When you have made the discovery, you’re speechless. The realization of this silent terror, happening right ‘under your nose’, brings disbelief and a sinking feeling in the stomach.
It was Easter time and my wife and I were in ‘clean up mode’. The task at hand was to redesign and reorganize our garage. Upon shifting the first cupboard, these crawling raiders were discovered.
Immediately we were opening, pulling, pushing, testing every little crevice and space to see where the termites had been. We discovered two cupboards where they had set up home, having eaten the back sections of both storage units. These critters had also made a pathway along walls and the floor, all behind or underneath something.
The most interesting discovery, though, were the three cardboard boxes on the floor. Each looked quite sturdy but as we went to move them, they crumbled. The outside looked like a normal cardboard box, but the inside was eaten away to be paper-thin.
In life the devil sneaks in behind or underneath things, and if allowed will set up home in your life. He and his colleagues then set about ‘eating’ away at your life till there is only an empty shell left.
TODAY, let me remind you…
“…your strength must come from the Lord’s mighty power within you.” Ephesians 6:10
