Staying Out of the Trap
Scripture: Luke 21:34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap.
Observation: We can get so weighed down with life’s problems that we can’t see anything else. We miss the blessings and God’s direction for our life because we become blind. So when Jesus returns where will I be. Will I be ready to go or so distracted by my worries that I won’t realize he has returned.
Application: I need to remember everything on this earth is temporary and will have an end, but my life with Christ is eternal and deserves my complete attention. I have no reason not to trust Jesus with everything and be able to rest in His peace. I need to live so when my Lord returns He will find me busy doing what He has called me to do.
Prayer: Dear Lord please forgive your servant for my lack of faith. Help me not focus on the things of this world, but open up my mind and heart to the things that will glorify you.
