The devil will try to put a little inkling in your thought life to think about and to lead you away from the place that God wants you to be. It won't be a great big thing that alerts you to his action, but just some small thing that won't seem like that much to you.
Your spirit man wants to go with God because it's in intimate relationship with Him. God is dwelling in you. When you do something with your body that's sinful, the Holy Spirit knows it. He says, "Why did you do that?" Your body is His temple.
"Oh, God, I blew it again. Here I am, back again to ask for Your forgiveness. Please forgive me, Lord." How often do we go to Him asking this over and over again? All the time ... whenever we mess up.
Don't wait until the next morning to get rid of the frogs. "Here I am again, Lord, I blew it!" And He tells me, "Well, you'll just have to do penance this time and I'll think about it." NO, that's not what my Bible teaches.
My Bible says in 1 John 1:9 that when I come to Him and confess my sins ... that I blew it ... He is faithful and just to forgive me.
When does He forgive me? Right now, right there. Is He surprised that I sinned? NO. He's always ready and quick to forgive me and to give me another chance.
When we sin, we must be ready and quick to ask for His forgiveness, and not hang on to those frogs. The longer we wait to ask for forgiveness, the harder it is to get rid of them.
