Flying with Thursday's Word by Brenda Smith, part 2

Thursday's Word

Potholes can sometimes be traps. We get trapped in muddy ditches of fruitless activity. When we get trapped in gossip, disagreements, fights, arguments, and discouragement, we are trapped in potholes out of which we cannot seem to climb out of. As God’s people we have to lay aside matters of preference in favor of things that hold eternal value. If you wish to be trapped in something,  get trapped in a promise of God!  Get trapped in the unity of the saints and believers! Get trapped in a prayer group that is built of prayer warriors! Get trapped in something you do not want to be rescued from, because it is so good you wish to tell everyone else about the goodness of God. The devil lays traps for us all the time. Let us walk into a trap that is laid by God. Just as Jesus prayed in the garden on that fateful evening for believers everywhere, ”that they may be as one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. (John 17:21 NKJV).
Praying for you always.
