Conficker Worm

If you've been on the computer or listened to the news lately, you've heard of the conficker virus. April 1st is supposed to be the big day. We've been warned to make sure our computers are updated with the latest Windows applications and virus software. Thieves are trying to control our computers.

There is also a real enemy trying to take control of our lives. John 10:10 says, "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

Today we are watching because we have been warned; however, I heard this worm can be dormant in our computers for a while, and when we least expect begin stealing all our personal information.

Matthew 24:43 says, "But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into."

These words are a good reminder to us that we must stay alert every day. One way I keep myself on guard is by asking daily for God to show me areas of my life I need to correct. In coming days, I will discuss additional ways to stay alert. You may want to share some of your own. Feel free to comment.
