Escaped from the snare...

God never intended you and I to live a stuck, trapped life.  The enemy, on the other hand, wants to keep us in a snare, to keep us as his own personal prisoner of war.  In satan's prison, he deprives us of light, space and food. he* loves to make us feel like the darkness is winning, that we are and always will be confined, limited, and spiritually emaciated. Expert fowler that he is, he knows what type of snare works best for each of us and what bait to use.  he can't read our minds, but he has studied us.  he knows our history, our life experiences, our strengths and our weaknesses.  he knows what sin snare that you would be most prone to, what negative emotion will most likely trip you up, what wrong way of thinking that he can take advantage of in your life.  his worst nightmare is seeing you free and soaring and fulfilling God's purpose and destiny.

(*I choose to always capitalize the name of God and the pronouns used for Him out of respect.  It is my personal preference to never capitalize the name of satan or the pronouns used for him because I do not want to give him that honor.  This is a personal preference and by no means a rule of thumb for others.)

  2. I love this! We are not supposed to lived like we are trapped. How different would every day look if we remembered this?

    1. Yes!!!! To live in freedom should be normal for us who are in Christ, right?

  3. I need to remember this every day. Some days I need several reminders. :)
