Baited Hooks

Have you ever thought about Adonai’s joy as a form of armor?  What about as a defense against the temptation to sin?

The joy of the Lord will arm us against the assaults of our spiritual enemies and put our mouths out of taste for those pleasures with which the tempter baits his hooks.

       ~ Matthew Henry (b: 1662- d: 1714), English clergyman
