My enemies (really Your enemies who know they are powerless before You and therefore target me as a way of hurting You) have developed intricate devices to entice me to stray from following Your word. But I have not strayed from Your word. 

It is not because I am smart enough to identify their snares and devices. I just know that anytime I am leaning toward straying from Your word it is not a thought of mine, and must be from the enemy -- with a clear head, I would always choose You. 

Only straying from Your word can allow me harm. There is nothing others, no matter how powerful, can do to harm me as serve I you. 

And so, I know that I am the source of all past pain, and vow never to stray again.

Psalms 119:110 (NIV) The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your precepts.
