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.
