I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore, Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more, But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry, From the waters lifted me, now safe am I. LOVE LIFTED ME


imgresQuicksand: It is usually represented as a deep pool of sandy goo which blends in with its surroundings, lying in wait to slowly suck in anyone who attempts to wander over it. And if you get caught in it, and you have no help to get out. Everything you try to do by yourself only allows the sand to just keep dragging its victims slowly underneath as you sink deeper and deeper, until you become completely submerged.

I think we all identify with that because sometimes, life gets like that when you have allowed the things of this world to occupy your mind and body instead of Christ. And when that happens, it’s easy to lose your focus and get dragged into the abyss of total destruction.  Just like quicksand, sin can have disastrous results. We find that sin is contagious, scandalous, repulsive and complete, if the Good Shepard is not there to rescue one of His lost sheep. Romans 6:23 tells us that ” For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

The sinner who never grasped onto the loving arms of Christ is usually lead into the sinking sand of sin. Forced by Satan to go as far as possible until you are completely submerged. Because Sin will always take you farther than you ever thought you would go. Slowly but surely taking control of your mind, and body each day that your eyes are not focused on the Master. Sin will always make your stay a lasting one, much longer than you thought you would stay, oh! i will only take this one drink I am not hurting anyone. Remember the forces of evil have no intentions of ever letting you go until you are completely submerged in sin.

Sin will also cost you far more than you wanted to pay, for it will cost you your life. By allowing Satan one moment of your time, while never becoming aware of the plea’s of God’s Holy Spirit and the saving power of the cross. Your stay will literally last a life time. Satan’s stronghold over us begins when we give Satan permission to enter our lives through disobedience to Gods laws of love. We permit him to take full control of our lives. As the “god of this world” he has the legitimate right to influence and harass us, if we allow him access to our lives.

Remember God will not force us to Choose Him over Satan. if we do not protest by using the armor of Christ salvation, we allow the forces of evil to take over our life, and at that point, Satan has a legal claim to our mind and body because by our choice and only our choice we allowed him to Be our master, and not God. And God will never overrule a person’s will. ‘That’s why it is important to #1. (know who we are in Christ.) John 1:12 “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.”

#2. (Our rights and privileges.)  Psalm 8:4-6. “What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And you imageshave crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; you have put all things under his feet.” And last but not least #3 (What power, and authority do we have as Gods children against Satan.) 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.

We then have the power through Christ and His Word and Spirit to demolish any, and all arguments, and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God. As “heirs of God and joint-heirs with Jesus Christ” it is important to pray without ceasing, for ourselves and others we love, who maybe blinded by the stronghold of Satan and can’t recognize the forces of evil to get free. As Christians and believers in Jesus Christ and Him crucified, we have the power through Christ to take authority over the enemy.

By calling out His name as Peter. “When he saw the wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink he cried out, “Lord, save me.” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and took hold of him. Matt 14:30-31. Remember Our Lord and Savior has proclaim liberty to all who are held captive by Satan. For Isaiah tells us in Isaiah 61:1, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.”


Remember our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was anointed by the Father to proclaim liberty to the captives of Satan to pull us to the shores of safety in His loving arms. Paul tells us in Tim.2:26, “And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. “Souls in danger, look above, Jesus completely saves, He will lift you by His love, out of the angry waves. He’s the Master of the sea, billows His will obey, He your Savior wants to be, be saved today.” Love Lifted Me
