Breaking the Cycle

Isa 24:17  Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. 18  And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.

It is so sad to see people who can never get over the rough spots. Trouble after trouble accost them. They go from woe to despair to grief to sorrow, barely able to ever catch a break.

Here, it is prophesied of the wicked, that when they flee from some fear, they fall into a pit and as soon as they emerge from that pit, a snare reaches out and snags them.

What is the answer? How is the cycle broken?

The passage says that God's windows are open and He is watching from on high. It is He that sets up or tears down. He blesses and He oppresses.

It is our part to get into a place of blessing. Loving and serving God with our whole hearts brings us to a place of protection from that which we fear, from pits and snares.

Are you in that place of blessing or is your life such that God has no desire to charm your way?

Break the cycle by turning to Him today without reservation.
