You need to clean your house this morning.
Mary (not pictured) woke up around 5am, like she did every day, to have devotion and prayer time before watching the JFA TV Ministry program that aired on a local station. That morning the topic was on the importance of keeping your body and your home clean.
Mary pondered the lesson as she took her dogs outside, and although she had not planned to clean her house that day, the impression that she should grew stronger until she decided to change her plans and clean first thing. She didn’t know why it was so important, but she could not deny the voice of the Holy Spirit.
Mary began to clean her house, sweeping the floors, washing the windows, and tidying up any misplaced objects. When she got to her bedroom, she started to clean under her bed and came face to face with a large venomous snake. Mary jumped away screaming. How did that thing get in her house? Why didn’t her dogs, who normally barked at bugs on the floor, alert her to this huge creature?
Mary’s husband had just left for work and wouldn’t return for hours, but she did not feel safe leaving the snake in her house all day. She would have to kill it herself.
Terrified, Mary prayed for strength and gathered her courage, telling herself, this snake is Satan and she must end its life. She grabbed a nearby stick and whacked it, all the while crying out, “Jesus help me!”
After the snake stopped moving, Mary took the snake outside and burned it for good measure.
Because Mary listened to God’s voice, even though it made little sense at the time, He protected her from the attack of the enemy.
“Now that I am working for God,” Mary said, “Satan is troubling me and trying to scare me. It is only by God’s grace that me and my husband are alive.”
Because Mary listened to God’s voice, even though it made little sense at the time, He protected her from the attack of the enemy. He gave her a powerful testimony to share with those around her and the callers to the TV Ministry.
