I recently saw an interesting show on television that covered various ways that some organisations and companies are having their computer systems hacked. Once the hackers are into the system, they can cause all sorts of chaos by encrypting, locking, removing, or corrupting files; they can block access by authorised people to areas of the system – and on it goes. They then hold the company to ransom demanding money to restore order.
Just as companies and organisations need to protect themselves against evil, we as individuals also have the same need. We need to be on guard against anything and anyone that will come between us and the way we want to live our lives – that is, walking along the path of goodness and love with God.
Lord we thank you for the protection that being in relationship with you brings us. Thank you for providing the armour that we need to stay safe. Amen
