In our daily lives we face traps in our path placed there by the enemy and intended to destroy, distract and take us away from God and living in His purpose. We can easily fall into these traps if we are not watchful.
How are we to be watchful?
Psalm 18:35-36 tells us simply to seek help from the Lord! Why? Because the Word says, God’s help is “saving, He saves us from stepping into traps we face all around us. His help is also our “shield,” so we can defend any attack or trap thrown our way from the enemy. God’s help makes us “great.” Not meaning we are great but when the root of our help is from God, He makes us GREAT, like an Olympic hurdler jumping over obstacles, Gods help rises us up to jump over and overcome any obstacle, temptation, or trap set in our path!
And lastly, God gives us a wide path for our feet, a wide enough path where we can look far ahead and all around to be “watchful,” of the possible traps set up by the enemy. God gives us a broad path so our feet will not slip and we will not fall!
There is traps all around us constantly, the difference between stepping into a trap of death or overcoming a trap to life, it all rests upon where our help comes from! If your help is from God, you’re going to be just fine!!! We get through the enemies traps by looking to God and walking with God, He will get us through victoriously every single time!!!
‘You have given me your shield of victory. Your right hand supports me; your help has made me great. You have made a wide path for my feet to keep them from slipping.’
‘Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. ‘
1 Peter 5:8
