Devotional: Chase Away the Birds
Just as hackers poison and steal our data in an effort to take from us and gain for themselves, the enemy tries to hack us spiritually. Spiritual hacking takes place when the Devil gains access to the private places that were created for our communion and blessing from God. Genesis 15 is a time of communion between Abram and God. Abram is giving God an offering, and God is reemphasizing His promise to Abram. However, verse 11 says that “birds of prey” came to take the offering, but that Moses chased them away.
