I was about to do a dedication one Saturday, when I heard a couple of kids shouting “HELP! OPEN THE DOOR!. They had locked themselves in a room while playing. They were TRAPPED, and didn’t know what to do. Us people outside were giving the kids instructions on how to unlock themselves.
We all have instances wherein we are like those kids. Not just literally, but figuratively as well. There are lots of TRAPS and sometimes we don’t know what to do with our situation, but David said in Psalm 31:4-5:
4Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge. 5Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD, the God of truth.
Things that I learned we can do when we’re trapped
1.God is our refuge. In the middle of the trap, God will protect us in trouble and in times of storm.
2.God is our redeemer. He will restore us he will set us free from every trap that we have.
David was set free from the trap of his life by committing his spirit to God in first part of verse 5 (Into your hands I commit my spirit;) and the same thing is true with us. As we commit our spirit to God we can receive freedom from the traps that is set for us by the enemy.
David said O LORD, the God of truth. This is our assurance of freedom because God will never fail us, He is always true to His promise.
In fact God set us free from the biggest trap of our Life in Romans 5:8, when he said
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
