  2. 2. TWO MINUTE TIMEOUT A COUPLE WINTERS AGO I WAS HIKING ON THE CREEPER TRAIL IN THE SNOW. I WAS ALMOST OFF ONE OF THE TRESTLES WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, A RABBIT RAN RIGHT AT ME. HE STOPPED JUST A FEW FEET FROM ME AND JUST LOOKED AT ME, HIS LITTLE NOSE TWITCHING. I WONDERED WHAT IN THE WORLD HE WAS DOING. SURELY THE RABBIT IS NOT ATTACKING ME I THOUGHT. THEN HE RAN BACK INTO THE FOREST. IN JUST ANOTHER FEW SECONDS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TRAIL I SAW ANOTHER CRITTER COMING OUT OF THE WOODS AND STOPPED SUDDENLY. IT WAS A MINK! HE SAW ME AND JOE WHO WAS WITH ME AND TURNED AND RAN BACK THE WAY HE CAME. BACK HOME I STUDIED UP ON MINKS AND RABBITS. MINKS EAT RABBITS. RABBITS ARE AFRAID OF MINKS. IN FACT SOMETIMES A MINK WILL FOLLOW A RABBIT INTO ITS’ OWN BURROW AND THE RABBIT WILL DIE OF A HEART ATTACK BEFORE THE MINK KILLS IT. THE RABBIT I SAW NO DOUBT SENSED THE NEARBY MINK AND WAS SEEKING PROTECTION. I GUESS MY PRESENCE SCARED AWAY THE MINK. AT LEAST FOR A TIME. IN THE SPRITUAL REALM, WE ARE A LOT LIKE THAT RABBIT. WE ARE DEFENSELESS AGAINST OUR ENEMY, SATAN, WHO WANTS TO DESTROY US. HE EVEN FOLLOWS US INTO OUR HOMES AND FLOODS OUR FAMILILIES WITH HIS LIES. WE NEED SOMEONE TO PROTECT AND DEFEND US TOO. FORTUNATELY BY THE GRACE OF GOD WE HAVE SUCH A DEFENDER. HIS NAME IS JESUS. WITHOUT HIM ON OUR SIDE, WE WOULD BE NO MATCH AGAIST SATAN. BUT WITH JESUS, HE CAN’T DESTROY US. HARASS US YES BUT NOT DESTROY. JOHN WRITES: 1 John 4:4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. TAKE HEART! BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS. WE ARE NEVER ALONE. WE HAVE VICTORY IN JESUS! GOD BLESS US ALL. I LOVE YOU!

Come join us! Sunday March 27th @ 7:00 AM Suburban Christian Church 20290 Wood Howell Rd. Bristol, VA 24202 Skiing with God Anyone who has been skiing before knows how important the ski poles are. They help you start down the mountain, they help you control when you need assistance, and can even help you stop if you’re going slow enough. I relate the poles to the Holy Spirit. It does the same things, helps your start your path to God, you can always lean on the spirit to help guide you in the right direction, and absolutely can prevent you from falling to sin. But most important thing is to never lose your ski pole, you've lost a key piece of your ski outfit. It makes steering and stop and going much more difficult if not impossible. Just the same if you lose the spirit then you've really hindered yourself. They make straps that go around your wrist to help hold on to them just like we have a cornerstone in the bible for a secure way to hold on to his spirit. So if you skied before you understand and if you haven't you need to search for videos and see how crucial the ski poles actually are. Afterwards sit down and relate to the example of the pole and Holy Spirit and see how bad a wipe out can be without either one.
