"...I have kept away from the paths of the destroyer." -Ps. 17:4
It makes sense. If you wanted to keep yourself from being eaten by a lion, you wouldnt walk a path that you knew was made and frequented by lions. If we know that a particular place, behavior, etc makes it tough for us to resist temptation or hold fast to the convictions birthed in us by God's word, we ought to avoid it whenever possible. For me, these "paths of the destroyer" are sometimes small and subtle, and might seem silly to others. But each of us has limits, boundaries set by the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit. When we listen, we keep from falling.

Hi Becky -

Excellent post! Not only do we have to beware of certain paths, but we must be mindful of the things that trigger behaviors. I must be careful when I'm:


At those times, I'm the most vulnerable to the enemy's temptations.
