Do remember the TV shows where it showed a character trying to make the right decision and there would be a devil dressed in red with a pitchfork on one shoulder telling them what to do. On the other shoulder would be an angel in white with a halo trying to discourage them from taking the devil’s advice. We have to be cautious of the devil’s schemes when we are hinging on decisions for our life. Christ becomes our conscience and will lead us in the right direction. We have to be strong in God’s word so that we can decipher right from wrong paths.
For thus says the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel:
“ In returning and rest you shall be saved;
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
But you would not,
And you said, “No, for we will flee on horses”—
Therefore you shall flee!
And, “We will ride on swift horses”—
Therefore those who pursue you shall be swift!
