Into the snare.

Posted by appolus on September 15, 2020

A skilled hunter has many tricks up his sleeve. One could call him crafty and devious, having the ability to get into the mind of that which he hunts and set many snares as he thinks necessary. There is often a carcass that has been torn to pieces but not yet fully consumed. The hunter knows that his prey will return to this carcass many times until is is consumed. Knowing this, he sets many traps around it.

He manipulates the landscape in an effort to funnel his prey in certain ways as to lead him right into the trap. The prey may smell danger and decide not to come to the carcass and go another way, the hunter knows this and has set many traps in order to maximize his potential of trapping the target. As long as the prey is anywhere near the carcass he is in great danger.

Do you have a rotting carcass in your life that you keep returning to and feeding from? It could be anything that is not of God. It could be bitterness, anger, hatred or unforgiveness. It could be sexual sin. Anything that is not of God and is a recurring theme in your mind or your life is a rotting carcass. The danger of course is that the hunter of your soul awaits your return. He has set snares and traps all around. Rotting carcasses also attract other wild animals. Now you may be fortunate for a time, but the hunter is very patient. While there is still meat on that carcass he knows that you will return, he knows where to wait for you.

Saints, we have to be as wise as a serpent and as harmless as a dove. Lets say you do very well and avoid responding to someone or something in a manner that is not pleasing to the Lord. You have done well. If you then stumble into a secondary snare, such as bitterness or unforgiveness, then you have been trapped all the same. There are sins to flee from and there is a devil to resist.

Get rid of every carcass in you life, draw close to the Lord and He will draw close to you. Resist the devil. That word resist in the Greek means to stand against, to withstand, to stand your ground. Submit to God and His Word and stand your ground and you will endure, you will overcome, you will not be trapped by the enemy of your soul. There is a way of escape and a way of entrapment. Lets not aid the enemy of our souls.
