Did you know that you are being hunted? Do you know that there are traps everywhere? When, you least expect it the devil is ready to pounce. He’s watching you, studying your every move, anticipating your every move, your every thought. He’s setting traps for you to fall into to stop you from growing in Christ. Prepare yourself for these traps for he is very tricky. You wouldn’t even give it a second thought that it was the devil whom tricked you. Don’t fall into his trap.
What we are up against
The Devil is a dangerous advisory who has many tricks up his sleeves. He hopes you don’t even believe that he is real, that makes his job so much easier. He doesn’t need to take credit for his victory’s right now, he is just as happy to wait till the end of time for his prize will be you joining him in the lake of fire.
He knows he has lost the war that will come in the end times, so he just wants to keep you from the blessings that God has for you. He wants everyone to join him in hell because he hates us just as he does God. He feels like he is the most important over God, us and the world.
What The Devil Will Do
The devil has many ways that he uses to trap us from the Lords blessings. Things you would never know that he had anything to do with. Things as simple as waking up in a bad mood.
Before you even get up out of bed the devil is trying to steal your joy. Telling you that you don’t want to even get out of bed, or today is going to be a bad day why even get up? That you hate your work and that you don’t get paid enough. People there that do less work make more money than you.
You hate the people at work and they hate you. You should just quit, all they do is spread rumors and talk behind your back. You don’t drive a nice car so people laugh at you. You don’t want to deal with the kids or your spouse.
All the things that happen in the world can cause you to lose focus on God. Things with the government and all that’s going on with the president and his impeachment. The rumors and lies that everyone spread can get you emotional and cause you to forget the bigger picture.
We need to pray that Gods will be done. God runs the world not the government. So we need to pray that Gods hand is moving the people in the government instead of the devil.
We hear people talk bad about us. people that are not lovers of Christ and the devil is using them to get to us. He said she said, you are this and that, makes us angry and when we are angry we don’t have our focus on God.
As Christians, we don’t talk bad about others, we pray and help strengthen each other. The devil is all about hats so we need to focus on love for God is love.
Before I was a Christian as a young child, kids would tease me about my race and me being over weight, even talk about my mom. I’d tell her that they were talking about her and her response would always be “so what it’s not hurting me any so let them talk all they want.”
So it doesn’t matter what people say or do, it’s just the devil using one of his many tricks to take your focus away. Just another trap!
Sex sells and can be found everywhere. T.V. movies in music just about everywhere you look there is some sexual content. Many don’t see it but it’s slipped into your children’s shows, cartoons, Disney movies ect.
So lust is another one of the devils traps. It’s why we have so many sexual transmitted diseases, some even killing us. The devil mixes this trap with another and that is drugs.
Drugs play a big part in the emotional trap, it’s the people who feel lost and alone that tend to use drugs and the same goes with sex as people are looking for love and comfort in something.
The devil makes you feel this way and we think that drugs and sex will help, only it makes things worse. Now you are addicted to drugs and having sex with random people and both are life threatening so now you are still lost and alone and no focus on God is to be found.
Addicted to drugs and no job leads to no money. Now you must steal or most sell their bodies to get more drugs or food or whatever it is that you need or want.
Money is the trap that is most likely one that everyone will fall into. With money, we can have anything we want. Fancy Houses, cars, clothes, women, drugs, jewelry, food ect.
We all have dreams of having it all and to do that we need money. Its’s the love of money and what will we do to get it. we are so focused on money and the things that we want that keeps us away from god.
God said He will provide all our needs, so we don’t need to focus on getting those things He has already promised us those things. If we focus on Him we need not worry for we will have them.
Billions of dollars are spent each year from people playing the lottery in hopes to strike it rich. If we trust in god and focus on Him we are set, So why not take that money and spend it wisely by helping people in need. If we all looked out for each other the world would be such a better place.
There are so many traps that the devil has, we must open our eyes and stay focused on God in order to see what’s right in front of our faces. Everywhere you look there is some type of trap that the devil has set and even if you fall into one it takes God to get out of it.
Let’s stay woke people. The best thing you can do is study your bibles and find other helpful books to keep your focus.
