morning God's friends start their day by talking to Him in
prayer. They ask Him to show them the work they should do. They
invite Him to help in their big and little decisions. They ask
Him for help to see Satan's tricks and avoid them. They read

putting fuel in the car, airplane or lawnmower. Without the
fuel, the machine will miss and sputter to a stop. We need the
Holy Spirit oil to help us obey. Without it we will not be ready
to meet Jesus. We will become discouraged and stop. We will miss
out on Heaven.
of demons will pretend to have faith in the Bible. They will
pretend to respect the institutions of the church. We must watch
for the decoys of Satan. When a hunter is trying to kill a duck,
he floats a pretend duck on the water. A duck flying overhead
