You are probably thinking… “really, farting?”
But yes. I have a powerful truth to share with you today and it’s all about farting.
Many would say that Martin Luther was one of the most important people in church history for the way he helped restore the gospel of grace and divert the church from their path of legalism and idol worship in the 1500s.
When asked if he, as a man doing great works for God, faced a lot of spiritual opposition and how he dealt with it, this was his response:
“Almost every night when I wake up the devil is there and wants to dispute with me. I have come to this conclusion: When the argument that the Christian is without the law and above the law doesn’t help, I instantly chase him away with a fart.”
Luther said – if calling the devil out on his lies doesn’t work, just fart!
Aside from being a very funny story, and maybe a commentary on how unlucky Luther’s wife was, there is something to learn here:
Col 2:15 says that the devil and all his host has been disarmed and defeated.
They have no power over you (yes even if you have sinned).
You can argue with him and fight him all you want. But the truth is at as little as a fart he has to run!
The only way he can touch you is if you give yourself over to him.
So don’t allow for a mindset that believes in a devil who is more powerful than Christ in you!
Hope that blesses you my friend and that you are having a great week.
