A friend of mine tells me he went so far into the darkness he thought he’d never see the light again. But he did, and his escape was nothing short of a miracle. He still struggles with the desires and addictions of his past, and I’ve assured him he’s not alone in that aspect. No matter how far removed from our sordid past we might be, the old things and Satan will continue the fight to get us back.
I contend we will never go back if we focus on God. I told my friend, “The devil couldn’t hold you, and he can’t have you back.” I believe that promise to be true regarding all God’s chosen children. Once He’s claimed us as His, it’s a done deal!
Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Psalms 123:7
