I was bow hunting for elk in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho with an experienced bow hunter and friend from there, Mark. While hunting we came upon a mother bear and her clubs about sixty to seventy yards away. She stood up to defend her cubs. I started to raise my bow in defense, but my experienced partner made us back out of there quietly and get where our scent would be carried away from our would-be attacker.
The Bible says there are times when we are to resist the devil, and other times you just do not give the enemy an opportunity. Pray for the Lord’s discernment. “But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from every ‘grizzly’ situation.” (2 Thessalonians 3:3)
