In the Australian bush country grows a little plant called the “sundew”. It has a slender stem and tiny, round leaves fringed with hairs that glisten with bright drops of liquid as delicate as fine dew. Woe to the insect, however, that dares to dance on it. Although its attractive clusters of red, white, and pink blossoms are harmless, the leaves are deadly. The shiny moisture on each leaf is sticky and will imprison any bug that touches it. As an insect struggles to free itself, the vibration causes the leaves to close tightly around it. This innocent-looking plant then feeds on its victim.

Satan doesn’t tempt us with ugly, painful things. He tempts us with lovely, exciting things and then springs his trap. Ugly and painful are the results of his snare. I lived long enough in a sinful lifestyle that I know the devastation the deceitful trap came bring. I know what being trapped feels like.

Paul said, “Your adversary, the devil, walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Keep your eyes open for the trap today.

Isn’t it ironic that Satan, who is described as being such a forceful animal like a lion, is also so cunning and sly that he can trick us with false beauty and desire? Seems like we often don’t realize how bad something is or how dangerous it is until we are smack dab in the middle of it-trapped by the very thing that we thought would bring us happiness.
We DO need to use caution and discernment at every turn. God gives us these gifts and we should definitely make the most of them.

Deceit is a picture painted my our living today, you see it on TV, you see it in magazines , or movies , you see it making and shaping lives ,
DECEIT IS ACTUALLY A DEMON, HE HAS SET UP OFFICE AND A GOOD ONE POISONING EVERYTHING HE TOUCHES , The thing is we were young and dumb and din;t realize it, emotions make up over half our human body, thus using a great deal of control will save you from years of harmful downtime, If you control the Emotions you control he SIN, your guardian angel was set for you at birth talk to them and ask for their help they drive the demons from you , we are not alone if you have Jesus in your heart walk the light of Jesus and you will reap the rewards, deceit is a one night affair or stealing or lieing, ask yourself take a look into the future where will i end up and you amy just take another look at the deceit, that one time fling may come with a life time or deadly disease, the lie may cost you your job or your family or even worse you soul, so think long and hard. you will be found out , and if you already did, then just ask God and Jesus forgiveness , our father in heaven is so ready to love you like a child lost in the mountains he want you back
