All Tangled Up


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. It’s funny how we get so hooked up on these sayings that we treat them like scripture when it’s not.

What is it about things being tied up in knots that we hate?  For instance, when you reach for your favorite necklace to wear that day, but to your surprise it’s all tied up? Women know all too well that this can be a very tedious task that requires patience. I looked at the necklace and thought about how my life at times can become tangled up.

Imagine for a moment with me. The day that you surrender your life to Christ. The Lord Jesus was patient with you. He was very gentle in de-tangling you. He never ripped us apart. He looks at you and said, “you are my child” and you are free. How amazing is that?

When you and I are working on getting those knots out of a necklace we feel a sense of accomplishment. We learned a lesson from it never to allow those necklaces to be tangled again. I hate untangling necklaces especially when they are knotted up. But when I stop putting more effort into becoming frustrated and start being patient with it guess what? I am now able to untangle those knots.

  1. The Lord spoke to me through this in a powerful way because earlier He’d been telling me not to be yoked together with unbelievers. In so many ways we tangle ourselves up with people who aren’t going in the same direction and before you know it, we’ve been redirected!! What you’ve posted has just been another way to add weight to what the Lord has spoken to me! Thanks!!

    1. Praise God. We do tend to tangle ourselves up with people who aren’t going our direction. And on that note I have to add this. Even some saints who aren’t going in that direction we need to not entangle with them. Because it will be so easy to be distracted away from the path the Lord has set . Perfect scripture that comes to mind is this. The Lord says they worship me with their lips but their hearts are far from me.

      God always will confirm what He speaks to us. Again thanks for sharing. God bless you!! And I know as you continue to listen to the Holy Spirit and be obedient through what He spoke to you about. You will be blessed.
