“Fill your well with the Word.” A mantra we must preach to ourselves 24/7. In 1652, Thomas Brooks published an eye-opening book I’ve been working through for a couple of years. . . “Precious Remedies Against Satan’s Devices.” It’s been a very helpful read. Just like in sports, we must know our opponent and their strategies/tendencies.
This morning, I read Brooks’ words on how Satan destroys us by leading us into ignorance through the neglect of reading God’s Word. What results? Brooks’ writes, “Ignorance is the mother of mistake, the cause of trouble, error, and of terror; it is the highway to hell. and it makes a man both a prisoner and a slave to the devil at once. . . A man without knowledge is as a workman without his hands, as a painter without his eyes, as a traveller without his legs, or as a ship without sails, or a bird without wings, or like a body without a soul.”
Lord, give us an insatiable hunger for your Word
