   Posted by: pastordiehl   in The Heart of Holiness

Early Friday morning I woke up, turned over and tried to go back to sleep. In that half awake state I had a vision. I saw myself lying there looking up at the ceiling. There I saw a bunch of tiny black caterpillars making a nest in one corner. Each was less than a half an inch long, but they were busily working away at their spider-web like nest, about a foot in diameter. As I lay there, I thought in my mind, should I clean those things out now, or try to get back to sleep and do it later.

Then, I had the awareness that if I did not do it now, the nest would get larger and larger, the caterpillars would multiply in number and size, and the task would become more and more difficult. I was suddenly awake and aware that God had just revealed Himself to me. The lesson was clear. If we Christians don’t act now to clean areas of our lives up, the task only increases and gets more difficult. Those caterpillars were making a home, not just visiting. It was a lesson on sin and holiness.

These nasty little critters in nasty little nests like those can really cause damage that CAN’T be fixed if it is left to fester and get ahold of the area it is in.
It’s best to get rid of bad behaviors/habits/thots/etc before they get a hold and cause lasting problems.
Good word Pastor!
