2 Timothy 3:13 says, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
Remember that saying that says “Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive’. I believe several people said this and one of them was Shakespeare. but it’s it funny how we get so hooked up on these sayings that we treat them like scripture when it’s not.
Let me give you an example of what I am saying about that statement and let’s see how we can apply it to our lives. AMEN.
What is it about things being tied up in knots we hate, for instance when you get a necklace all tied up. Everything tangled up into knots, and as you know ladies this can be a very tedious task, it requires patience. As I began trying to get the knots out and twisting it I began to look at the necklace and thought about how our lives at times can become tangled up. And how Jesus must de-tangle us.
Imagine for a moment with me, the moment you came to Christ you had so much junk and the Son of Man was patient with each one of us. He was very gentle in de-tangling us, He never ripped us apart. He looks at us and says “now my child you are free” wow, how amazing is that?
Because when you and I are working on getting those knots out of a necklace we too feel an accomplishment of being set free, we learn from it never to allow those necklaces to be tangled again. I hate untangling necklaces especially when they are knotted up but once I stop putting more effort into becoming frustrated and start being patient with it, guess what I am now able to untangle those knots.
Your lesson for today is don’t be deceived by what it appears to be. We all will come across knots but instead of letting it get to us; how about thinking about how Jesus never let it get to Him. And then we too can untie the knots…AMEN
