January 11th - Entrapment, Part I

Many times, the difference between "The Thrill of Victory" and its inevitable companion, "The Agony of Defeat" is time and space. Victory was achieved because we were in the right place at the right time. Defeat occurred because we were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Now, we know it's God's plan and desire for us to have success. And unless we take pleasure in pain and agony, our personal desire is success. Unfortunately, some of us have become ensnared by a hidden trap by being lured into the wrong place at the wrong time. The key is to get to the fortress so that we can be protected from the snares and traps.

Victorious Scripture Text:
Psalm 91:1 (KJV) He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
