“For you are my rock and my fortress; and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me; you take me out of the net they have hidden for me, for you are my refuge. Into your hand I commit my spirit; you have redeemed me, O Lord, faithful God.”
Psalm 31:3-5 ESV
God is an exceptional place of security upon which you and I can depend. He provides protection for us and He releases us from the snares of our enemy Satan.
What are these traps? Nets are set out by predators to catch their prey that do not see them. The ambushes blend in with the surroundings so that a person does not see them ahead of time. Think of these as environments of temptation. Unethical work cultures, romantic relationships with unbelievers, churches that have begun sliding away from teaching truth.
Sure, when our radar is up we can spot the warning signs, but otherwise it is easy to find ourselves in the middle of difficulty situations from which we need a rescue. We can call out to God to release us; He will guide us to places of rest and respite from trouble, refreshing us for the journey ahead. You and I can trust our hearts to Him. 🚦
