Red Rover, Red Rover

If anyone has ever played this game, then you know exactly what I'm talking about. But just in case you haven't heard of Red Rover, it's a game where there are two teams. One team calls out, "red rover, red rover, send (your name) right over." So that person runs to try and break through the other team. If that person can't break through, well he/she is stuck on the opposing team. However, if that person does break through, he/she will get to go back to his/her team but also take someone from the opposing team back with them and have more members on their side. Now I don't know how someone else played it but this is how we did it in MS. I brought this up because that is just how life works. When you feel that you are in a compromising position, the devil wants you to come over to his side. He doesn't want you to be happy with where you are. He doesn't want you to work out things at home, he wants you to run over and feel that there is no way out. But oh the joy when you see a breakthrough! Not only do you feel glad that you came through, but you feel glad that you can bring somebody else out of their breakthrough as well. This was just on my heart to share and I thought of Red Rover to illustrate my point.
1 Chronicles 4:10 (New King James Version)
And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.
