Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer this line from Thomas Brooks.
“Satan with ease puts fallacies upon us by his golden baits, and then he leads us and leaves us in a fool’s paradise. He promises the soul honour, pleasure, profit, but pays the soul with the greatest contempt, shame, and loss that can be. ”
1 Peter 2:11 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
11 Beloved, I urge you as foreigners and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts, which wage war against the soul.
Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and thanks You. Bless You, for giving us wisdom to see the baited hooks of the evil one. Praise You for the way out and for the instruction to flee and abstain from the fleshy lusts. The temptations are great, but You are so much greater and we are so thankful for the love that covers a multitude of sin. Continue to give us Your strength as we are too weak to wage battle in the spiritual realms without Your armor protecting us. Give us the eyes to see these hooks and snares and the boldness and courage to strike them down with the mighty Word of God. In Jesus’ name, amen.
If this prayer blessed you or brought you peace, please share this with someone in need.
