    I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, 'Now is come the salvation, the power, and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ; for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night.

    When you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most assuredly, I tell you, they have received their reward. Matthew 6:5 WEBIt was a hot summer day in the South and Dad and I were wo...

Trapped

  • Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, from the traps of the workers of iniquity. Let the wicked fall together into their own nets while I pass by. Psalms 141:9 WEB

    A simple but very effective trap that has been used throughout the ages is the pit trap. Hunters dig a deep pit and then place sharpened sticks in the bottom of it. They cover it with foliage and place something tantalizing in the center to lure the prey to it. When the prey goes after the bait, they fall into the pit and are caught in the trap. Something that looked really good, turned out to be hiding something very bad.

    While we are busy trying to live a Christian life, the enemy is busy digging pits for us to fall into. he tries to place tantalizing treats before us and if we fall for it, he will expose us and then try to draw as much attention to our failure as possible. Fallen Christians being laughed at by the world are the devil's delight. Broken homes, broken people, and various addictions all started with a single thought. When people fall, they often become trapped in an endless loop and just cannot seem to get out of it.

    Maintain a healthy balance in your life. When you start feeling those little warnings from the Holy Spirit, back away. Will the Lord let you fall into a trap? Apparently, because we get there by following our own lusts and desires, not His. A fish goes after the bait because something inside of them wants it. They are hungry. If they are not interested, then the bait does not work.

    David prayed for the Lord to keep him from the traps of His enemies (Psalm 141:9). Jesus told us in the model prayer, 'And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one' (Matthew 6:13). So be watchful of the tantalizing treats in your path today, and if you have already fallen, know that the Lord can still lead you out of it. It is not over yet.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please keep from falling into the traps of my enemies. Help me to see them clearly for what they are and avoid them. Please send the Comforter like You promised and cover me with Your peace, love, and grace today. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
