Resist The Devil And Keep Looking Up!

It’s All About Jesus!

Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — October 8, 2009:

The enemy wants to create threatening situations that will produce enough intimidation to keep you from walking and living in the Spirit. Watch for these attacks and refuse to allow them to keep you earthbound. Just as I have called you to come higher, the devil is calling for you to go down with discouragement and disappointment because of the things you face and have to deal with. Refuse to allow him to ground you, says the Lord. Resist him and keep looking up.

1 Peter 5:9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.

One may have heard the alarm go off.  One may have lain there until 3:15 AM.  One finally got up.  One may have gone into the bathroom and began to clean.  One came out and checked the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin and one’s e-mail with only minutes to spare.  One may have gone back into the bathroom.

One of the e-mails may have really disturbed one so much that it caused one to start late.  One may have been hurt, down to one’s soul.  The e-mail may not have been offensive; it may have been encouraging.  The message may have demonstrated the lack of discernment on the individual’s part and rebellion towards the Lord.  Anytime God speaks to anyone, what revelations He gives an individual is not up for debate.  Listen to what is said by the Lord and re-adjust your thinking to come into line with His.

One began by singing praises to the Lord, while continuing to clean the bathroom.  One may have confessed one’s sin.  This may have taken some time.  There were moments where one may not have said anything.  One may have had to get over the e-mail message quickly and move on.

One prayed for people who were sick.  One’s brother and father may have been the first priorities on one’s prayer list.  They may have just been sitting there in one’s mind, waiting.  Lord Jesus, thank you for hearing and answering one’s prayer requests.

One did not speak in tongues; one’s time ran out.  One may have finished up one’s prayers and left one’s prayer closet.

One may have asked the Lord if one could change one’s prayer time to midnight.  One may like to pray after reading the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin.  This may allow one to take any immediate action that the Lord may be requesting.  One may also want to start and finish earlier.  Whatever the Lord decides, that will one do.

Please, if you have not already, read: “Baptized By Blazing Fire!”  by Pastor Yong-Doo Kim! This may be an abridged version.  The full version of this book can be purchased.

Have a blessed day!
