My husband and I aren’t dog owners but the majority of my family and friends are.
Many have more than one fur baby to keep them company. Dogs like to run free but leash laws are strictly enforced in many towns and cities.
You might not realize it but God keeps the devil on a leash.
“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them. The Lord said to Satan, ‘From where do you come?’ Satan answered the Lord and said, ‘From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.’The Lord said to Satan, ‘Have you considered My servant Job? For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, fearing God and turning away from evil.’ Then Satan answered the Lord, ‘Does Job fear God for nothing? Have You not made a fence around him and his house and all that he has, on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. But reach out with Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will certainly curse You to Your face.’Then the Lord said to Satan, ‘Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not reach out and put your hand on him.’ So Satan departed from the presence of the Lord (Job 1:6-12 NASB).”
God holds the leash; He limits the devil’s power.
Restrictions are strictly enforced.
“So the Lord said to Satan, ‘Behold, he is in your power, only spare his life (Job 2:6 NASB).”
