“For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit. She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men.”
The foolishness of this world awaits the Christian as a prey.
Our enemy is the devil, and He seeks to devour us any way that he possibly can.
1 Peter 5:8-9
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”
It seems as if there are more people against the Name of Jesus with each passing day. Though we may be persecuted for believing in Him, we are not without hope.
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”
There is safety in knowing that no matter what is thrown against us, it cannot prevail for God will always get the victory.
1 John 5:4-5
“For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?”
He uses every persecution that we face for our good and His glory!
“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”
No matter the ditch or pit you find yourself in, He is there.
No matter the waters that seem to keep pulling you under, He is there.
Through the river or the fire, He is there.
Keep standing for the Truth, and allow the Lord to fight for you today.
Deuteronomy 33-34 | Acts 4 | Proverbs 3
