Deliver Yourself!

There is a personal responsibility you have, single or married. That responsibility is that there are certain decisions you must make in your life all by yourself. Your parents can’t make that decision for you. Your fiance can’t do it for you. Not even your spouse can take that responsibility on your behalf.

Take a look at the scripture:

Pro 6:5 (KJV)
Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler.

Deliver thyself! The emphasis is explicit enough. You are the one that will deliver yourself from anytime that looks like a trap. 

What is the lust that draws you away?

Jas 1:14 (KJV)
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

When you identify that list or weakness, the you have identified the power behind the trap of the hunter, and then you can easily deliver yourself. 

The Amplified Bible puts it this way:

Jas 1:14 (AMPC)
But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions).

You are always baited by something that is consistent. That is the power behind the trap. The scripture says, deliver yourself!

In other words, don’t put the responsibility on God!

God said this is something you have to do yourself. Make up your mind not to cooperate with the traps of the enemy over your soul. 

Don’t live in pretense, and don’t live in denial. 

Another translation says you should run!

Pro 6:5 (MSG)
Run like a deer from the hunter, fly like a bird from the trapper!

God will not help you to run. You have to do the running away!

You already know the “lust” or the weakness, don’t you?

Run away from it and you would have delivered yourself.

Good morning.
