PostSubject: The Enemy's Snare   Thu Jun 11, 2015 9:38 am

My eyes are fixed on you, O Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge – do not give me over to death. Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, from the traps set by evildoers. Psalm 141:8-9

Several years ago, I went to a Sportsman's Dinner at my church. The gentleman that spoke that evening lived much of his life outdoors. He focused on the various experiences he had over the years with trapping. Through the years, he had trapped enough animal pelts to provide well for his family. He explained how to set snares for birds and small game. He said it had to do with tricking the animal with bait made of morsels of meat or with bait that had certain smells.

The enemy of our souls sets snares for us, too. How many times have we been tricked and lured by things that take us far away from God? The bait Satan uses is attractive and draws us toward a deadly trap of self-reliance and pride. It's the same gimmick he has been using since the very beginning of time in the Garden of Eden. We know how the events of that day resulted in death.

But the rest of the Bible contains words of hope and life. Psalm 141 reminds us that the Lord is our refuge. Our loving God will see us through. Jesus makes the difference for us. He has provided salvation and sent the Holy Spirit to give us refuge in our time of need. Run to Him!

Insight: You can trust God to direct your footsteps on a path around or through land infested with the enemy's snares.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;

In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.

It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.
Proverbs 3:5-8  

Dear Lord, Please help me to trust in You, so You can direct me. I am tired of falling into the enemy's snare and trusting my own thoughts and plans. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:11-12 cheers
