There’s a story on the Lucille Ball show, “I Love Lucy.” She travels through a small town and gets a speeding ticket and decides she’s going to talk her way out of a fine.

She enters the little police station and behind the desk is the Constable that cited her. She is determined, so she asks for the Chief of Police. He changes his cap that says “Chief”. She then asks for the mayor, the man changes his cap again and becomes the Mayor. To save her life, she can’t talk her way out of paying the fine.

Are we like that man? Do we change our cap every day? Do we wear the cap of, “certainty” one day, the next “uncertain”? We must wear the whole armor of God, putting on the helmet of salvation. Being certain God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. We must be aware of God living in us each day and follow through with our actions.

Each day we must face the battle with the Devil and his angels. The joy of the Lord is with us each day; we must only receive it. The savior is waiting to open the door, why don’t you let him come in?

(John 17:15) “My prayer is not that you take them our of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.”
