity and truth, but embrace him as my brother, my sister, and my spouse: and this is the spirit of Christianity." - George Whitefield in 'The Folly and Danger of Being Not Reighteous Enough'

Sometimes the biographies of Christians may have a depressing effect, and that was how the life of Jonathan Edwards first appeared to M'Cheyne. He felt, "How feeble does my spark of Christianity appear beside such a sun!" Then he added these significant words, "But even his was a borrowed light, and the same source is still open to enlighten me."

The disorder of daily life is a product of disorder in the innermost places of the heart. Things are not the way they ought to be because we are not the way we are supposed to be. Which means our understanding of busyness must start with the one sin that begets so many of our other sins: pride.

The mysterious unfolding of God's purpose is seldom understood in the immediate. In most cases it is, as the old song reminds us, "Farther along we'll know all about it. Farther along, we'll understand why." There are features of God's dealings with us that in His loving wisdom, He determines to keep hidden from us (Deut. 29:29). We may be confident that nothing escapes His notice or catches Him by surprise. Although we may only see links in the chain, God sees the end from the beginning and is constantly overruling the events – global and personal – for His glory and for the good of His people...

Praise is prayer. When I lift up my heart to God to praise Him, I talk to Him and commune with Him. Prayer is not all asking. As Thomas Watson, the seventeenth-century Puritan, quaintly put it, "Many have tears in their eyes, and complaints in their mouth, but few have harps in their hand, blessing and glorifying God. Let us honor God this way. Praise is the quit-rent we pay to God: while God renews our lease, we must renew our rent."

Praise is man's legitimate and proper preoccupation with God. The late Senator Robert Kennedy visited Brazil and in the course of his trip was taken into the interior of the country to see some of the tribal situations. He was introduced, by interpretation, to an Indian who had not long been converted. "Ask him," the senator said to his interpreter, "what does he enjoy doing most?" The Indian's reply came as a surprise, "Being occupied with God." Convinced that the Indian had not understood his question, and that the answer should have been something like fishing or hunting, the senator insisted the question be repeated, but the answer came back again – "Being occupied with God." This seemingly insignificant Indian, now part of God's new creation, had discovered his chief end in life.
