Thoughts Of Devotion:
Our enemy is always looking for a way to bring down our spiritual life. He continuously traces his ability and cunningness against us. His plan is to try to discourage and destroy us, to the point of losing hope in God. The enemy uses all of his weapons, his lies and attacks to weaken our faith and trust in God. Psalm 18:17 says, ” He delivered me from my strong enemy, From those who hated me, For they were too strong for me.” No doubt the enemy has power, his strength is real and if it were not for the help of God, we could never overcome his attacks.
Only the help of God will deliver us from the snare of the enemy. Psalm 124: 7-8 says, ” Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; The snare is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” How many times has the enemy attempted to tie us down? On how many occasions have we seen and felt his bonds and traps around us. Throughout our life the battle has surely accelerated, but through it all, the Lord has delivered us!
Let us never forget that God is faithful to deliver His people, His help is certain when we depend completely in Him. We see that the psalmist David testified of this in 1 Samuel 17:37, ” Moreover David said, “The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!” On how many occasions has God not freed us from the claws of the lion and the bear? Praise the Lord that He has all power to deliver us from everything, including those impossible giants in our lives.
