Entrapment

Jill Briscoe

If the enemy can't separate you from God, he's content to do the next best thing... distract you with subtle traps that will draw you away from God. These traps may seem like normal things in life that you manage every day—time, money, self. But if you get caught up in the bait he sets in these areas, you'll struggle with priorities and gradually begin to turn away from God. And you might not even realize it. 

In Jill's insightful series, she teaches about these deceptive traps that women, in particular, often wander into. What specific bait are you most susceptible to? How can you resist and steer clear of the traps set before you? Are you stuck in one right now? As Jill explains in this series, the tools to break free are waiting for you in God's Word.

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. The Me Trap

    Jill Briscoe

    When little troubles appear in our lives, we can be surprised and wonder why God would allow such things to happen to us. Such thinking reveals that we may have fallen into the "Me Trap": Satan tempts us with "easy cheese" promising an easy life. But God never promised that life would be comfortable! 

    In this message, Jill Briscoe shows us how the troubles and pain in our lives are actually a way God molds us into Christ-like people.

  2. 2. The Money Trap

    Jill Briscoe

    We live in a culture that encourages greed. We feel the need to "keep up with the Joneses" and own things that we don't necessarily want or need. We are lured in by the "greed cheese" that Satan puts in the "Money Trap." But everything we have isn't even ours—it all belongs to God, and He entrusts us with what He knows we can handle. 

    In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches about the role money should play in our lives and gives us practical and challenging advice on how we should view and be good stewards of money.

  3. 3. The Mouth Trap

    Jill Briscoe

    We've all been on both sides of hurtful words. We've insulted and been insulted, gossiped and been gossiped about. We've spoken words that have been obscene, profane, idle, or unkind. It's no wonder the Bible is full of references to the tongue—so much destruction and yet so much encouragement, all from one little member of the body! 

    In this message, Jill Briscoe gives us an acrostic of "tongue" with examples of the tongue's destructive characteristics, as well as their opposites, so we can avoid the "Mouth Trap."

  4. 4. The Minute Trap

    Jill Briscoe

    Have you planned your funeral? Few of us have. We like to think of death as something far off in the future. Then once we do acknowledge death, sometimes we fall into "You Only Live Once" thinking and fill our time with whatever pleases us. But God never promised us a long life! He has our days numbered, and only He knows when that number is up and we'll be called to be with Him.

    In this message, Jill Briscoe cautions us to avoid the "Minute Trap" and offers us a better perspective on what this life really is and how we should use the time God has given us.

  5. 5. The Morality Trap

    Jill Briscoe

    If the enemy can't separate you from God, he's content to do the next best thing... distract you with subtle traps that will draw you away from God. These traps may seem like normal things in life that you manage every day—time, money, self. But if you get caught up in the bait he sets in these areas, you'll struggle with priorities and gradually begin to turn away from God. And you might not even realize it.
