Scripture: Song of Solomon 2:15
We often ask ourselves, how does the enemy work? He is identified in the Bible as a thief who resists us and the one who comes to steal kill and destroy. How does he steal? According to Solomon 2:15, he sends little foxes. He sends little foxes like a favorite TV show or fascinating hobby, whatever steals our time from the Word. He keeps us from what would be spiritually productive whether it is TV, our devices, social media or obsession with news events. There is a list too long to number. We all probably know what our own personal time-wasters are. Those are the ‘little foxes’. The ‘little foxes’ keep us out of the fullness of God’s inheritance. We must recognize the foxes and ask the Lord to show us precisely where and how they rise against us. Those little foxes’ will spoil the tender grapes, the new wine that the Father wants us to absorb and develop. We make choices with eternal consequences! Praying about the ‘little foxes’ has great potential to catapult us forward toward our inheritance!
