///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 47 | FEBRUARY 16, 2021 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
Matthew 10:16-17 (KJV)
One thing you must keep in mind is that, walking with the Lord and serving the purpose of heaven is surely not going to be all fun and bliss throughout. The reason is, there are devils and people out there who are against all that living for God is and may not stop at anything in stopping you from living for the Lord even if it includes terminating your life. It is for this reason you have to be as wise as a serpent.
The Lord's Word in our opening verse is the only time we are admonished to take a lesson from the serpent in the Bible. Symbolically, serpents have represented everything devilish and demonic in the Bible since the role it played in the fall of man but one thing you can take from them is their craftiness and wisdom. They never unduly expose themselves to attacks.
They are one of the few species who are very hated and would be killed at the slightest appearance in public so they never expose themselves. Many animals are noted for making special sounds that give them away but not a serpent. You will never know when it is around and that is how they survive.
That is the wisdom the child of God must have. Many people are so contrary to the call of God than you will ever know, So don't just throw yourself out there without caution. Learn to preserve the vision, the people and yourself through wisdom. You will need to learn the strategy of hiding to flourish. You are commanded to both love and to beware of men by the Lord so always open your eyes and deal wisely before you give yourself up for an untimely destruction.

I am as wise as a serpent. I deal in the world with open eyes. I always watch as I pray.
