Day-by-Day – Day 84 – Deception


~Jeremiah 5:26-27a For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men. As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of deceit:

How can a Christian prevent himself from getting into a situation where he is trapped by wicked men? A believer who reads the Word and communes with the Lord will be led by His Holy Spirit along life’s path.

~Matthew 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Christ tried to warn His disciples that they would be dealing with wolves. He also exhorted them to be wise in their dealings. The Word says that one who is saved and has a good understanding of the Word will have wisdom.

~Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

We will be able to spot a wolf in sheep’s clothing. We will be able to discern deceitful men. If you struggle in being a good judge of character, get in the Word and ask the Lord to fill you with its wisdom!

“When a man gives himself up to a deceitful heart he gets to be a destroyer of others. Not content with being lost themselves, they become the servants of Satan to destroy others. A man catcher sets traps to catch men, aiming to pervert, to corrupt, to mislead, to be guile. Such fiends in human form have surely reached the last stage of corruption when they not only sin themselves, but are the creators of sin in others.”
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
