We have an adversary who is very good at setting traps and snares. When we give in to temptation or head down the wrong path, we easily get entangled in sin. Much like a crab in a net, we cannot disentangle ourselves. If you are caught in a snare, turn from pride, look to the Lord and allow him to pluck your feet out of the net.

In the midst of pain and suffering it can be hard not to lose heart. But God’s Word says that your pain here on earth is a momentary affliction. Trust Jesus in your moments of darkness and rejoice that an eternal weight of glory awaits!
