"And Jesus answered them, 'See that no one leads you astray.'" ESV
Deception is something we feel happens to other people. The truth is, deceit is so subtle and inconspicuous, that even the most learned and spiritual of people can be deceived. We are commanded to watch out because deception can come to us through people or situations we would have never imagined. There is no place safe in this life but that deceit is lying in wait to catch us unsuspecting in it's trap. Prayer will keep us alert and watchful so we do not get deceived.
Heavenly Father, we thank You for giving us all we need to keep ourselves from being deceived. We know it is our responsibility to put on the whole armor so that we will be alert to the trickery of Satan. Help us by Your Spirit, to be aware of deception and to expose it for what it is. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
