Refuse To Look At What You Don’t Have Instead Of Being Grateful For What You Do Have

It’s All About Jesus!

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns — 11/25/2010:

Beloved, this is a time when you must refrain from comparing yourself to others. The enemy’s desire is to tempt you to open a door for his access by focusing on your lack. Refuse to look at what you don’t have instead of being grateful for what you do have. This is a snare and a trap that will take you down to the pit of discouragement and depression. Keep looking up, says the Lord.

2 Corinthians 10:12 For we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend themselves. But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

One may have awakened early.  One may have read the Spirit of Prophecy Bulletin for today.  One may have thought about the word “pit” and may have been disturbed by the Lord’s choice of words.  “Pit” may refer to hell.  One may have thought that one may need to make a quick attitude change in one’s behavior lately.  One may take heed and  have been encouraged.

One may have entered one’s prayer closet at 3:30 AM.  One may have praised the Lord with song, confessed one’s sins, thanked the Lord and prayed for a passage of scripture for today’s blog.  One may have been led to Isaiah 48.  Thank You Jesus!

One may have logged onto the website to pray for outstanding prayer requests.  Thank You Lord for hearing and answering each prayer request according to Your perfect will, in Jesus’ name.  Amen.
