How To Avoid Trapping Yourself

How To Avoid Trapping Yourself


Last week, we saw a major lesson from the life and times of Mr and Mrs Potiphar.

Let’s go ahead and pick another lesson from the same story.

The devil is the same devil.He hasn’t changed.

He is the same old, defeated, rejected and embarrassed fellow.He is actually an ignorant fellow, but he is smart.

1 Corinthians 2:8 (BBE)
Of which not one of the rulers of this world had knowledge: for if they had, they would not have put the Lord of glory on the cross:

Did you see that?

He and his cohorts had no knowledge, but because he has been around for quite a while, he is smart.

He looks at you and plans a distraction based on your perceived weakness.

In the garden of Eden, he went to the woman when she was alone.

In the wilderness, he went to Jesus when he was alone.

Different scenarios but the same strategy.

Now back to the story of Joseph.

Genesis 39:10 (KJV)
And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph DAY BY DAY, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her. (emphasis mine).

Never you think the devil is tired.We are the ones who often get tired.

Do you have friends who pester you for jeru trip day by day?

Are you surrounded by people who constantly talk you down?

What you do everyday eventually becomes a habit.

You may think it’s nothing, but words are spirits.

All you need in life is consistency, either in the positive or negative direction.

Judges 16:16 (KJV) And it came to pass, when she pressed him DAILY with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death;(emphasis mine)

Did you see that as well?

Another scenario, same strategy.

He is an unbeliever, yet you hang out with him every now and then.

You think he is wasting his time right?She cooks for you every other day, and you tell yourself you are lucky?

OK, one more scripture.

1 Samuel 17:16 (KJV)
And the Philistine drew near MORNING AND EVENING, and presented himself forty days. (emphasis mine)

This is actually worse.

Never get to a point where you accommodate trash.

Never get to a point where you allow the devil dictate to you on a daily basis.

Never get to a point where you follow the desires of your flesh everyday.

If there is anything you should do everyday, it is to walk in the spirit.

Have a lovely day.

I call you blessed!

Use the share buttons, let’s spread the message of Christ together.
