As I understand It – 1 John 1:7 (NIV)

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

Notes to Believers – Straying

March 6, 2022

My enemies (really Your enemies who know they are powerless before You and therefore target
me as a way of hurting You) have developed intricate devices to entice me to stray from following Your word. But I have not strayed from Your word.

It is not because I am smart enough to identify their snares and devices. I just know that anytime I am leaning toward straying from Your word, it is not a thought of mine and must be from the enemy — with a clear head, I would always choose You.

Only my straying from Your word can allow harm. There is nothing others, no matter how powerful, can do to harm me as serve you. So I know that I am the source of all past pain, and I vow never to stray again.

Exodus 20:5-6 (KJV) The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your precepts.
