Faith Child, there was Joshua doing great exploits for the Lord, till those from Gibeon came, who praised him and his leaders in Joshua chapter 9, beguiled him and his leaders and they fell for it. How often, we get trapped because on the spur of the moment, in the moment of madness, in a moment of weakness, we became unguarded and looking at the symptoms, the false evidences brought to our notice, we make a wrong decision of acquisance and we trap ourselves with an enemy.
So what to do? a decision was made, a word was given which by honour had to be kept? We need to turn our decisions made wrong though they may be, to the Lord to help us sort things out. Regrets we may have but we must revert to being guided by the Lord.
