For the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.
These are the opening lines from John Bevere’s book The Bait of Satan –
“Anyone who has trapped animals knows a trap needs one of two things to be successful. It must be hidden, in the hope that the animal will stumble upon it, and it must be baited to lure the animal into the trap’s deadly jaws. Satan, the enemy of our souls, incorporates both of these strategies as he lays out his most deceptive and deadly traps. They are both hidden and baited….Don’t forget he can disguise himself as a messenger of light. If we are not trained by the Word of God to divide rightly between good and evil, we won’t recognize his traps for what they are.”
Knowing that the enemy has already been successful in ensnaring the prodigal, I pray the Lord will be their confidence going forward. I pray He will train them in how to discern the traps set for them and teach them how to walk with Him, listen to Him, trust Him so their foot is not easily snared. May His Word be their training ground for knowing the difference between good and evil.
For the Lord will be ________’s confidence and will keep his/her foot from being snared.
