Sneak Attack - Monday, July 9th 2018
1 In the LORD I put my trust; How can you say to my soul, "Flee as a bird to your mountain"? 2 For look! The wicked bend their bow, They make ready their arrow on the string, That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.
David faced many attacks in his life as a man mightily used by the Lord. Because of envy King Saul tried to kill David before he became king. Later his own son would plot against him and seek to remove him from the throne.
When we place our trust in the Lord it is certain that we will be a target for the attack of the enemy. To discourage you the enemy can even spring a sudden attack upon you using your family or the people you worship and serve with. Friend, in order for our lives to be firmly built upon the foundation of trusting in the Lord we should be in the Word, be with our brothers and sisters in Christ, and be continually exhorting one another with love and encouragement.The Bible gives us a list of battle gear to prepare us for spiritual warfare in Ephesians 6 not because we don't expect to face battles but because we do.
Life Lesson: As believers and followers of Jesus we face battles and attacks in this world. From: 1) The world 2) The flesh 3) The devil and his fallen angels
Lord please help me to always put my trust in Your word by Your grace. When the attacks come let me look to Your Word and to the weapons that You have fashioned for me to stand against the enemy. In Jesus' name, amen.
