“For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence.”
Dear Lord, thank you that you deliver Deeper Still, and all who serve in it, from the snare of the trapper and from the deadly pestilence. I thank you that you cover this ministry team and participants with Your feathers and provide shelter in the refuge of your wings. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
There is an enemy out there. This enemy hates women, hates Christ followers, and hates freedom. The Word of God says that he is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. The weeks leading up to the retreat are prime times for the leaders in Deeper Still and the coming participants to become targets of his schemes.
This makes me think of the old Batman movie when Robin got out the “Shark Repellent Spray” and Robin said, “Holy Shark Repellent Batman!” as they defeated the shark and it left. No, we don’t have enemy repellent spray (that would be cool though!), but we have something better! PRAYER!! We have our shield of faith that we can hold up and quench every fiery dart of the wicked one (Ephesians 6:16)!
We have an Advocate who is GREATER! He is our Deliverer. Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world (1 John 4:4). The devil has to flee at the name of Jesus. And after every fiery dart has been quenched unable to harm us, we can say “Holy Dart Repellent Batman”! We may be a target, but we also have the repellent.
Thank you for praying for the Deeper Still Ministry!
