OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS TUESDAY 20TH FEBRUARY 2018: AVOID SATAN’S BAIT

MEMORISE: Till a dart strikes through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not
that it is for his life. Proverbs 7:23

Please read: Judges 16:15-21

MESSAGE:
It is pretty difficult to catch an eagle because of the attitude at which it flies. If you fly high
spiritually, it will be very difficult for you to be caught by Satan’s traps.

Occasionally, it is
possible to ensnare and capture eagles that fly overhead in the jungle. To capture an eagle that has been sighted, hunters clear a space in the
jungle from which it can be monitored.

This space also gives it a clear view of the bait that has been set for it. The bait is usually a robust chicken with a rope tied around its neck so that
it can only move within a circle in the space that has been created. Eagles love to eat chickens, so when it sees the chicken, it will zoom
downwards at a very high speed to pick it up; but the rope will not let it go with the chicken.
Before it realizes what is happening, the hunters would have covered it with a net.

This is similar to how the devil gets divine eagles. He uses what they love most as bait.
This is why we must be wary of anything that appears too good and yet too easy to get. It
could be a bait to get you into Satan’s snare. Be very careful and watchful.

KEY POINT:
If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Numbers 3-4
Mark 3:22-25

Hymn 16
1. Christian, seek not yet repose
Hear thy gracious Savior say;
Thou art in the midst of foes:
Watch and pray.

2. Principalities and powers
Mustering their unseen array
Wait for the unguarded hours:
Watch and pray

3. Gird the heavenly armor on,
Wear it ever night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one:
Watch and pray.

4. Hear the victors who o’ercame,
Still they mark each warriors’s way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim,
Watch and pray.

5. Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
Him thou loves to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word:
Watch and pray.

6. Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day;
Pray, that help may be sent down:
Watch and pray.
