After several days thinking it would go away I finally decided it was time for a trip to Urgent Care. The itching, the blotchy redness wasn’t going to go away on its own. I hadn’t taken any prescription medicine in 3 weeks and yet their prognosis – it probably was caused by the pain pills or even the anesthesia before surgery. It didn’t seem possible after so long yet they said, “It does happen, and can actually happen up to a year after taking some medications.”
I fear a similar thing can happen to us spiritually. We may think participating in some questionable activity or even thought won’t have any effect on us; but perhaps days, weeks, even years later it can rear its head and cause more problems in ways we didn’t expect; leading us deeper into sin.
Satan is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may destroy. Be aware of his tactics.
But every man is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. then when lust has conceived, it brings sin, and sin, when it is finished, bring forth death.” James 1:14,15
Don’t let Satan get a foot-hold. Today it may only be a sting; tomorrow an infection!
