Ps Matt continued our series on Spiritual Warfare, “Supernatural.”
Imagine yourself being chased by an evil person. You run up to your room and try to close the door, but the person sticks his shoe at the bottom end of the door so you can’t close it. That part of his foot that prevents you from closing the door effectively is called a “foothold.” Footholds are very dangerous. It allows thieves and other evil people the chance to threaten you, cause you to fret or panic, throw things at you, and give them an opportunity to eventually break in. If footholds allow wicked people to do such things, you can just think of what the devil, persistent as he is, can do when he secures a foothold in your life. Don’t allow him!
Ephesians 4:26 says, “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,27 and do not give the devil a foothold.”
