Warding off evil

People from many families do things to ward off evil in the lives of their children, especially newborns and young ones. One of the things that they do is to apply "kajal"(kohl/surma) to the babies eyes. Others apply a kaala tikka (black dot) on the forehead of the baby or behind it's ear. This is to ward off bad spirits from affecting the child adversely. The trend may be understandable in the lives of them who are not believers in Jesus Christ, but when a believer does it and more so, a minister of the Gospel, it becomes a matter of concern for the Holy Spirit of God. Thus this dream.

In the dream, I saw a minister friend of mine, a young man in his thirties with his wife in their room, looking at their newborn son who was lying on the bed. As a camera zooms in to see things in macro, in the dream, my eyes were drawn towards the face of the baby which had a big black dot drawn on it. Seeing that, surprised me and I looked questioningly at the parents. The dream ended there.

Surely a believer in Jesus Christ, more so a minister should know what keeps evil away from his family. Jesus & Jesus alone...............Then why would he/his wife do it?

Surprising as it may seem, many so called Christians follow this and several other practices to ward off evil. The matter is perhaps of lack of faith in ones prayers and the promises of God and the lack of confidence that God alone is enough to keep us safe.

Do we, as believers in Jesus Christ, believe in our prayers? Do we believe in the promises of God to keep us safe from the evil one? Do we believe that God alone is enough to keep us safe from evil?

Perhaps a re-evaluation is needed in the lives of many believers.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust." Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. (Psalm 91:1-4)
