Daily Verse: “Thorns and snares are in the way of the crooked; whoever guards his soul will keep far from them.” Prov. 22:5
Security through wisdom.
People underestimate the wisdom found in the Bible and its ability to help them avoid the thorns and snares of this world. Trusting in one’s knowledge will lead to a rugged journey of self-induced strife.
As someone who struggles against my natural tendency always to assume the worst-case scenario, following my thoughts leads me down a trail of thorns and snares. However, when I ask God to help me view people and scenarios from His perspective, I get a completely different view and avoid the traps of this world.
If we knew the struggles of our enemies, we would view them entirely differently.
“A shoe is always just a shoe until someone steps into it.” Rob Strasser, Air, A Story of Greatness
Step into Jesus’ shoes and ask Him to light the way for You. Gain Godly wisdom by pursuing the Savior and let Him guard you from the thorns and snares of this world.
Lord, forgive us for following our wisdom. Give us divine perspective in all we do. Help us to become more like Christ as we use His lens to view the world around us. Steer us from the thorns and snares; show us how You want us to go. IJNIP. Amen
