Psalm 119.110

The way out

“The wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I have not gone astray from Your precepts” [Psalm 119.110 NASB]

We see here the unstopping but not unstoppable plans of the wicked and the resolve and resistance of the man of God. Temptation can, at times, seem tangible.

When we feel the most vulnerable, we are near to our greatest victory.

As with Peter, the Lord had equipped David beforehand with what he needed to defeat the enemy - His word and His prayers. Obedience and reliance on these two spiritual resources will also enable us to avoid his evil traps day-by-day.

There are no new weapons to be created; therefore, what God has already given is sufficient for every situation.

Throughout this entire Psalm, nothing seems to be able to deter David from total adherence and full reliance on the word of the Lord.

The hunted animal is more vulnerable to be ensnared than the one who is in its own habitation. David knew that the only safe place to be was in the fortress of the word of the Lord.

There are two traps which Satan uses. The first one is called diversion and the second is entitled delay.

Delilah managed with various enticements to hold Samson where he was and then he was unable to advance and conquer the Philistines.

Do you feel that you have been diverted from His best for you?

Like with Samson, the delaying time can often be a time of serious deliberation. Satan may have diverted you but he has not finally defeated you. [David McArdle]
