“Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. 32 “But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail.” Luke 22:31-32
“Yet not the smallest grain shall fall to the ground.” Amos 9:9
“I also will keep you from the hour of trial.” Revelation 3:10
Sometimes we may imagine ourselves to be divinely convinced of the will of God, both by seeming outward providences and inward persuasions of faith; meanwhile, Satan may be employing all his efforts to sift us. But let us be of good courage; the Lord will disappoint him at last, and order all things for the good of His people. May the Lord make us watchful against our own spirit and against the evil one, especially when he is transformed into an angel of light, that it may not be in his power to sift us so as to gain an advantage over us by our listening to his inward suggestions or yielding to his subtle temptations.
Reader, Satan is always on the lookout to do you an injury; watch and pray lest you enter into temptation. Look to Jesus to keep you. Cry to Jesus whenever the enemy assaults you. Cry to the strong for strength, to the wise for wisdom, and to the Savior for deliverance. Jesus is your keeper and He who keeps you will not slumber. Let your daily prayer be, “Hold me up, and I shall be safe.”

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
