'ENTANGLED'

"Wherefore come out from among them, and be you separate, says the Lord and touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you" - 2 Corinthians 6:17 
.
Nobody can fight and defeat an enemy he has mingled with. You cannot be entangled with the affairs of this life and overcome the world. Until you come out of her, you'll be defeated. 
.
To be entangled means to interweave in such a manner that separation is difficult. When a soldier is entangled with the affairs of the civilian life, he'll lose FOCUS and DETERMINATION.
.
Lot's wife was entangled with Sodom and Gomorrah, this was why it was difficult for her to let go of the perverted city. After coming out of her, she looked back and became a pillar of salt (Gen. 19:26). It is in what your affection lies that makes you entangled.
.
Gehazi eyed the material things of Naaman and his generation became leprous. Demas forsook Paul because he had been entangled with the love of this present world (2 Tim. 4:10).
.
What you lust after becomes your object of entanglement. The serpent influenced Eve to lust after the forbidden fruit. She saw that it was good for food, and pleasant to the eyes and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she ate it and gave her husband (Gen. 3:6).
.
A man or woman that is has been entangled with an habit can influence you into that habit if you're not stronger.
.
What have you been entangled with? Bad habits? Works of the flesh? Addiction? The things of this world? Only the deliverance from above can completely set a man free from what he has been entangled with. And this is only possible when you cry out in persistent prayers.
