Scripture Reading: 1Sam 18:21
And Saul said, I will give him her, that she may be a snare to him, and that the hand of the Philistines may be against him. Wherefore Saul said to David, Thou shalt this day be my son in law in the one of the twain.
Reflections: A snare is a trap to get you into a limiting and inhibiting conditions or environment. King Saul wanted David dead and so he devised a snare to execute this ambition. He made an irresistible appeal to David to marry his daughter, Michal and requested a bride price of 100 foreskins of Philistine soldiers. This quest demanded that David fights the Philistine army alone. Saul knew that amid the fight, David was going to be killed. As innocent as David was, he had no idea that this was a snare. He therefore took up the challenge and entered the garrison of the philistines. Surprisingly he returned from the war with rather 200 foreskins to take the hand of Michal in marriage. Saul had such a shock! His snare had failed to work! Like David, the snares of your enemies against your life will cease to function. This will be occasioned by God’s anointing upon your life.
Prayer: Dear Lord, let any snare they lay before me fail so that they will know that you are God!
Confession: I am anointed by the Holy Spirit. The snares of my enemies against my life will always fail.
