In a world so full of the “villains” pitfalls, it is such a blessing to realize that we have our “hero” to snatch us from the precipice before we slip off the edge. We use the word “Savior” for our Lord because His sacrifice has “saved” us from a devastating eternity in Hell... sometimes we need reminding that He also saves us in numerous ways each day as we come up against the enemy’s traps. Did you feel the tug of the enemy’s snare today? Did temptation rear its ugly head and beguile you if only for a moment...tempting you to consider indulging in some sinful activity or reaction? Take heart. Peter reminds us that we are not alone in our struggles, but need just to trust in our Lord and claim the assurances He has promised His children: “So also the Lord can rescue you and me from the temptations that surround us...” Seek His guidance, pledge your faith and trust to Him EVERYDAY of our lives ; then rest easy, assured of His ability and intention to rescue us from temptations.
