I Said to the Devil...

I pressed the gas pedal but instead of accelerating, the car slowed down. "There is something wrong with my new car. What if it stops altogether?" I thought driving in the middle lane of the highway. Fear wrenched my stomach. I stepped on the pedal and it slowed down back again. Maneuvering to a slower lane, I felt my heart in my throat. Fear found a permanent seat in my head and began its monologue: "Now, where is your God to rescue you from trouble. Didn't you pray this morning asking him to protect you?"
       Shaking, I still remembered what the bible says about situations like this in Psalm 91(MSG), " Say this: 'God, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and I’m safe! That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards.
His huge outstretched arms protect you— under them you’re perfectly safe.'
       I turned to the enemy in my head and told him, "Devil, this is what God says. Also, you have already been defeated at the cross of Jesus Christ! (John 19:30)
       I walk by faith in the victory that is already mine. Get out of my head and my car, in Jesus' name!"
I had no more problems with the car.
