THE LAMP DEVOTION
Blessed be the Lord, who has not given us as prey to their teeth. 7 Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
One characteristic that sets you apart from the people living in the world is that Satan no longer has power over you. When Jesus died on Calvary, He broke every power the devil exercises over you and your life. That is the primary purpose for which He came into the world. The Son of God was manifest that He will destroy the works of the devil. This victory of Jesus over the devil and His works is your inheritance as a child of God.
Very often we miss this point. For as long as we live in the ignorance of this truth the devil keeps tossing us about like children playing with ping pong balls. The moment the awareness of this truth hits us and permeates our being, the snare is broken. Once the snare is broken, you have escaped. These are the words of the psalm above written by King David.
The Christian life is pleasant, refreshing and empowering when we live as people who have escaped from the snare of the devil. The sure way to continue living a life of freedom from Satan’s snare is continued childlike trust in the Lord. He only is our Help in time of trouble. He is our Refuge and He is our Deliverer. Our victory is guaranteed as we continue to yield our lives totally to Him. Whatever happens in this life, endeavor to live as one who has been set free by the Lord Jesus.
Thank God for the freedom that is yours by virtue of being in Christ.
Pray that you will not only be conscious of it but will live as one over whom the power of the devil is broken.
Father, please help me to henceforth live as a free saved soul, no longer in bondage.
I declare with the psalmist that my soul has escaped out of the snare of the fowler. Jesus my Lord and Deliverer has set me free never again to go into bondage. With the Holy Spirit daily by my side, no shackle of the devil can keep me in bondage again. I declare by divine authority that l am free for the rest of my life in the name of Jesus!
