Break Out Of Your Snare!

2 Timothy 2:26 says of those opposing God, “And that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.” What did Jesus do to refute the devil’s lure?

Luke 4:4 says, “But Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” This is why we need to have God’s word hidden in our heart. We do not know ahead of time what lure satan will use to ensnare us.

Psalm 124:7 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.”

Psalm 149 is a triumphant psalm. Verse 6-9 says, “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute on them the written judgment—this honor have all the saints. Praise the Lord!”

Any vestige of our old heart idols, leaves opportunity for the enemy to use against us. His greatest goal is to keep us from intimate communion with the Lord. When we dwell in the secret place of communion with the Lord, all of his plans are blocked and ineffective.
