Humans must breathe in the air of our atmosphere to survive. Many cities, because of pollution, face a dangerous level of contamination in their air. However, an even more deadly air affects both Christians and non-Christians. Ordinary methods or devices cannot detect this poisonous air. The apostle Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, spoke of the "air" when he said that Satan was "the ruler of the authority of the air." (Eph. 2:2) In that very same verse Paul said the "air" is "the spirit now working in the sons of disobedience." If we breathe in this “air,” we will begin to adopt their attitude, thoughts, speech, and conduct.

'We know that we are from God, but the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.' (1 John 5:19) Satan controls "the spirit," i.e., worldview, of every human alienated from God by infecting their beliefs about life. This is why Paul, in the same letter, exhorted us to be 'renewed in the spirit of our mind.' (Eph. 4:23) Therefore, Christians are to avoid taking in Satanic "air," being influenced by its values, beliefs, thinking, speech, and conduct, we must be renewing our mind day by day, discerning what is the will of God. (Rom. 12:2) Paul counseled, "Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth." (Col. 3:2) It is for this reason Marshall has penned the DAILY DEVOTIONAL: Daily Musings From the Old Testament, which can help us be protected against Satan's efforts at controlling our minds and hearts.

For each day of the year, DAILY DEVOTIONAL provides a Daily Bible Reading and comments for consideration.
