I vividly remember the picture of Gulliver’s Travel’s story in my English textbook from my school days. The story is about this man called Gulliver who gets lost in a world of tiny people, and finds himself tied down with their ropes. They did not have huge ropes but had enough tiny ropes to bind this big guy! And these tiny people were so small in size that one small breath from Gulliver’s mouth could blow them away.
These tiny creatures that look so cute and enticing on the outside were the very ones that had bound the giant!
Have you ever played with threads? There is a possibility that after a while they can get so tangled up that it’s nearly impossible to straighten them out.
My dear friend, glad to meet you here as you read this post–this is the same strategy the midget devil uses against us. The truth is: We are giants in Christ, and the devil is powerless compared to the authority that Christ has put into us. But the devil uses tricks similar to the tiny people in Gulliver’s story to tie us down. He never starts off with a big dart, its always tiny desires, tiny flashes, tiny impressions, that negligible glance, the little wink, the insignificant smile, the petty jealousy, the unobtrusive pride, the little curiosity, the little dirty risk.These tiny things have the potential to pull us down and set us into bondage.
Friends, beware of the tiny knots of the devil. You may start innocently, but before you realize, it can become your major bondage and take you away from your first love. This is Holy Spirit’s billboard warning you, before these tiny knots take the better off you, let yourself lose!
What have been the tiny knots in your life that God is reminding you to fix?
