THE NEED TO ESCAPE

PSALM 124

THE NEED TO ESCAPE

Over thirty years ago I heard a sermon titled ‘An Offense is the Seed of Betrayal.’ As I look back over my life I am ever thankful to God for that message, because it prepared me for one of the most powerful forces that seek to destroy our lives.

The words of David in this Psalm are powerful, “our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken and we have escaped, our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.”

Some of the ‘snares’ of life:

· Intimidation
· Unforgiveness
· Independence
· Holding an offence
· Fear

Therefore, don’t give the devil

ANY ADVANTAGE
ANY PERMISSION
ANY OPPORTUNITY

On our journey of ascent, never forget that our help is in ‘the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.’
